Our Value of Inclusion Circles the Globe

We are proud of our company’s commitment to Inclusion & Diversity and the meaningful steps we are taking to drive equitable advancement and outcomes for all. Our collaborative efforts to foster inclusion require transparency across our organization. We want our workforce, partners and patients to be aware of our culture of inclusion, which encourages all to pursue innovative ideas, develop leadership capabilities and gain valuable, diverse experiences to shape exciting careers.

This inclusion permeates the culture of BMS, as demonstrated by the four active employee-led People and Business Resource Groups (PBRG) in Germany: DAWN, CLIMB, B-NOW and PRIDE. Each of these offer employees opportunities to use their unique skills and perspectives to further inclusion and diversity through support of our company, our communities and our patients around the world.

We incent, recognize, reward and celebrate those who consistently embody our mission and behaviors to reach above and beyond, driving our business forward. We do this in a few ways:

  • Compensation: Our competitive compensation program aligns with a pay-for-performance culture and an unwavering commitment to the company’s mission. We provide competitive base salaries and significant opportunities to earn variable compensation in the form of bonuses and/or stock-based compensation. Our variable pay plans reward a balance of individual and company performance.
  • Bonuses: We win when we work together. That’s why our annual bonus plan rewards both individual and company performance, including the discovery and development of new medicines and the delivery of current medicines to the patients who need them. In addition, our sales incentive plans reinforce our commitment to delivering transformative medicines to patients by providing competitive incentive opportunities to our field sales professionals.
  • Recognition Awards: We believe in the power of "thank you" and celebrating the extraordinary behaviors, efforts and achievements of our employees. With our global Bravo platform, you can recognize fellow employees from across the aisle or around the world, encouraging others to join in through social recognition.
  • Employee Referral Program: When you refer a friend whose passion and talent are the right fit for us, and we hire them, you receive a cash bonus as thanks.
  • Anniversaries: In celebration of our time together, we honor employee’s service milestones and continued commitment to our mission.

Mit diesen Angeboten wollen wir alle Mitarbeiter:innen zum selbstgesteuerten und kollaborativen Lernen befähigen, damit Lernen ein fester Bestandteil des täglichen Arbeitens wird.

We are a culture of savers who recognize the value of saving early and often and seize the opportunities to do so. Our broad range of benefits opportunities can enrich your total rewards experience and financial readiness to take on whatever is next in your life:

  • 401(k) Savings Plan: When you participate in our tax-advantaged 401(k) plan, we match your contribution dollar-for-dollar up to 6% of eligible pay for U.S. employees who do not participate in a collective bargaining agreement.
