Our Commitment to People

Why It Matters

People join Takeda because they share our purpose of bringing Better health for people, brighter future for the world. To continuously bring our purpose to life, we must attract, develop and retain diverse people who are the best at what they do. Our colleagues, in about 80 countries around the world, expect and deserve exceptional experiences and opportunities to pursue their own ambitions. An inclusive, safe and empowering work environment, rooted in our commitment to health and well-being, is critical for our colleagues to thrive, grow and share in realizing Takeda’s vision.

Our colleagues bring a rich mix of experiences, backgrounds and perspectives. This diversity is a core strength of ours. It also presents an opportunity as we aim to balance globally consistent opportunities and programs with flexibility that allows for local context and customization. We strive for people programs that encourage a mindset of lifelong learning, and personal and professional growth. Our current reality and COVID-19 working environments have presented challenges and new paradigms, but we have not wavered in our commitment to developing our people. Through our people programs and development experiences, we continue to build a highly engaged workforce and a strong Takeda culture, firmly rooted in our values of Integrity, Fairness, Honesty and Perseverance, which are deeply ingrained in our culture and ways of working. These values are brought to life through actions based on Patient-Trust-Reputation-Business, always in that order. View further details on how we make ethical decisions.
