Human Resources

Integrity, Excellence and Respect for People. These are long-established core values that drive behaviors and decisions throughout Lilly. These values also serve as a foundation for our HR practices.

Your work will help provide answers that matter to the patient—whether it’s helping to restructure parts of our organization, working on how we can better develop our leadership talent, or assisting supervisors and employees through work-related challenges.

Our MBA human resource internship program is our primary method of recruiting full-time HR leadership talent. During your 10-week internship, you’ll learn about how HR practices play a key part in shaping our business. You’ll also work through real human resource challenges that will expand your skill sets.

Lilly is dedicated to developing our people. In addition to participating in the Lilly Leadership Development Program (LLDP), you will move through several assignments as a full-time employee to learn different parts of our business in greater depth and build cross-functional relationships, critical to your future leadership success.
