At PPD, our corporate culture is a critical ingredient to our success. We value our employees and provide a work environment that allows people to grow and advance their abilities. We value teamwork and individuals who make a "can do" attitude a hallmark of their work.
First and foremost, we are client-focused and work hard to provide the level of service required to help our clients meet their objectives. We strive for excellence in all we do. We do our best and then we go the extra mile to do it better.
We encourage activities that build interdepartmental relationships and foster team-building in the workplace and the broader community. Our network of social and charitable committees offers a variety of activities, including intramural sports teams, volunteer opportunities, charitable fundraisers and social gatherings.
Our employees are our most valuable asset, and therefore encouraging their growth from both a professional and personal perspective is very important. With this in mind, we have developed a mentoring program with guidelines and helpful tips that is flexible for both formal and informal mentoring relationships. We encourage all employees to participate in this program, either as a mentor or mentee, and experience the benefits - personal, professional or academic.
Recognition and Rewards
We recognize employees who demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the areas of client service, quality, teamwork and collaboration, leadership and PPD core values. We will match the reward type and level with the contribution and ensure that awards are delivered with sincerity and emphasis on what is valued by the individual or the team. Rewards range from CEO Performance Excellence Awards to Volunteer Recognition Awards.
Cultural Awareness and Diversity
PPD is committed to diversity by way of equal treatment for all.
The ability to successfully meet the expectations of our clients, stakeholders, employees and community depends largely on the knowledge, skill, integrity, imagination and diversity of our employees. Thus, we strive to create an environment of mutual respect, support and teamwork for our global workforce as well as one that rewards quality and performance.
