At Amgen, we understand that to successfully sustain and grow as a global enterprise and deliver for patients — we must ensure a diverse and inclusive work environment.
Culture at Amgen
Our culture is what makes Amgen a special place to work. We have a powerful shared purpose around our mission – to serve patients. We respect one another, recognize contributions, and have embedded collaboration, trust, empowerment and inclusion in all that we do.
We equip all of our staff members to live well-rounded, healthy lives. Most recently, Amgen added transgender benefits and continues to pride itself on industry-leading, family-friendly offerings for families of all compositions.
We actively recruit to foster diverse points of view – helping to drive innovation and creativity.
We encourage open dialogue and professional debate to land on the best solutions for our patients. We pursue connectivity and diverse points of view – often by tapping into our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).
Our ERGs are groups of employees organized around a primary diversity attribute that promote employee development, professional growth and inspiration. The ERGs provide valuable business information and help lead initiatives around the world. Some the activities the ERGs lead include: networking events, community activities, healthcare topics relevant in local communities and public speaking events. With more than 20 ERG chapters around the world, we are able to benefit from a variety of perspectives to advise on business issues.
Our Focus on Partnerships, Community, and Engagement
We are proud of the global recognition we have received for diversity and inclusion:
Human Rights Campaign 100% Corporate Equality Score
Partner to the Management Leadership for Tomorrow
Member of the California Black Chamber of Commerce
Sponsor of the Secretary of Defense Corporate Fellows Program
We are always learning and seeking new and interesting ways to connect with our patients, partners and local communities around the world. We care about community outreach and take pride in educating people on healthcare and learning about the local challenges and implications of healthcare decisions. Mutual respect and equality are core beliefs at Amgen. We remain committed to creating new diversity partners that expand the traditional and customary ways of connecting and engaging with communities.
Science is what we do and drives discovery, but a deep commitment to a culture of diversity and inclusion is how we work.
