Welcome to Novo Nordisk in the United States


The Novo Nordisk Way

The Novo Nordisk Way is a set of guiding principles which underpins every decision we make.

It describes who we are, how we work and what we want to achieve, and sets a clear direction for our company and our employees.

Ultimately, it’s a promise we make to each other - and to the millions of patients all over the world who rely on our products to lead full and healthy lives.


Novo Nordisk Way is our way?

In 1923, our Danish founders began a journey to change diabetes. Today, we are thousands of employees across the world with the passion, skills and commitment to continue this journey; not only to prevent, treat and ultimately cure diabetes, but also to improve the lives of those living with other serious chronic conditions:

  • Our ambition is to strengthen our leadership in diabetes
  • Our key contribution is to discover and develop innovative biological medicines and make them accessible to patients throughout the world.
  • We aspire to change hemophilia and other serious chronic conditions where we can make a difference.
  • Growing our business and delivering competitive financial results is what allows us to help patients live better lives, offer an attractive return to our shareholders and contribute to our communities.
  • We never compromise on quality and business ethics.
  • Our business philosophy is one of balancing financial, social and environmental considerations - we call it 'The Triple Bottom Line'.
  • We are open and honest, ambitious and accountable, and treat everyone with respect.
  • We offer opportunities for our people to realize their potential.

Every day, we must make difficult choices, always keeping in mind, what is best for patients, our employees and our shareholders in the long run.

It's our way. It's the Novo Nordisk Way.
