At the heart of Veeva are our values: Do the Right Thing, Customer Success, Employee Success, and Speed. We're not just any public company – we made history in 2021 by becoming a public benefit corporation (PBC), legally bound to balancing the interests of customers, employees, society, and investors.

Each year, thousands of Veeva customers, partners, and employees around the world seek to gain job-ready skills, build confidence, and advance their careers.
