We focus not simply on what we do but also on how we do it. This means we continually review and update management policies and procedures to reflect the changing forces in science, technology and stakeholder expectations. We listen and learn. For example, in 2006-2007 we reviewed and revised our clinical trial policies and advertising practices and translated our Pfizer Code of Conduct into 36 languages.

    We share one overarching goal with them — good health for all people at a manageable cost. To help achieve this responsibly, below are the concrete policies and procedures covering the major facets of our business to which all employees around the world must adhere.

    HIRING BASED ON FACTS, NOT BIAS

    We’re led by science. So, we’re always keen to explore anything which will ensure our processes are free from bias when we’re hiring and interviewing.

    That’s why we’ve incorporated HireVue into our hiring process. It’s an AI-driven platform which helps us consider more applicants, drive consistency, reduce any unconscious bias and make better decisions.

    It fits neatly into our current process. Once you apply, our recruiters will review your resumé to see how it fits what we’re looking for. If that’s successful, you’ll be sent a link to complete the HireVue assessment. That result will then be shared with the hiring manager for review and subsequent interviews.

    The HireVue assessment consists of an online interview, and a gamification component which measures problem solving and cognitive thinking. The assessment competencies are aligned to our core values of Equity, Excellence, Courage & Joy so we know you’ll be the right fit for us, and us for you.

    It leads to a fairer process all around and will help ensure a better experience for hiring managers, recruiters and candidates alike.

    EEO1 REPORT DISCLOSURE

    Pfizer is publicly disclosing the 2020 EEO-1 Report in the interest of serving greater transparency.  We also will disclose future EEO-1 Reports, as they are filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).  The data in the report is based on the last company pay period of the 2020 calendar year (December 21-28, 2020) and reflects Pfizer’s U.S. workforce as of that period.  The broad job categories by which the data is portrayed are dictated by EEOC requirements and do not necessarily match the job categories by which Pfizer evaluates its diversity and inclusion data. (Please refer to https://eeocdata.org/eeo1/howto/instructionbooklet#categories for a description of each of the EEOC’s job categories.) Thus, meaningful comparisons between EEO-1 Report data and other descriptions of Pfizer’s diversity statistics and disclosures may not be possible. 

    We remain fully committed to our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, our opportunity parity goals and our ongoing efforts to make Pfizer a great place to work for all.  For a further discussion of Pfizer’s Human Capital efforts, including diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, please refer to the “Bold Moves – Unleash the Power of Our People” section of the ESG report found at https://annualreview.pfizer.com/files/Pfizer-ESG-Report-2020_2021-03-10.pdf.

  • Behavior-based interviewing is driven by the philosophy that past performance predicts future performance. Since performance is a result of how we behave, we can predict a candidate’s future performance by probing into, or assessing, past behaviors.
    Behavioral-based interviews are designed to assess a candidate against a standard set of competencies required for the role.  Competencies are the attributes of an individual that are important for effective performance in a role and are usually a mixture of skills, ability, motivation and knowledge.

    HOW ARE BEHAVIOR-BASED INTERVIEWS CONDUCTED?

    A behavior-based interview is a structured interview made up of specific questions relating to each competency area that is to be assessed.  The interviewer will be asking you for specific examples of your past behavior which demonstrate evidence against each competency, and all candidates applying for the same role will be asked the same questions.  Questions often begin with "Tell me about a time when…" or "Give me an example of…" For each question, the interviewer will ask you a question and then follow this up with a series of probing questions to gather all of the information they need for each competency area.

    HOW TO PREPARE FOR A BEHAVIOR-BASED INTERVIEW

    Now that you have some insight into what a behavior-based interview is and how it will be conducted, you can begin to prepare and practice for one.

    Unfortunately, we cannot tell you exactly which behaviors or competencies we are assessing at the interview.  However you should be able to think of situations you have been in that demonstrate to us that you have the qualities we are looking for. Draw on your specific accomplishments and relate them to questions being asked and skills being assessed.

    A useful technique to use when preparing for and answering competency based questions is the ‘S.B.O.’ technique. This acronym acts as a reminder to you as to how to structure your response.

    • Situation – what was the context / situation of the example?
    • Behavior – what was required of you in terms of aims / objectives / challenges? What actions did you take?
    • Outcome – what happened / what was the outcome of your actions?

    You will be asked to provide specific examples with detail.  When using this format it is useful to give the interviewer a little bit of the Situation but the bulk of your example should consist of your Behavior – what you did and said in this situation. It is always a good idea to also think about challenges and problems that you faced and how you overcame them as well as what you learned from your experiences.

    By following this format, you will give the interviewer a good understanding of your experience and behavior.

    TIPS FOR THE INTERVIEW

    • Be yourself - act naturally, the interviewer wants to get to know you.
    • Don't be afraid to take time to collect your thoughts and think of your best example to fit the question before speaking
    • It's OK to ask questions – remember it's a two-way conversation.
    • It's also OK to ask the interviewer to repeat a question, or clarify your understanding of what you are being asked.
    • If you are unsure about whether your example is what the interviewer was looking for, at the end of your response check with the interviewer that you have answered their question.
