Our Workplace


It is often said that you can judge a company by how it treats its employees.

We’re proud to be recognized year over year as one of the best places to work. It’s a legacy instilled by the Lilly family that lives on today. Our values of integrity, excellence and respect for people remain the hallmarks of our company and drive us in fulfilling our mission: to make life better for people around the world.



We welcome and encourage a diverse, multicultural workforce that is reflective of the patients we serve and are committed to upholding the principles of nondiscrimination. Additionally, we promote a culture of health and safety and are working hard to reduce the injury rates across our company.

Scientific advances often occur when good ideas are combined across disciplines to become great ideas. The more problem solvers—especially those who may look at a situation from a different perspective—we can bring together, the more unique our ideas will be. Diversity of thoughts and expertise help our scientists and other professionals solve problems and encourage innovation.

Creating an environment where our employees are able to bring their whole selves to work is important for an innovation-driven company like ours. When employees feel they belong, they’re free to focus on what truly matters: people who need our medicines and services.
