We have an extensive record of creating a working environment that empowers employees to balance professional and personal life responsibilities. For our employees, family-friendly work schedules and benefits are about lower stress levels, better health, and enabling a stronger focus when at work – all leading to enhanced engagement and innovation.
For our efforts, DiversityInc. has named Lilly the Top Company for Working Families in 2012. The diversity assessment firm honors a select group of top companies each year for leadership and innovative solutions that demonstrate the next wave of diversity-management success.
We were honored for being a model of workplace flexibility for employees. As John Lechleiter, chairman, president and CEO states: “Lilly recognizes the critical importance of work-life integration tools to address the diverse needs, expectations, lifestyles and work styles of employees, allowing them to be the most effective.”
Globally, Lilly offers a number of programs, varying by location, to assist employees in maintaining work-life flexibility. These include flexible work arrangements, personal leaves, on-site health services/fitness centers as well as on-site childcare, credit unions, dry cleaners, farmers market and family support programs.
