As a growing company, it is important that we attract, retain and advance top talent from all backgrounds and cultures. We harness the power of difference to achieve business success: our employees come from diverse cultural backgrounds, representing 40 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. We will extend this analysis to all our geographic locations as we grow.
Our future as a company depends on a workplace that enables employees to achieve their full potential – both at work and outside the office. We believe that a culture fostering employees’ development and growth is essential to our success. We take an integrated approach to rewards and talent management, designed to build an organization of highly engaged and enthusiastic professionals.
Our simple and transparent reward and recognition philosophy is based on engaging everyone in an entrepreneurial approach to long-term value creation. Idorsia’s approach provides a simple and effective way to align individual and team efforts with Idorsia’s strategic priorities, as well as encouraging excellent performance and sharing the results that we achieve together.
To support our people in achieving their full potential, we provide a range of internal and external learning and development programs. We emphasize results-oriented coaching, encourage internal mentorship, offer a variety of training programs, and fully support language learning. Idorsia also provides financial assistance to employees who wish to advance their education through an accredited university or business school.
In 2021, we launched “Mental Health Matters”, a campaign to support our employees with training, tools and further resources for better mental health. This campaign supplements existing counseling and coaching services, which are offered, for example, to all permanent, temporary and hourly-paid employees at Idorsia’s headquarters in Switzerland, with support services in other countries varying.
