Our culture belongs to the brave and the curious. At Chiesi we focus on finding innovative solutions and embracing new challenges. Every choice we make is driven by the will to generate a positive impact both on our community and our planet.
Chiesi Austria is part of the Chiesi Pharmaceuticals GmbH with headquarters in Vienna and belongs to the internationally successful private enterprise Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A. based in Italy, which consistently invests in research and development. The cornerstones of our success consist of innovative as well as tried and tested medicinal products, a competent, conscientious team, and an excellent working atmosphere.
We offer our employees an attractive work environment with numerous opportunities for professional and personal development. It is the people that make a company what it is. Our team stands out thanks to its high level of qualification, personal commitment and identification with the company values.
At Chiesi Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) is part of our culture: as a Benefit company and a certified B Corp, we aim to further enhance an inclusive and open approach in our daily actions, ensuring the well-being of our people, openness to others, a sense of welcome and thus improving individual and team performance.
Ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, age, physical abilities, religion, political views, lifestyle, and other invisible diversities represent the set of personal characteristics that make each individual unique. In Chiesi we want to give value to all these differences, so that everyone can express the best of themselves.
In June 2020, Chiesi Pharmaceuticals GmbH signed the Austrian Charter of Diversity ("Charta der Vielfalt") and became part of an international initiative to promote diversity in businesses and institutions. The Charter of Diversity pursues the goal of recognition, appreciation and inclusion of all members of society.
With this in mind, Chiesi is reinforcing its commitment to this approach in 2021 through the Global D&I Policy, a document adopted by the entire Group, which aims to explain the values and behaviours that the Company promotes and adopts in order to create an inclusive environment.
The policy is indeed encouraging a culture based on the acceptance and the inclusiveness, the respect for all the differences, the creation of development opportunities for all our people based on their merit and their talents, the promotion of an inclusive leadership.
We are particularly proud that we received the "Great Place to Work" certification for the first time in 2020, and at the same time we are among the "Best Workplaces in Austria".
In 2022, we were again honored at the Great Place To Work Austria awards ceremony. Chiesi Austria ranked 3rd in Austria's Best Workplaces™ 2022 in the category "Small" and received the special award for "Environmental Sustainability". The winners of the special award were selected by a jury of experts based on the criteria of sustainable commitment, sustainability in corporate culture, employee involvement and major impact for a better world.
We are a success-oriented, dynamically growing company that places its employees at the centre of its activities. Respectful and trusting cooperation, genuine team spirit, diversity and fun at work are particularly important to us.
