Building a culture of innovation: Fostering inclusivity and wellbeing in teams
We believe that innovation is at the centre of everything we do at UCB. We constantly look to evolve and improve our science, knowledge, and capabilities to help us continuously innovate. But beyond the science, UCB works hard to build a culture where colleagues feel supported, valued, and able to achieve great things.
To create a culture in which inspiration and innovation can flourish, it’s essential to nurture our colleagues, and prioritize the well-being of individuals in all aspects of their lives, including at work and at home. Beyond our role as scientists and colleagues, we are so much more. To allow us to truly succeed, UCB fosters a holistic approach where we are supported as fathers, daughters, sisters, and individuals and can be our entire selves at work.
I consider myself to be incredibly lucky to work somewhere where collaboration is embedded into the fabric of everything we do. Every day I collaborate with extraordinary people in my team and with other teams across UCB who are committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible. This culture of collaboration is integral to pushing through the difficult problems on the edge of scientific knowledge to make new breakthroughs that ultimately lead to better outcomes for patients.
Not only does UCB give space and support which makes innovation possible, but also values the importance of diversity and inclusion. To truly innovate it is essential to unlock the intellectual power of a diverse workforce. We strive to bring life-changing medicines to communities all over the world and to maximise value for patients. So, it’s vital that we see ourselves in those we serve and that our patients see themselves in us.
When people feel supported, trusted, and recognized, we can push science to the limit and beyond. By cultivating the right culture, we can unleash the potential for innovation and creativity that lead to great discoveries.
