Our Values and behaviours
How we enable our people to make a difference.
At AstraZeneca we are driven by our purpose to push the boundaries of science and deliver life-changing medicines.
Within the infinite opportunities of What Science Can Do, our Values and behaviours guide and inspire us to make a difference to patients and society.
Our Values were created by all of us. Our first ever online global crowdsourcing
event called Culture Jam in 2014 got over 20,000 responses.
We used that conversation to shape and agree our five Values. They determine
how we work together and the behaviours that are integral to our drive for success.
Our Values guide our decision making, define our beliefs and foster
a strong AstraZeneca culture.
Our behaviours were defined collaboratively as part of planning the next phase
of our journey. Together, we thought about the way we work and what makes
us successful at AstraZeneca.
Our behaviours align to our Values and are designed to be applicable to
everyone in our company – across every role and geography.
How we bring these to life
At AstraZeneca, we celebrate people who live and breathe our Values and behaviours. These are some of their stories.
