Turning to culture in a crisis
By Tim Richmond
executive vice president, chief human resources officer, AbbVie
During times of uncertainty and fear, a solid foundation and clarity about what you believe in are invaluable – and a strong company culture provides both. Our AbbVie Principles – the guiding beliefs that anchor our culture and represent what we stand for as a company – ensure our mission and identity as an organization are always at the forefront of every decision we make.
As we continue to respond to the current COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve seen our Principles come to life in a number of ways.
Our science, healthcare and manufacturing employees are transforming lives by showing up to work each day – despite all the turmoil in the world – to continue advancing our pipeline and producing the essential medicines our patients need.
