Our people are our most important asset, and fully leveraging their potential is critical to our success. We want them to feel proud of their work and the company they work for. We motivate our employees through strong leadership, individual development opportunities and rewards based on achievement.


Focusing on corporate strategy is essential to the company’s success. All our colleagues need to understand the strategy, as well as our values and key attributes for success, so that their daily activities can be aligned with the company’s goals and priorities. We therefore keep our employees up-to-date on the company’s key priorities and our progress towards reaching our goals.

We have long been committed to fostering a culture of respect, fairness and equal opportunity. Actelion does not tolerate any form of discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, disability or any other personal characteristics.

Actelion believes it is vital to create a diverse and inclusive workplace that attracts and retains the most talented people from all backgrounds and cultures. Our employees come from over 54 countries with almost an equal split between male and female (49.7% : 50.3%). We also believe that diversity of thought allows us to benefit from complementary expertise, driving our continued success.

Our ongoing efforts to improve employees’ health and well-being include programs such as stress management, mindfulness, onsite massages, flu shots, skin checks, etc. In November 2014, a modular online health portal (“myChange”) was launched at our headquarters in Switzerland. This should help our colleagues to gain more energy, improve concentration and enhance creativity.
