Pfizer is removing needless complexity by reducing the time we spend in meetings, managing emails and navigating unproductive processes and practices, so we have time to focus on meaningful work in support of our purpose.
We’ve introduced meeting guidance, developed an app that tracks meeting time and provides feedback on meeting quality, and are rolling out Outlook training and system changes to support our new way of working.
“Using these tools to simplify our processes and spend less time on unproductive emails and meetings can help us create room for meaningful work and make time to focus on what really matters: Breakthroughs that change patients’ lives,” says Dr. Albert Bourla, Chairman and CEO, Pfizer.
Human Resources simplified many of its own processes as well, including an enhanced job posting process, a new candidate care bot on our career site to improve candidate experience, the introduction of automated resume screening, and improved interview processes and guidance.
Additional work is underway on a reimagined onboarding process for all colleagues.
