It is only through their input, ideas and honest feedback that we can learn and leverage the full potential of our company. In Europe we are operating in 13 countries. Because of our rather small size compared to larger pharmaceutical companies, each of our employees can have a huge impact – whether they work in the medical area, sales force, business intelligence or the IT department. This is why everybody at Daiichi Sankyo rolls up their sleeves and gets things done, even if this means that they sometimes have to go beyond their usual duties.
