Competent and contented staff constitutes the key success factor for Oriola-KD. Continuous development of competence and good personnel management are therefore particularly important. Oriola-KD wishes to create an environment for its personnel in which working towards common targets can be performed safely and efficiently.
The pharmaceutical sector is a strictly regulated industry which sets special demands on its personnel as well. Oriola-KD as a company and its staff have to comply with the applicable legislation, regulations and standards in its countries of operation, while at the same time pursuing the Group’s own targets and quality standards. Oriola-KD’s employees are provided with orientation and training in working with pharmaceuticals. The contents and scope of the training are defined in individual job descriptions.
The personnel’s activities are guided by Oriola-KD’s code of ethics and the Group’s values that were defined at the end of 2010. Oriola-KD monitors compliance with the code of ethics by its staff while seeking to promote the same principles among its partners and suppliers. The Group’s values are as follows: we are open, we take initiative, we take responsibility and we work together. The aim of the values is to guide the way people work, and support the company’s mission and vision and the achievement of strategic targets.
Procurement principles, subcontractor selection and approval processes are important for Oriola-KD, as it wants to be a responsible and reliable company. The significance of responsibility will further increase with the growth in Oriola-KD’s own brand selections in the consumer market.
