At Novo Nordisk, we believe in change. We are parents, colleagues, neighbors, and friends — people living with the complexities of serious diseases. And we believe in the combination of science and soul to help nurture each other back to good health.
For almost 100 years, we have been driving change to defeat diabetes, which has given us the experience and capability to help defeat other serious chronic diseases, including obesity, hemophilia and growth hormone disorders.
We work for a future where lives are not limited—and we do so by pioneering scientific breakthroughs, expanding access to our medicines and working to prevent and ultimately cure the diseases we treat.
From our labs to our factory floors, we are discovering and developing innovative biological medicines and making them accessible to patients who need them.

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 drive change to defeat diabetes and other serious chronic diseases.
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.

We are a proud life science company united by a common job to discover better treatments for people living with a serious chronic disease.
Our industry is dynamic. And the scientific understanding of the diseases we treat and the people living with them, improves every day. This is a constant reminder that what got us to where we are today is not necessarily what will make us successful in the future.
As an employer, we recognize the need to embrace experimentation and strive for diversity and inclusion to help make better decisions by ensuring that multiple perspectives are considered.
Together, we’re life changing.
