The Novo Nordisk Way describes who we are, where we want to go and how we work.
Its origin can be traced back to when the company was founded in the 1920s although at that time we did not have a name for it. Since then our company has developed in a way that our founders couldn't have imagined. Today, we are leaders in our fields, we have become a truly global company and millions of patients all over the world rely on our products every day to ensure their health and well-being. And all along we stayed true to the values that have helped bring us this far.
The Novo Nordisk Way sets direction for and applies to all employees in Novo Nordisk. It is a promise we make to each other - and to our stakeholders outside the company. Each and every employee is responsible for acting in accordance with the Novo Nordisk Way - and to help each other understand what it means in practice.
In 1923, our Danish founders began a journey to change diabetes.
Today, we are thousands of employees across the world with the passion, the skills and the commitment to continue this journey to prevent, treat and ultimately cure diabetes.
Every day, we must make difficult choices, always keeping in mind, what is best for patients, our employees and our shareholders in the long run.
