People Performance Process
Our People Performance Process (3P) sets a global standard for performance management in Novo Nordisk. As an integrated part of the Novo Nordisk Way of Management, it ensures alignment of individual goals with our business goals to drive results and meet customer needs. With clear and measurable goals, everyone knows what is expected of them and it is easier to assess and reward performance and to spot and develop talent.
Every year, thousands of Novo Nordisk employees volunteer for a wide variety of creative and ambitious activities that show social responsibility, help the local environment, or both. From carrying out free screenings for diabetes to keeping medical supply lines open in regions of conflict, our colleagues bring the unique values of Novo Nordisk to a wider audience and help raise awareness about what life is like for people with chronic conditions, their families and the communities that support them.
In the early spring of 1923, the first patients were treated with insulin produced by the founders of Novo Nordisk. We have come a long way since then. Breakthroughs such as NovoPen®, NovoSeven® and GLP-1 therapieshave improved the lives of millions of people with diabetes, haemophilia and growth disorders all over the world – and helped to define Novo Nordisk as a world leader in therapeutic proteins.
To ensure we can continue helping people affected by chronic conditions, our business needs to grow both profitably and responsibly. We call this approach the Triple Bottom Line. It means that Novo Nordisk is committed to considering the financial, social and environmental impact of every decision as we work to create value for individuals, society and investors.
