Inclusion and diversity
We aim to create an inclusive workplace to attract and retain the most talented people from all backgrounds and cultures.
We focus on creating an inclusive organization where all employees feel engaged and know their work makes an important contribution. An inclusive environment welcomes different knowledge, perspectives, experiences and working styles from across our global population. This not only enhances individual creativity and innovation, but makes good business sense.
We are focused on enabling gender diversity in management and senior roles. In 2013 we introduced targeted individual and group coaching and sponsorship for emerging talent.
Making our business accessible to people with disabilities is extremely important to us and we are committed to ensuring our career opportunities and recruitment processes reflect this.
We are a founding member of Business Disability International (bdi), a not-for-profit social enterprise which brings together CEO’s of global businesses to think collectively about what businesses can do to encourage a better working environment for those with disabilities.
Within GSK, we have established a Global Disability Council which has agreed priority projects which we are implementing to help increase our disability confidence. We also run a number of employment initiatives, such as Project Search, designed to provide work experience and aid transition from education to work for young people with learning disabilities. In addition, we actively support a number of disability related charities.
