Our values and culture

Our culture is about not only what we do, but about how we go about doing it.

So having a culture where our values are shared by everyone and those values are demonstrated through how we work is really important to us. Our values and purpose were uncovered by our people and are at the heart of who we are. 

In everything we do, we are guided by our values to deliver on our purpose: improving health, making people feel better.

  • Our purpose is what drives us. It gives meaning to everything we do, and it is the reason we come to work each morning.
  • Our values guide the way we behave, make decisions and treat each other every day. When we act on them, we actively contribute to bringing our purpose to life.

Our values and purpose represent those qualities that make us unique. They guide the way we think, act and make decisions, as we learn to work better together.

Improving health, making people feel better


This is our purpose and our driving force. It gives meaning to everything we do, and it is the reason we come to work each morning. It is about us, the people of Teva, applying our capabilities and skills, as well as our passion and human touch, to improve health and make people feel better.

It is simple and realistic, and yet it is also powerful.

It is what we do, what we have always done, and what we will continue to do.

Our purpose opens for us a new way of looking at people: through health, not only through illness. We, the people of Teva, apply our expertise and skills, as well as our passion and human touch, in order to improve the health of people around the world and make them feel better.

Our Guiding Values

Our values guide the way we behave, make decisions and treat each other every day. When we act on them, we actively contribute to bringing our purpose to life.


We go the extra distance. We love it when we lead and shape the industry. We stay ahead of the game by daring to be different, stretching ourselves and aiming higher. We identify opportunities in unexpected places and act on them to address unmet needs. Leadership happens with and through people. We bring out the best in each other and celebrate shared wins.


We value action. With our “can do” approach, we co-create solutions and achieve goals together. We combine local knowledge with global resources. We work more effectively and tap our joint potential when we align, collaborate and partner with each other.


We are creative problem solvers; imaginative and inventive. We strive to excel and generate value: make things better, faster, more affordable and more accessible. While we are never creative when it comes to compliance with regulations or to the safety and quality of our products, we keep looking for original and better solutions to address people’s existing and emerging needs. This means asking new questions, learning and making new connections in order to provide sustainable value in a differentiated way.


We care. We care about sustainable healthcare for all. We care about the wellbeing of our patients, families and colleagues, as well as the communities we touch and the planet we live on. We strive to be true partners in trust-based relationships. We are attentive and considerate to people on their personal health journey, striving to enable them to take better control of their health.


We are proud to work in a company that is making a difference to people’s lives each and every day. We each take responsibility to work with integrity and honesty, applying the highest ethical and moral standards in all we do. When we go back home and tell our families about our day, we know they can be proud of us, and of Teva.

Diversity for all

We have a distinctive culture, and look for people who share our values, but we have a business that values the difference in all of us too.

People here come from different backgrounds, and take on a wide variety of roles, but they're all working towards the same purpose, and sharing in the same success.

We respect all our employees and we want talented people in our workforce regardless of race, gender, sexuality, age, religion, belief or disability. Our employees come from all walks of life and we view the differences in each of us as a vital asset.

We focus on creating an inclusive organisation where all employees feel engaged and know their work makes an important contribution to our vision of becoming the most essential provider of medicines to the UK. 

It’s our belief that diversity in our people enriches our individual creativity and innovation, and makes good business sense.

Work life balance

We want you to be able to do your best work. And it's important that your work meets not only the needs of the business but your own personal needs too.

Our approach is to support flexible working arrangements, where possible, while ensuring business needs are met.

Having your say

To make sure we carry on getting better at what we do, our employees have the chance to tell us what's working well, and what could be improved.

And there are plenty of ways to be heard, through our Employee Consultation Forums and our face to face quarterly employee briefing sessions.

Not forgetting our annual Your Voice staff survey which gives us a great insight into how our employees feel, and give us clear direction of where we need to improve things so we keep on being a great place to work. 

We want to keep on improving on what we already do, ensuring Teva is a great place to work for years to come.
