Unique backgrounds, shared passion.
We believe that, collectively, our individual experiences allow us to better meet the needs of our patients and further our work to make the world a healthier place. Pfizer celebrates the array of unique qualities, perspectives and life experiences, which define us as individuals. This includes our visible differences such as gender, age, ethnicity, physical appearance, as well as other characteristics including work styles, sexual orientation, religious or national identity and education.
These traits create a vibrant community and a supportive culture that allows our people, regardless of where they work in the world, to feel valued, involved, supported and respected. And while we celebrate the differences that create the mosaic culture of Pfizer, it is diversity of thought that we value most.
Behind every Pfizer product and programme lies an idea that was given the freedom to flourish and a team that challenged conventional ways of thinking to develop something truly innovative. The success of our organisation relies on the kind of creative thinking that can only result from a diverse team of individuals, uninhibited to share, create and inspire each other toward the next great idea.
We are honoured to work alongside veterans of the armed services and believe that these brave individuals bring tremendous value to our organisation through their dedication and commitment to our goal of bringing better health to the world.
Employees with Disabilities
We work to provide qualified individuals with disabilities, including disabled veterans, the same career opportunities as any other prospective Pfizer colleague. We believe that physical and mental limitations shouldn’t hinder the best and brightest from making a difference in our organisation.
Pfizer has consistently been recognised as one of the best places to work for LGBT equality by the Corporate Equality Index, the leading U.S. survey that assesses businesses on their treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees, investors and consumers, since the Index was launched in 2002. Our 2011 recognition marks the eighth consecutive year that Pfizer has achieved the highest possible rating.
