Novartis, company culture and COVID-19: the pharmaphorum podcast

Novartis’ Steven Baert joined the pharmaphorum podcast for episode 22 to discuss how COVID-19 will change the face of company culture, now and in the future.

We also looked at how Novartis’ own operations had to change in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the considerable challenges that presented him as its chief people and organisation officer.

It’s a role that sees him responsible for the physical and mental wellbeing of 130,000 employees around the world, huge numbers of which had to rapidly transition to new ways of remote working.

Steven also talked about how his company’s culture has already changed in response to COVID-19 and what he thinks the virus means for pharma’s future working practices.
