Biogen is only as great as the people we attract, develop and retain. As a company on the forefront of cutting-edge science and medicine, our business depends on innovative thinking from passionate people who are inspired to impact the patients we serve.

Our culture

Our commitment to patients is the singular focus driving each of us to strive for excellence in our work, in our community and in ourselves.

We strive to foster a culture of excellence, in our employees, our processes and our results. It is important that our workplace culture enables employees to focus on priorities, make crisp decisions, be collaborative, think creatively and embrace accountability. By empowering employees, we believe we can best leverage their unique talents and abilities to support the company’s growth.

Our culture of excellence extends beyond just our day-to-day work. We are dedicated to giving back to the communities in which we live and work through programs like our annual global Care Deeply Volunteer Day, and our Community Labs in our Massachusetts and North Carolina locations. Our employees also participate in local fundraising campaigns to support key patient advocacy groups and our employee matching gifts program – just a few of the many efforts at the core of our dedication to changing lives around the world.

We celebrate and embrace innovative thinking, diversity and inclusion, and a culture that protects the health, safety and wellness of our employees. Success for our employees means success for our company and for the patients and caregivers who count on us every day.

Caring Deeply. Changing Lives. It’s not only what we do, it defines who we are.
