Community

Making a difference together reflects the spirit of our community involvement at Teva.

Giving back to our communities and finding new and innovative ways to do so is a source of pride and motivation for us. It’s a part of our identity.

As a company, we work hard to help strengthen local communities around where we live and work in a positive, impactful and relevant way. It’s a collaborative effort and one that all of our employees can, and do, contribute to.

Our leadership as a socially responsible company is showcased through the community investments we make and the hands-on employee volunteering we do, with a particular emphasis on health, wellness and education.

Health and wellbeing

Health and wellbeing
The main focus of our community relations is health and wellbeing, and we’ve linked up with schools local to our main sites, offering a range of support to both the pupils and staff.

Financial contributions have enabled them to buy a variety of much-needed new equipment, including kit for their gym areas and supplies for their science department. We’ve also engaged with them on a more holistic level and offer all kinds of partnership and mentoring opportunities on an as-needed basis.

Volunteering and fundraising are actively encouraged at Teva, and our employees’ passion and enthusiasm are evident.

Teva employees' raise money for a range of charitable causes, including Macmillan coffee mornings, Christmas Jumper Day for Ada Cole Rescue Centre and Text Santa, toys for the Salvation Army and money for the "Wear it- Beat it" British Heart Foundation campaign. 16 colleagues also took part in the “Le Tour de Yorkshire” cycling event, cycling around 515km over 3 days.

Local and national charity support

We work with charities both at a local and national level, focusing our efforts on those that support patients’ needs in the disease areas we focus on.

We also support the following charities in a range of ways:

  • MS Trust - Provides information for anyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
  • MS Society - Invests in research into multiple sclerosis, and help through information, support and campaigning.
  • Shift MS - Aims to create a positive, enabling community for those with multiple sclerosis
  • MS International Foundation - Supports international cooperation on research into multiple sclerosis, and help through information, support and campaigning.
  • British Lung Foundation - Invests in research into lung conditions, and help through information, support and campaigning.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving

We operate a payroll giving scheme through Workplace Giving UK which enables our employees to donate money every single month to their chosen charities through their salary.

Donating through this scheme means that the charity not only receives the donation, but also the tax that would have been paid on the amount – up to 40% of the initial donation.

Our employees donated over £24,000 through Payroll Giving between 2013 and 2015!

In recognition of these donations, we have been awarded a Silver Quality Mark by the Government, which is great recognition for our employees.

International Health Partners

International Health Partners
Our nominated charity partner is International Health Partners (IHP), which is dedicated to improving access to healthcare and medicines in the developing world.

We provide IHP with facilities to make up doctors’ packs which are used by UK healthcare professionals travelling overseas to take part in short-term medical missions in the developing world. Since 2004, we have also provided the charity with medicines which have reached disaster stricken areas, meaning victims of these disasters get access to medicines that might not otherwise have been available.
