Human Resources: Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) Australia has joined other pharma and medtech companies in being recognised as a Great Place to Work 2022, showcasing its outstanding workplace culture and commitment to its employees.

“This accreditation is a testament to our people and the culture we champion here at BMS Australia,” said Neil MacGregor, Managing Director at BMS Australia.

“We wouldn’t be able to achieve this result without our employees and the innovation, diversity and passion they bring to our workplace. Proud is a word that captures this moment.”

This certification is a direct result of how employees themselves rated the Company on core cultural areas including credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

BMS Australia employees’ evaluation of their workplace revealed key insights across these areas. The highest results were camaraderie, which measured the employees’ sense of enjoyment in the workplace, the freedom to express themselves, their sense of belonging and community. This was followed closely by pride, where the results demonstrated the positive way employees regard their jobs, team and the Company in their drive to serve patients.

“While today is a milestone and a pause for celebration, our efforts don’t stop here. We’ll continue to listen to our people, improve and implement changes based on feedback. Our priority is to evolve, grow with our people and ensure everyone at our Company experiences a positive and inclusive workplace,” said Neil.

Lisa Johnston, HR Director, BMS Australia, said “BMS’ global mission is to discover, develop and deliver innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases. This core mission and commitment to our patients permeates throughout our Company, uniting our people with a shared meaning and purpose. This acts as the foundation of our community that drives our passionate culture.”

Key results from the 2022 Great Place to Work survey of BMS Australia employees highlighted people felt they are treated fairly regardless of sexual orientation (98%), race (97%) or gender (94%). 94% of employees felt a sense of pride when looking at what BMS Australia accomplished and 93% said they were proud to tell people they work at the organisation. This reflects BMS’ powerhouse of diversity and inclusion initiatives, most notably its People & Business Resource Groups and Reconciliation Action Plan.

These initiatives foster a culture of inclusion and understanding, strong employee engagement, and higher levels of productivity by encouraging employees to bring their authentic selves to work and harness their diverse perspectives to contribute to business objectives.

“BMS Australia’s certification as a Great Place to Work, is even more impressive in the context of the world navigating the ongoing challenges of a global pandemic and new norms. It speaks to the spirited culture and drive of employees at our organisation,” added Neil MacGregor.
