Inclusion and diversity
We seek, value and draw on the differing knowledge, perspectives, experiences and styles resident in the larger community.
We aim to create a working environment where all employees feel included, respected and valued for the unique qualities they bring, and are empowered to contribute to their full potential.
GSK defines inclusion as the act of engaging and valuing all people and diversity as the sum total of the characteristics and experiences that make each person unique. Put simply, if diversity is about getting a mix, inclusion is about how to make the mix work.
Our inclusion and diversity roadmap is informed by extensive listening exercises within the organisation and external benchmarking. Measurement indices for impact assessment of I&D interventions are institutionalised, supported by a communications plan to create an aligned employer brand that allows us to attract the best diverse talent pool. Our Women's Leadership Initiative is driven towards creating a culture that helps us bring diverse perspectives, accelerate capabilities, build talent pool and pave way to our growth.- Meenakshi Priyam, EVP - Human Resources & HRBL - CEP
I have often been advised by people outside my company to change my sales role since they assume it must be very challenging for me. My company or my colleagues however never doubt or advise me such because they can see my achievements. My work at GSK has helped me to remain focused on performance since all decisions are based on merits and not on one's physical abilities.- Anil Rohilla, Sales Executive - Biologicals
