We are what we do every day.
More than that, we are the reasons why we do it. What we do, with every test and every trial, is to move drug discovery forward. We shape the future of clinical development with each individual trial, for all the trials that follow. We pursue our goals using the most advanced technologies and highly trained professionals. We pursue them with passion along side clients who are just as committed to what we do, because they know that how well we do it truly matters. It matters not only to our clients, our investors and our bottom line, but also to their customers, who are counting on better medicines to come to market.
We know that what we do helps change people’s lives for the better every single day. We know that in order for clinical development to reach its full potential, our industry needs people who truly care about each and every outcome. And we know that’s the reason people come to work with us. Our employees care about what we do and they care that it’s done better than its been done before. We know people count on us, because that is who we are.
WE ARE PRA.
just isn’t how we do things.
Work is a big part of all of our lives, but it’s not everything. We believe that a key ingredient to being able to provide excellence in everything we do comes from having a strong balance in how we do it.
We all need time away from work with friends and family to maintain our energy and focus, and a little distance often provides invaluable perspective. We also believe in creating balance in the work itself, by encouraging flexible work environments where they make the most sense.
for all of us.
From the moment you start in a new position with PRA, you’re encouraged to grow beyond it. The time and resources we devote to helping our employees develop isn’t an expense, it’s an investment. Supporting your career development, both through in-office opportunities and by tapping into external resources, is not only good for everyone involved, it’s simply the right thing to do. After all, your success is our success, and every new learning and skill you bring to the table betters your team, organization and company.
Those who benefit the most from our career development opportunities are self-starters. People with an entrepreneurial spirit, who are not only self-motivated but also play well on a team, tend to do very well with PRA.
But being self-directed doesn’t mean you won’t find plenty of support and guidance as well. Managers at PRA are always there to support, advise and guide you, not only on what’s best for the company, but also on what future opportunities for you may be.
An individual career development and feedback plan is provided to help empower your development. It can help you to identify the skills you need to achieve your goals, as well as what opportunities are available to obtain those skills. Managers are also there to listen. Discuss your career aspirations. Share what you’re finding works best for you and what doesn’t. We’re on this journey together. Your goals for your career are important to us and we want to help you realize them.
a better way.
We attract employees from all over the world. They come from different cultures and backgrounds, and even different industries. They’ve seen a lot, learned a lot, and are always looking at new ways to help us improve our processes, practices and services.
We’re okay with it. In fact, we encourage it. After all, why hire the best except to help us all be better? We know that the way we do something today isn’t necessarily the way we did it yesterday, and it doesn’t have to be the way we do it tomorrow. Each time we learn better, we do better.
just get better and better.
Your health, your family, your career, your money — the things that matter to you, matter to us. And while we realize that your needs may change over time, your desire to be in a position to meet those needs never will. We keep a close watch on the market to ensure that we’re providing the best benefit options available for our employees. Across our global workforce we strive to deliver competitive programs at the best cost possible in all of our markets, including benefit plans and programs that integrate with governmental and social programs available to employees and their families.
While the programs may vary from country to country and market to market, our commitment to the well-being of our employees, their families, and their futures never does.
If you’d like more information about the specific plans and programs available for employees in your area, the Talent Acquisition or Human Resources team members will be happy to provide it.
you can never be too safe.
In the same way that we work hard to protect the interests and safety of our study participants during clinical trials, we also protect the safety and security of our employees. Whether they’re in one of our global offices or on the road, their safety is something we believe to be our paramount obligation.
Web-based services and insurance coverage are readily accessible to make certain that global health, travel accident and safety services are always available to all employees traveling for business. We want to ensure you’re prepared and protected wherever you may be.
We have programs in place across the globe to make sure our employees always know how much we appreciate all that they do. It might be as spontaneous as a spot bonus from our CEO for a new and creative idea, as casual and personal as a manager luncheon to say thanks, or as formal and established as a recognition program to mark milestone years of service to the company.
Whatever it is and however we can manage to show it, we know that we have our employees to thank for our success and we are truly grateful.
