Biocon Ltd, in a recent press report, has stated its achievement of earning the reputation and distinction of being the only Asian Biopharma company to feature among the top biotechnology employers in the world.
The esteemed recognition was bestowed on the company, led by India’s first recognised women entrepreneur in the field Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw by the Science magazine. The achievement underlines the fact about Biocon gaining reputation as the best employers globally, as further stated in a press release issued by the company.
According to the comprehensive 2015 web-based survey of more than 5,700 respondents on 23 different attributes, Biocon has been recognised for three key attributes — ‘Innovative leader in the industry,’ ‘Has loyal employees’ and ‘Is socially responsible’ — and has been positioned at No. 13, it added.
The ranking is a result of a global survey conducted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) through its affiliate Science magazine to determine which companies in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry have the best reputations as employers globally, Biocon said in a release.
Biocon said the top 20 companies with the best reputations as employers were shortlisted from a list of more than 181 global companies.
“At Biocon, we have invested in creating a culture that pursues excellence through learning and adopting global best practices. In doing so, we have successfully earned the reputation of being the most preferred biotech employer in Asia,” Biocon Chairperson and Managing Director Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw said.
