Breaking The Mould

By: Celgene UK


Summary of work

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy ‘WeCare’ defines who we are as a company, and how what we do every day benefits the world we live and work in.

Every day, every Celgene employee is committed to demonstrate our value of ‘Passion for the Patient’, but it is easy to limit our thinking and focus on those in our communities close to home.

We are however, a proud part of World Child Cancer’s mission to improve the diagnosis, treatment and care for children in the developing world.

Over 200,000 children develop cancer each year. 80% of those children live in low- or middle-income countries (LMICs) where about 10% will survive, compared to 80% in high income countries.

Our relationship with WCC is about so much more than financial support. It is inspiring, enlightening, humbling and sometimes overwhelming, but we know that we are making a difference to the lives of children with cancer simply not fortunate enough to live in the developed world.

Judges' comments

Celgene produced a fantastic and inspirational SRI initiative which tackled a real need in developing countries. Its implementation potentially involved all employees and was clearly linked to the employee engagement process. The objectives were laudable and the implementation made a big difference to many children's lives.
