Corporate Philosophy

Our corporate philosophy tells the story of Takeda — who we are, what we do, how we do it, and why it matters. It reminds us how together, we can achieve “better health for people, brighter future for the world”.

We connect to our history and Japanese heritage through everything we do today, to bring our purpose, values, vision, and imperatives to life.


Better Health for People, Brighter Future for the World.


Discover and deliver life-transforming treatments, guided by our commitment to patients, our people and the planet.


We are guided by our values of Takeda-ism, which incorporate Integrity, Fairness, Honesty and Perseverance, with Integrity at the core. They are brought to life through actions based on Patient-Trust-Reputation-Business, in that order.

Hirameki: Garden of Inspiration

We’ve embodied our corporate philosophy in the Hirameki: Garden of Inspiration. Inspired by the Takeda Garden for Medicinal Plant Conservation in Kyoto, Japan, employees can begin their journey at the Japanese cherry blossom tree, which represents our proud history and heritage and continue through numerous destinations that symbolize elements of our culture. Much like our Corporate Philosophy, the Hirameki Garden reflects our growth, diversity, transformation and foundation. Employees chart their own path within the garden to shape their contributions in helping us achieve our vision.
