Pfizer UK recognised by the Top Employer Institute for Third Year Running

02/04/18

 

I am delighted to share the great news that, for the third year running, Pfizer UK has been recognised by the Top Employer Institute for being a leading employer.

 

It's obviously very exciting and gratifying to be acknowledged by an external body. This will help us in our ongoing drive to attract the best talent, while also confirming our belief that  Pfizer UK is best in class when it comes to employee experience.

 

Stringent Evaluation

The Top Employer Institute, based in the Netherlands, is ‘the global certifier of excellence in employee conditions', an external best practice and benchmarking organisation that has been operating since 1991. It follows a stringent evaluation process focusing on evaluating HR best practice.

 

Better Learning, Development & Leadership

The results of last year’s survey suggested that we could build on our Learning and Development programmes. As a result, we launched an internal initiative designed to ensure that we demonstrate leadership at every level throughout the business, and that our culture is renowned for fostering development.

 

Attracting & Developing Talent

This year, the Institute found that we’ve continued our focus on attracting and developing the best talent, as a result, we achieved the scores of 100% in Talent Strategy and Career & Succession Management, and 99% in Leadership Development. This is key to our ongoing success and we will continue to focus on maintaining this positive momentum.

 

Our Culture

Our Culture score continues to improve year-on-year and we remain commmitted to maintaining an internal culture that is built on the power of our colleagues' passion for their work. We pride ourselves on our flexible working practices and benefits scheme which now gives employees more choice in how they balance work and home life, ensuring they are well rewarded for all their efforts.

Absolutely thrilled that we have received our Top Employer certificate for the third year running. With our overall score improving yet again, we’re proud to be recognised for having a culture that supports our people to thrive.”

Team Effort

It’s really heartening that it’s been a true team effort from the whole of the HR Department to gain this recognition for a third year. I’d like to thank them personally for making this happen and showcasing our strengths so effectively

 

Future focus

But we won’t be resting on our laurels. We will be using the data from this year’s results to identify further areas for growth and improvement to make Pfizer UK as great a place to work as possible.

It’s important to remember that the work we do in HR is not in isolation – we will continue to ensure that the environment we create supports our culture of togetherness and performance, providing outstanding care and support for both patients and customers alike.
