Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine Name Astellas One of the 2022 Best Workplaces in BioPharma™, Ranking #5

Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have honored Astellas as one of the 2022 Best Workplaces in BioPharma™. This is Astellas’ first time being named to this prestigious list, coming in at fifth place.  

The Best Workplaces in BioPharma list is a highly competitive award based on analysis of survey responses from over 36,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in the biopharma industry.

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they create a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is. Our ranking makes it evident that Astellas employees feel valued and appreciated.

“It is a great achievement to be included on this list for the first time,” said Mark Reisenauer, president, Astellas US. “Being recognized as a top biopharma company to work for in the U.S. is a true testament to the inclusive, innovative and empowering culture that our employees contribute to every day. I am energized by the great work we deliver and appreciate everything our employees have done to earn this incredible honor.”

Over the past year, our workplace has been challenged with unforeseen and difficult world events affecting our industry, our employees and our patients. However, we are pleased that our team considers Astellas an engaging and rewarding place to work as we remain focused on ensuring employees are safe, respected and heard.

Astellas is also proud to support seven active Employee Impact Groups (EIGs) that help strengthen our culture and provide support and mentorship to all employees. The EIGs are focused on fostering a supportive and inclusive environment where all employees can grow, drive health equity and create stronger communities. You can read more about the compelling work from our EIGs here.

At Astellas, feedback is important to us and through these surveys, we gain valuable insights from our growing workforce on ways we can continue to show up for our employees and be a great place to work for all. We are honored to celebrate our employees’ unwavering commitment to our vision to turn innovative science into VALUE for patients.
