Novartis Values & Behaviors
We want to be the most globally successful and respected corporation in the field of healthcare. To this end, we promote our strong values that define our culture and help us deliver on our strategy. The values include Innovation, Quality, Collaboration, Performance, Courage and Integrity.
Caring for Employees
Our success as a company depends on the individual performance and dedication of our people. We create a highly professional environment that helps teams and individuals deliver their best results.
We respect cultural, ethical and human values. We support workplace diversity – we understand that people are different, e.g. in their age, nationality, gender, experience or thinking style.
In 2014, we became signatories of Memorandum Diversity 2013+. The signatories are corporations that want to commit (or have already committed) to three key equal opportunities principles:
We promote opportunities for both women and men, to help reconcile their private and professional lives. In particular, we want to introduce and support flexible forms of work where this is possible.
We ensure the transparency of job prospects for both sexes, especially their balanced representation in the recruitment process.
We support women in their career development and provide them with development programs.
We remain committed to promoting women. In 2015, women accounted for 41% of Novartis Group management.
