As a company that creates innovative human therapeutics, we are committed to providing resources and facilities for staff to pursue healthy lifestyles. Peer reinforcement is also integral to the success of Amgen wellness programs.
Staff are rewarded for their participation in wellness programs. We offer healthy eating options at our sites across Europe and hold many wellness and fitness-oriented events throughout the year.
We know that the working environment is important to good health. Wellness at Amgen, in collaboration with the Occupational Health and Ergonomics departments, are supporting Amgen’s development of revolutionary work environments that promote active working and staff well-being. The variety of spaces in these environments inspire staff to get up and move throughout the day. Ergonomic equipment, such as sit-stand desk options, are available to assist with work safety, movement and comfort.
In addition, these buildings and work spaces provide access to abundant natural light and a choice of flexible work areas that fit the multiple kinds of work staff perform whether they are in an office or a lab.
Occupational health programs support staff members on the job wherever their work takes them. In addition to managing work-related conditions, travel consultations are provided to prepare staff for health and safety risks while traveling. Flu shots and other vaccination services, on-site health screenings, and ergonomic assessments are all part of Amgen's occupational health offerings.
During the current COVID-19 crisis, Amgen has implemented additional programmes across Europe to help support its staff. Examples include:
To help Amgen staff achieve work-life balance, Amgen offers flexible work schedules, telecommuting, remote work and part-time work.
