For more than 170 years, Pfizer has continuously worked to make a difference by delivering innovative therapies that improve the lives of our patients. By building a talented community of colleagues that aligns with our patient-focused purpose and core values, Pfizer has improved global health and impacted more than 1 billion patients around the world.

One of our primary goals is to be as diverse as the patients and communities we serve, which is why we continue to surround ourselves with colleagues of diverse backgrounds and abilities who can contribute unique viewpoints and perspectives to all aspects of our business. Diverse teams are more collaborative, more balanced, and more accepting of difference, promoting a culture that encourages our people to bring their most authentic selves to work every day. Pfizer consistently strives to create an inclusive environment where every colleague feels seen, heard, and cared for.

In honor of our commitment to create breakthroughs that change patients’ lives, Pfizer is also revolutionizing and evolving how colleagues work today. This year, Pfizer launched a new initiative that we call Log In For Your Day where a majority of colleagues can arrange with their manager to work remotely two to three days a week while still maintaining the ability to collaborate regularly in person at our sites. This flexible working model blends the best of remote work and on-site collaboration to drive greater flexibility, support work-life balance, and promote a vibrant, agile, and innovative culture.
