"Our job is to improve people’s lives by bringing medicines to the market on time,” Bart explains. “The production of medicines can’t just stop, because many patients rely on them – and us."
No wonder MSD’s mission statement is ‘we improve lives’, which doesn’t just apply to the patients, but to its employees as well. Bart: “We invest heavily in training and keeping our people engaged. One example of this are the daily briefings during which we make sure everything is running smoothly, people can come up with new ideas or report potential issues. This way, we make sure everyone is heard.”
