Our purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future starts with our employees.

Our approach toward employees’ health is holistic, including physical and mental health dimensions and addressing both work- and non-work-related aspects of health. We have a clear framework for employee health globally, which helps us structure and focus existing efforts, promote proven practices and guide future developments. Going beyond, our approach to employee wellbeing puts the employee at the center of our engagement. We are evolving toward an integrated approach expected to include other dimensions of wellbeing going forward.
