Our caring culture is fundamental to achieving Pfizer’s purpose to deliver breakthroughs that change patients’ livesTM. This includes developing innovative medicines and vaccines, encouraging colleague wellbeing, encouraging diversity and excellence in the workplace, supporting our community, and doing what we can to reduce our impact on the environment. Pfizer CARES incorporates four pillars to drive these efforts and support our caring culture.
Patients are at the centre of our daily work. We seek to listen to, empower and support patients who take our medicines and vaccines.
We do this in three key ways:
- Insights & Immersion – listening to patients and understanding their experience as best we can to respond with empathy and effective solutions where we can.
- Empowering & Equipping – investing in patient organisations and providing information to support clinical conversations that empower patients.
- Support & Service – investing in patient organisations and their services as well as some information and medication delivery services of our own.
The Pfizer CARES program is supported by the senior leadership team which meets regularly to discuss how Pfizer should best care for patients, colleagues, community, and our environment.
We achieve this by:
- Providing up to four volunteer days for colleagues
- A Pfizer CARES Community Collaboration Grant Program
- Team and individual volunteering activities
- Resources and support available for volunteering and running community events
- Pfizer Global Volunteer Challenge
- Funds raised through colleague donations / fundraising activity
- Community / CSR Nominations / Awards
- Global Health Fellows Opportunity
We care for colleagues with a safe, diverse, and inclusive workplace and we uphold our values of Courage, Excellence, Joy and Equity in how we go about each day. Pfizer cares for its colleagues through a workplace that fosters a sense of community, encourages innovation, and lives and breathes a commitment to health and wellness.
Pfizer New Zealand has worked consistently to build a creative and thriving culture and workforce. Pfizer’s core value of Equity
underpins our commitment to delivering innovative policies and programs that help us create a workplace where colleagues feel they are heard, valued and belong.
