Who are we?
A science-led global healthcare company with a special purpose: to help people do more, feel better, live longer.
We have three global businesses that research, develop and manufacture innovative pharmaceutical medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products.
What do we want to do?
We aim to bring differentiated, high-quality and needed healthcare products to as many people as possible, with our three global businesses, scientific and technical know-how and talented people.
As a company which improves the lives of hundreds of millions of people globally with our medicines, vaccines and consumer products, we take pride in providing access to all – but we have an opportunity and obligation to do more to improve inclusion and diversity: for our people inside GSK; in the way we do business; and in the communities where we operate.
What is our global approach to inclusion and diversity?
We want our company to be a place where diversity of people and thought is valued everywhere and where we’re all able to be ourselves and feel a sense of belonging. Getting this right will strengthen our performance, by bringing us even closer to the needs of our customers and of each other.
The three pillars of our approach to inclusion and diversity are Our People, Our Business and Our Communities, but we’re starting inside our company. We’re committed to being more proactive at all levels so that our workforce reflects the communities we work and hire in, and our GSK leadership reflects our GSK workforce. So our focus for 2021 is on our people – the way we recruit and develop people, exploring ways to foster a more inclusive environment and making sure our policies and processes always promote equal opportunity.
How we are becoming a more inclusive organisation?
We’ve made good progress – delivering new inclusion training, launching a development programme for ethnically diverse employees, and we’re reviewing our recruitment and selection processes – to name a few. We’re eager to achieve even more – so we have set ourselves new aspirational targets to ensure we have the focus we need to do even better.
We take pride in being a company where everyone can be themselves, and where diversity is embraced and celebrated. At GSK, we all hold ourselves accountable for ensuring that respect and inclusivity are at the very heart of our culture as a company.
