The impact of your work on patients' life as a daily driver
Seeing the purpose of their work at Roche Diagnostics is one of the key motivators. Having an impact on patients’ life through the job is a real driver for their daily challenges as a leader. As Ann stated: "Diagnostics is so important in patients' life. Understanding this significance gives oneself so much energy and motivation!"
The place to Work
Energy & inspiration from the team
Instead of having one role model, the three leaders are mostly inspired by the people and the teams around them. For the daily challenges at work, they are convinced to receive most of the positive energy from the work you love and in the exchange with peers and employees at Roche. Therefore the support of the environment has always been key to them and their career.
Being a team member - not a female team member
Silke took the challenge of often being the only woman in the team and also the youngest as something positive. Inclusion and diversity is not just a nice statement at Roche, but is lived day in and out. At Roche everyone contributes as an equal team member. Therefore all three agreed, that a woman should not make “being a woman” a topic to herself.
