Regionally, it has been recognized as a Top Employer across ASEAN, Korea, Australia, and New Zealand (ASKAN).

The certification highlights the company's commitment to prioritizing mental health for employees, in addition to nurturing talents to instil a changemaker mindset.

Boehringer Ingelheim's employer offerings do particularly stand out in the dimensions of wellbeing, work environment, as well as rewards and recognition. The results reflect the company's holistic employee healthcare and wellbeing approach that, beyond its emphasis on mental health, integrates concepts of physical, social and financial health.

This includes a work environment of physical and emotional security, an inclusive way of working together creating a sense of belonging, mental health awareness initiatives and manager trainings, focus on work-life-balance, opportunities for volunteering, and competitive pay and benefits.

In Thailand, Boehringer Ingelheim has won the award for five years running and this year has been certified among the top three employers in the local market. Our focus on employee well-being, engagement and our "Sustainable Development - For Generations" framework includes key initiatives such as volunteering and donating around 200,000 THB to the Handicapped Animal Foundation, supporting 124 children in Children's Village School Moo Baan Dek in Kanchanaburi province to have better opportunities to develop their health and education, and planting 120 mangrove trees and cleaning up 64.5 Kilograms of marine waste at the Bangpu Nature Education Center in Samut Prakan province.

"Being certified by the Top Employer Institute means a lot to us. This certification reflects our commitment towards our employees' well-being, development, and growth. I believe that empowering our teams and continuing to invest in a culture of diversity and inclusion, fostering innovation through cross-functional collaboration allows us to deliver our purpose of transforming lives through generations in Thailand, " said Rodrigo Lau, General Manager / Head of Human Pharma, Boehringer Ingelheim Thailand.

Nurturing talent and instilling a growth mindset is driven throughout the organisations' key employee programmes with the aim to support broader skill sets development and create a fulfilling work environment. Some of these programmes include the Regional Talent Move programme which aims to build agility and resilience by allowing employees to take on a stretch assignment in a different country for up to six months to work on a project or business problem, and the B-effect project that is run in partnership with Ashoka, an international network focused on social entrepreneurship and teaches employees to create positive change and innovation by developing a change maker mindset using a six step process.

"We constantly challenge ourselves to raise the bar of our people's well-being and consistently invest in developing their skills and the value they can bring to the organisation and society.  By doing so, our people are equipped with leadership and entrepreneurial skills to improve outcomes for patients and animals," said David Seres, Human Resources Director, ASKAN, Boehringer Ingelheim.

Boehringer Ingelheim has stepped up its commitment towards sustainability within Asia Pacific by launching initiatives such as Making More Health that enable employees to reach their full potential and impact on health and societal challenges. While partnering with the Global Alliance for Rabies Control (GARC), many employees have participated in animal vaccination campaigns to help control and prevent the spread of rabies in the region, making an impact on animal health. In addition, employees' general well being and growth mindset are nurtured through a variety of learning and training experiences, regular team discussions, employee assistance and stress relief programs, family days and disease awareness talks.
