About us

What defines us

Our workplace is ethical, supportive, inclusive, diverse and rewarding. Being independent means we can make choices for the long-term based on our company culture and values, rather than short-term financial commitments. Our ‘bottom-up’ culture encourages our colleagues to be entrepreneurial and help build the business together.

Perhaps the best evidence of this is our response to challenges posed by the pandemic. Our company culture provided firm foundations for open communication and compassionate relationships on which to build a truly supportive response.

We ran an engagement survey in April 2020, focusing on the impact of COVID-19 on our employees. This helped with resource planning – during a period when schools and childcare facilities were closed – and assessed how colleagues were coping with the circumstances and how we could best support them.

We are defined by our people. They're what make our colleagues and clients trust us and want to stay with us.

What inspires us

We help our clients to communicate with healthcare professionals about the evidence supporting their drugs and how they should be used. Our clients have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic and we’ve been there to assist them through the production of special reports. For our employees, it was extremely motivating to see our skills in medical communications being applied to combat the global pandemic.

We went the extra mile to support our colleagues during the pandemic. Here are some highlights:

We continued running our global social committee virtually, hosting virtual events, competitions, clubs and more, including our summer social.

Weekly ‘news blasts’ provided news, tips and resources, with ideas for home schooling, resilience and financial well-being.

In return, our colleagues have continued to go the extra mile for us. To reward their unstinting efforts, we made a one-off thank you payment on top of their usual annual bonus.

Action highlights


The 80%-on-average response rate to our employee surveys is heartening evidence that we engage with our colleagues, listen to their views and take positive action.

In the past year alone, we’ve fully embraced remote and flexible working and have launched a cycle-to-work scheme, season ticket loan and buy/sell holiday scheme – all thanks to our collective employee voice.

We’ve implemented regular communications from the Global Leadership Team, streamlined our recruitment process and ensured our entire learning and development offering can be delivered remotely.

Our colleagues have all faced different challenged during the pandemic, so we have strived to accommodate everyone’s individual circumstances.

We’ve made great strides in the vital areas of equality, diversity and inclusion. We recently ran a listening exercise, and several colleagues are now ‘advocates’ working with us to continuously improve our culture into the future.

Word from the top

When I was introduced to Oxford PharmaGenesis in 2019, it was clear I was joining a special company. I sensed that my own people-focused values aligned with those of the company, and that their nurturing approach was embedded in their long heritage – not just in rhetoric.

There is a genuine sense of warmth and inclusion: after all, relationships matter. We support employee growth and development from day one, which has resulted in a track record of long and highly successful careers.

I knew I could easily build on this employee-led culture, because our colleagues trust that their voices are heard and respected. They see the practical implementation of their ideas in our ongoing improvements, ensuring that we continue to be a great place to work.

I am proud to be part of this exciting journey.
