Our Values

With Integrity, Courage and Passion... We are Roche!

Healthcare is undergoing tremendous changes but our vision is clear. We are doing now what patients need next. From developing diagnostics and treatments, to harnessing the power of data to shape innovations of the future, we are an integrated healthcare company with a culture of integrity, courage and passion. 

For over 125 years, we’ve been developing diagnostics and medicines for a wide range of chronic and life threatening health conditions that continue to revolutionise healthcare. Being a family-owned company allows us to focus on long-lasting investments, take greater risks and explore innovative new ways to improve people’s health around the world. 

Our Values

Working for Roche means more than just having a job. To us, it means a daily obligation to maintain our personal integrity, think boldly and be passionately committed to improving medicine.

Our three Roche values are central to how we want to behave as individuals, and collectively as an organisation. We don’t just pay them lip service: they are binding for everyone who works for Roche in more than 100 countries throughout the world.

  • Integrity: We are consistently open, honest, ethical and genuine.

  • Courage: We are entrepreneurial and thus take risks, reach beyond boundaries and experiment.

  • Passion: We use our drive and commitment to energise, engage and inspire others.

At Roche, we foster a culture of debate, mutual respect, and diversity. We encourage everyone to be open to discussing and considering new ideas.  

Our values are the core of our culture

In our goal to improve patients’ lives we are passionate, we take risks and we live by high standards of integrity.

Just as we expect it from ourselves and colleagues, society expects that we live by high standards of integrity.

Our business and strategy takes us often into uncharted territory. This also means that we must have the courage to take appropriate risks in order to succeed.

Above all, it is our passion to improve patients’ lives that is our ultimate driver. It is this passion that fuels our determination and enables us to persevere, often over many years.

To bring our culture to live, our values are supported and complemented by the following elements:

Clear purpose - Doing now what patients need next.

Diversity of talent - We defined long-term Group diversity goals to achieve diversity in leadership, which mirrors our workforce.

Diversity of approaches -  We have decentralized structures with multiple autonomous innovation centers across the Group; in addition we partner with leading third parties.

Leadership Excellence - Our leadership commitments describe the behaviors expected of all leaders to help us achieve our ambitions. Furthermore, we foster a mindset for every employee to demonstrate leadership by being authentic, self-aware, empathetic and taking a holistic view.

People-oriented philosophy - We are collaborative, supportive, and humble. We believe in an inclusive and diverse workplace where people feel valued and respected and where we all can develop to our full potential and thrive. 

Organisational agility - We promote agility - the balance between speed, stability and flexibility - which enables people to respond to changes in the environment in a fast and flexible manner, while remaining deeply rooted in the stable fundamentals of our purpose and values.

Long-term sustainable thinking - 125 years of history, family owned, innovative.

Ability to challenge our paradigms - Our business landscape is continuously changing at an ever-increasing pace. This calls for new ways of working, resilience as well as curiosity for the unknown. By working closely together we can make even more of a difference for patients and society. To this end, we have defined eight operating principles which guide how we work together in different parts of our organization.

Our operating principles:

Put patients first: “I always act as if patients I know are in the room and do what's best for them.”

Follow the science: “I seek answers through experiments, data and debate, and act on facts.”

Act as one team: “I care, collaborate and commit without boundaries, and trust others to do their part.”

Embrace differences: “I seek diverse perspectives, invite opposing views, and challenge myself and others.”

Accelerate learning: “I push to learn new things even if difficult, and openly share my successes and failures.”

Simplify radically: “I eliminate complexity, reuse with pride, and accomplish more with less.”

Make impact now: “I take accountability to do what's right, deliver value fast, and don't wait for certainty.”

Think long term: “I choose actions today that benefit future generations.”
