Oxford PharmaGenesis has been recognized across offices worldwide with an internationally renowned UK Best WorkplacesTM award. The accreditation is thanks to colleagues who rated the leading independent HealthScience communications consultancy as ‘a great place to work’ in the Great Place to Work® 2021 survey.

The survey received an impressive 80% response rate from our colleagues worldwide, with 91% of respondents saying that “Taking everything into account, I would say this is a great place to work”. Oxford PharmaGenesis scored particularly highly for Trust, Values and Leadership Effectiveness.

Considered a ‘gold standard’ of employer awards, Great Place to Work® surveys are based solely on the views of employees. Operating in over 50 countries, its data-driven methodology gains insights from around 10 000 organizations worldwide to benchmark performance and help to improve employee engagement. The survey assesses both the employee experience and the leadership and HR practices that create the organization’s workplace culture.

This is the first year that Oxford PharmaGenesis has gained global recognition, with survey respondents hailing from our offices worldwide. The company has previously won Best WorkplaceTM awards in the UK in 2019 and in the USA repeatedly from 2017. The UK office also earned a Best Workplace for WomenTM award in the UK in 2019, and an Excellence in Wellbeing award in 2018 and 2021.

“COVID-19 has affected employee welfare in organizations worldwide,” said Chris Winchester, CEO of Oxford PharmaGenesis. “We as a company have gone out of our way to support our people through the pandemic as they juggle challenges at work and at home.

“In this dynamic, competitive environment, it’s important not to lose sight of our people. We wanted to know how we were doing in our colleagues’ eyes, and benchmark ourselves against peers to confirm that we are employer of choice in our sector.

This accreditation reinforces our reputation as one of the most attractive, engaging and rewarding employers – not just in HealthScience Communications, but across all sectors in the UK and USA.”

Sharon Frost, Global HR Director of Oxford PharmaGenesis said:

“This is a testament to our culture, strong values, strategic leadership and more. But it doesn’t mean we can rest on laurels. We continue to listen to colleagues and focus on their development to ensure that this is a company of which we can all be proud.”

Despite the pandemic, Oxford PharmaGenesis experienced impressive growth over 2020, recruiting more than 100 new colleagues and opening a regional office in Melbourne, Australia. It also broadened its innovative capabilities and expertise through an enhanced informatics and data science practice.
