What Culture Means at Pfizer

"To be successful, the first thing a business must get right is its culture. Colleagues must have a deep connection to what they do, they must share a common set of values about how they do that work, and they must be empowered. Our colleagues are passionate about their ability to impact the lives of patients. It's this passion, underpinned by our OWNIT! culture, that brings us together and will drive our success in the year ahead."
Albert Bourla Chief Executive Officer
"I believe in the power of Pfizer people, and in the strength of our OWNIT! Culture. Our colleagues' compassion and dedication to patients and our Purpose was evident in all they accomplished this year, and our culture inspires their vision and nurtured their talent.
