Novo Nordisk named among world’s top places to work

Biotech giant the 25th best multinational workplace

It’s been a fairly solid week for Novo Nordisk in terms of receiving global recognition.

Yesterday, the head of Novo Nordisk, Lars Rebien Sørensen, was named the best-performing CEO in the world by Harvard Business Review. And today the Danish biotech company was named among the world’s best places to work.

Novo Nordisk was listed as the 25th best multinational workplace in the world, according to the global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work.

“Companies the world over would do well to focus on these drivers of workplace greatness, as well as on the trusting relationships that are the foundation of a strong culture,” Great Place to Work wrote.

“That’s not just for the benefit of employees, but for the business benefits that come from a high-trust workplace. A growing mound of evidence from Great Place to Work and other experts shows that a great culture pays off – in areas ranging from higher revenues to lower turnover to better stock market performance to superb customer service.”
