Sandoz is uniquely positioned as both a global generics leader in its own right and part of the worldwide Novartis Group. As one of three industry-leading divisions that have innovation power backed by global scale, Sandoz is an increasingly important strategic driver for Novartis overall.
Our greatest differentiators are our entrepreneurial culture and the quality and commitment of our associates. We combine the resources and long-term vision of a global pharmaceutical leader with the energy, drive and flexibility of a start-up. Many of our top leaders cite this deep-rooted entrepreneurial culture as one of the main reasons they choose to work at Sandoz.
The group-wide Novartis Values & Behaviors are key to creating a culture that is performance oriented but still focused on being curious, inspired and unbossed, while safeguarding quality and integrity.
Our company values are integrated into our Performance Management system to incentivize and reward a “values driven” performance.
Sandoz strives to provide a challenging learning environment for all associates across the organization. By investing in the development of our people, we fuel our current and future growth and reinforce our leadership in the global generics industry.
Our people development programmes are focused on learning activities that have the greatest impact on associate development. This often includes experience-based learning activities that are complemented by class room learning and workshops.
All of our learning and development activities at Sandoz take place in a local, regional or global context, and are supported by a strong collaboration with Novartis. As part of the Novartis group, Sandoz employees also benefit from the exchange of knowledge and sharing of best practices that occur across Novartis business divisions.
We have an ongoing focus to develop people, so that they might progress their career and personal development, and ultimately grow our business. This is one of the areas for which we hold our managers accountable, and why people management is a key objective of every Sandoz manager.
At Sandoz, we make certain that our people remain a source of competitive advantage in the marketplace.
