Foundation for Achievement
While we have high expectations of our employees’ performance, we don’t want them to feel that the time they spend at EMD Serono is just work. Rather, we want them to consider their jobs rewarding opportunities for personal growth and achievement. Our employees strive to make a positive difference every day in the lives of the patients they serve and the communities in which they work.
EMD Serono recognizes the importance of a healthy work/life balance and we are committed to helping our employees maintain that balance through a variety of programs we offer.
We believe in the value of transparency and practice it by ensuring ongoing, consistent communication throughout all levels of the organization. Internal programs and forums designed to foster open communication and sharing of ideas among employees and their colleagues include:
Lunch & Learns
Informal lunches with members of the senior leadership team
All-employee business update meetings designed to communicate key initiatives
HOOP Orientation Program for new employees
Our employees are engaged in programs specifically designed to meet the needs of our community. Some of our key employee workplace initiatives include:
Community Service Council – This is an interdisciplinary group of approximately 15 employees who act as internal and external ambassadors and are responsible for actively engaging other employees across the organization in company-sponsored community relations activities.
Community Service Days/Weeks – In the spring and fall of each year, employees are allowed to take a day off to volunteer on company time. Participation has led to the support of Habitat for Humanity, The Greater Boston Food Bank, Rockland Public Schools, and Father Bill’s & Mainspring.
Employee Matching Contribution Program – EMD Serono encourages employees to support their charities financially by providing matches on eligible donations.
Our responsibility to our patients, employees, communities, and the environment is the cornerstone of being a responsible corporate citizen and a neighbor of choice. It is essential to everything we do at EMD Serono.
