Developing the people who are driving innovation
Innovation is fueled by great talent. When gifted minds can come together and perform at their very best, just about anything is possible.
But how do you bring out the best in a workforce approximately 50,000 strong? At AbbVie, part of the answer lies in learning and development.
Research shows that when employees have more time to learn they’re more engaged and a more engaged workforce is more likely to deliver business results.
Understanding the value of learning, AbbVie invests in employee development across the globe. As a result, 80% of AbbVie employees say they’re pleased with development opportunities, a sentiment that’s grown year-over-year. And, based on employees’ input, AbbVie ranked #4 on the Great Place to Work World’s Best Workplaces list in 2021, its fifth year on the list. Read on to uncover three reasons why AbbVie’s approach to learning is unique.
Make learning and development a part of the culture
Leaders at AbbVie have made learning and development part of their entire culture, shaping the way in which every employee works and delivers value to patients. "With strategic, innovative offerings and strong executive commitment, we empower employees to chart their own course," says Tim Richmond, Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer, AbbVie.
