Our values define our culture and describe the professional behaviour we expect from associates.
We have introduced values and behaviours that describe the professional behaviour we expect from our employees. These values were selected by the Executive Committee of Novartis – with input from associates in the UK and worldwide – and form an integral part of the framework we use to recruit people, develop them and assess and reward their performance. We will hold ourselves to account against these values and behaviours. Living our values and behaviours is how we do business.
Our values and behaviours are:
by encouraging people to experiment and take smart risks
by training our people and taking pride in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well
by capitalising on the diversity and creativity of our people to foster teamwork
by focusing on results and rewarding personal and collective achievement
by speaking up, challenging conventional thinking and doing the right thing
by advocating and applying high ethical standards every day
