BEST PRACTICES

Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NPC) continues to maintain an impressive track record on the Top 50 list, and the company is well known for its proven commitment to promoting women into management positions.

D&I strategy places an emphasis on influencing the diversity of patients, customers and suppliers, as well as recruitment, on-boarding and talent development. In 2015, the company increased enterprise engagement and accountability for diversity and inclusion by transitioning ownership of the D&I Strategy to the NPC Pharmaceutical Executive Committee (PEC), an intra-divisional leadership team. The PEC is now directly responsible for setting the strategy and measuring progress/ outcomes aligned with NPC’s business objectives. In addition, NPC is forming new divisional councils that will implement the D&I strategy and key PEC decisions.

The company is also continuing to enhance the level of D&I competencies for human resources professionals and leaders through learning focused on unconscious bias, inclusive leadership, disabilities/accommodations and compensation/pay equity.
