People Performance Process
Our People Performance Process (3P) sets a global standard for performance management in Novo Nordisk. As an integrated part of the Novo Nordisk Way of Management, it ensures alignment of individual goals with our business goals to drive results and meet customer needs. With clear and measurable goals, everyone knows what is expected of them and it is easier to assess and reward performance and to spot and develop talent.
The Novo Nordisk Way includes our vision, our values and our commitment to the Triple Bottom Line principle. This provides a foundation to ensure that we stay on course: That we are focused on innovation. That we stay socially, environmentally and financially sound. And at the same time that our employees experience a positive work environment and conditions.
When you work at Novo Nordisk you come to realise that our company culture is more than words on a piece of paper – we live our values every single day. The values are the foundation for our business decisions. We have an inclusive culture where employees feel empowered and consensus is valued. Our commitment to quality and our focus on maintaining high ethical standards goes hand in hand with living up to our responsibilities to shareholders, patients and society.
Our values are global, but they are also owned and lived at a local
level, providing flexibility and fostering diversity in ideas.
Every year, thousands of Novo Nordisk employees volunteer for a wide variety of creative and ambitious activities that show social responsibility, help the local environment, or both. From carrying out free screenings for diabetes to keeping medical supply lines open in regions of conflict, our colleagues bring the unique values of Novo Nordisk to a wider audience and help raise awareness about what life is like for people with chronic conditions, their families and the communities that support them.
In the early spring of 1923, the first patients were treated with insulin produced by the founders of Novo Nordisk. We have come a long way since then and therapies have improved the lives of millions of people with diabetes, haemophilia and growth disorders all over the world - and helped to define Novo Nordisk as a world leader in therapeutic proteins.
To ensure we can continue helping people affected by chronic
conditions, our business needs to grow both profitably and
responsibly. We call this approach the Triple Bottom Line. It means
that Novo Nordisk is committed to considering the financial, social
and environmental impact of every decision as we work to create value
for individuals, society and investors.
