Careers Home  /  Career Stories  /  In Their Own Words: Why Work Flexibility Motivates Our Team

Building a high-achieving workforce starts with a full understanding of our colleagues and their needs in both their professional and personal lives. That’s why we offer flexible ways of working—so we can each work effectively and still meet our mission to discover and deliver transformational medicines for patients around the globe. And as employees return to the office, this level of flexibility is key to staying engaged.

Take Lotus Gibbs, Associate Director, Professional Development, for example, who shared, "I enjoy flexible ways of working because it gives me the autonomy to choose when and where I work. As a single parent, this has proven critical.”
Lorena Kuri, Head of Clinical Trial Diversity Strategy, agrees. “I believe in the power of collaboration. Roles like mine have a stronger impact when we interact with our colleagues. I flex by coming to the office when I need to be with them, and balancing my responsibilities as a working mom.”

Yusuf Oni, Associate Scientific Director, shared, "As an essential employee, one needs to be in the lab most days. Flexible ways of working has allowed me to meet all of my obligations. I flex by taking remote meetings with my colleagues."
