Employee Benefits


At Novo Nordisk, our passion for people begins with meeting the needs of our own diverse team. More than just attracting and retaining the best minds in the business, we empower our employees to change their own lives – to reach their goals both professionally and personally. To that end, we strive to continually improve our employee benefits.

Although exact benefits offered may vary slightly based on which part of the organization you will be working in, all parts of the company offer similar benefits, such as:

  • Competitive base pay and bonus
  • Comprehensive health benefits
  • A generous 8-9% company contribution to retirement accounts
  • A generous vacation policy
