At Biogen, our mission is clear: we are pioneers in neuroscience. Since our founding in 1978 as one of the world’s first global biotechnology companies, Biogen has led innovative scientific research with the goal over the last decade to defeat devastating neurological diseases.
We believe that no other disease area holds as much need or as much promise for medical breakthroughs as neuroscience. Our focus on neuroscience, our deep scientific expertise and our courage to take risks make us leaders in the research and development of medicines to transform neuroscience to benefit society.
We came to Biogen to solve the unsolvable. We stay to create new possibilities and grow together. We work fearlessly and go beyond because we care deeply about making a difference and changing lives.

Prioritizing Health and Well-Being During the Pandemic
2020 was an extremely difficult year, and all of us at Biogen rallied together to support our patients, colleagues and communities. As a company that cares deeply about employee well-being, Biogen rapidly expanded health and safety measures ensuring people required to work on-site had access to personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks and gloves, sanitizers and safe supplies, and that effective virus-control protocols were in place, always following the latest science. We also allocated $15 million in emergency relief and care to support our people and their loved ones in navigating unprecedented challenges.

Delivering a culture of data democratization to impact Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
In 2020 Biogen launched a new effort to give HR professionals and business leaders greater access to workforce data. Biogen’s People Analytics Dashboard provides metrics to drive transparency and accountability with Biogen’s talent priorities. These insights are an important step toward understanding gaps and implementing solutions while maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of our employees.
Our corporate culture is guided by our credo of Caring Deeply, Working Fearlessly and Changing Lives™.
As the periodic table of elements documents the building blocks of our universe, the Biogen Elements shape our company’s culture: pioneering spirit, strong ethics, personal accountability, inclusivity, agility and unwavering customer focus. Biogen Elements are a celebration — and reminder — of all that makes us unique, and all that unites us as one Biogen.
Every day our people generously share their time, talent and financial resources to enrich the world. In 2020 we stepped up to meet the challenges of the pandemic. Biogen employees volunteered more than 4,370 hours around the world and donated more than $2.5 million, including the Biogen Foundation’s employee-matching gifts.
