AbbVie Named Among Fortune’s 100 Best Companies To Work For

AbbVie ranked No. 15 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2021.

 

For the fifth year in a row, Great Place To Work US and Fortune named AbbVie as one of the 100 Best Companies To Work For.

“The work we do has an important purpose,” Tim Richmond, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at AbbVie, told Fortune. “And we empower employees to collaborate, speak up, be accountable and foster creativity in the service of that purpose.”

“Our programs and benefits have evolved to continue to help our employees achieve success in all aspects of their lives. With strategic, innovative offerings and strong executive commitment, we empower employees to chart their own course.”

During the pandemic, AbbVie answered their U.S. employees’ needs for an increase in support, providing more caregiver and parental leave. They also promoted programs for employees to be assisted with finding care, supporting students, accessing financial assistance and improving emotional well-being.

“There are many factors that lead to engaged employees who are passionate about their jobs, but there’s one element you must ensure remains constant — and that’s staying true to your convictions,” says Richmond. “We are committed to supporting well-being, as well as operating with integrity, driving innovation, transforming lives, embracing diversity and inclusion and serving our community.”
