Rolling out vaccines, recognising talent
Over the past 12 months, nearly everyone in the world will have heard the name of AstraZeneca. The pharmaceutical company’s profile rose rapidly during the pandemic, as the Covid-19 vaccine it developed with Oxford University was rolled out in more than 170 countries.
“Our whole purpose is to make sure that we bring life-changing medicines to patients across the world. And we do this by driving scientific leadership, but also by creating a great place to work, where people can collaborate and innovate across the whole organisation,” said Claire Whieldon, AstraZeneca’s global rewards programme director.
To achieve this, AstraZeneca needed a consistent, global programme to encourage peer-to-peer celebration. So, together with Workhuman, it developed CatAlyZe – a simple platform that employees access via their computer or mobile phone to nominate colleagues for great work or behaviour.
