We know that to become the most rewarding company to work for we need to cultivate an environment in which every team member is encouraged and equipped to perform at their personal best. This is why we continually strive to foster a culture that reflects values that are core to our unique work, and illustrates our daily commitment to people living with rare and devastating diseases, our Guiding Star.

Giving Back

Alexion embraces the communities in which we operate. To help tackle pressing social needs in our communities, we support non-profit organizations with monetary grants and harness the power of our global workforce for a Global Day of Service, during which we work with charitable organizations around the world.


Inclusion & Diversity

Inclusion and diversity (I&D) fosters continuous innovation, constant learning, and propels our growth as individuals and for our company. That is why we aim to create an inclusive workplace and a workforce that reflects our communities and the patients we serve. We are strengthened by a diverse workforce; one that is empowered to challenge conventional thinking. We recognize that a team is most effective when it is made up of people who think differently from one another, in an environment where different views and perspectives are welcomed and valued. By embedding inclusive behaviors through our shared Values, we strive to create an equitable environment where everyone can thrive.
