Local customer facing role driving healthcare system innovation
Roche is a company with a 125 year history and our ongoing success is based on our strong focus on delivering meaningful value for our customers and society, and we will need to evolve our offering and approach in order to do so.
In response to the increasingly volatile world we live in, Roche Pharma International began a wide scale transformation process - changing our ways of working to be more agile, less hierarchical, highly collaborative. Now we take the next STEP in our journey focusing on how we can deliver the greatest value and make a meaningful difference to our customers, patients and society.
