At Idorsia, we harness the power of difference to achieve business success: our employees come from diverse cultural backgrounds, representing 38 nationalities.


We aim to create an inspiring working environment and provide equal opportunities for all our employees. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind.

In 2020, we conducted a gender equal pay analysis, which encouragingly revealed that there are no relevant differences in pay between men and women at the Swiss Headquarters of Idorsia. The required standard regression analysis – validated by external auditors – of the effect of gender on base salary, and on base salary including annual bonus, showed a non-significant difference of -0.34% and -0.49% in favor of men, respectively, which is well within the 5% tolerance threshold specified by the Federal Office for Gender Equality. For more information please refer to the gender equal pay analysis description in the Compensation Report 2020.

As a growing company, it is important that we attract, retain and advance top talent from all backgrounds and cultures. During the recruitment process, we seek to attract a diverse pool of candidates, focusing on the skill set they offer and matching their competencies to the behaviors we expect our people to live by daily and to the key qualifications required to fulfill the role.

Our people are committed to making Idorsia one of Europe’s leading biopharmaceutical companies, while at the same time developing both personally and professionally.

On December 31, 2020, Idorsia employed more than 900 permanent employees, apprentices, and post-docs with a diverse cultural background. With its headquarters in Allschwil (Basel, Switzerland), Idorsia is located at the heart of the border triangle between Switzerland, France, and Germany, and thus almost 3/4 of our employees are either Swiss, French, or German.
