In a year of challenging firsts for many in our country - including life during a pandemic - it’s nice to be able to share some good news.  Novo Nordisk Inc. has again been named to Working Mother Magazine’s 2020 Best Companies list for the sixth time.  Additionally, this year marks our first time being on their second annual Best Companies for Dads List.

Nicole Roberson, Associate Manager, Sample Operations, has been selected as Novo Nordisk Inc.’s 2020 Working Mother of the Year, and Gary Ault, Director, Data & Analytics, is our inaugural Working Dad!

Like most parents across the country, Nicole and Gary faced the challenges of adapting to a new normal due to COVID-19 – including working remotely, helping their children adjust to virtual schooling, and dealing with all the added stressors happening in the world today while maintaining balance.

Throughout it all, Nicole’s colleagues shared how she worked tirelessly to ensure that reps and health care professionals had what they needed to transition to a virtual sample environment. Gary was nominated for his leadership, kindness, dedication to his team and stakeholders, and willingness to always lend a hand.

In this video, Nicole and Gary share their thoughts, and some encouragement, for parents who have felt challenged throughout 2020:
