“Your work here matters.”

Veeva Systems Inc. — a provider of enterprise cloud software that powers the biggest names in the Life Sciences industry — knows that doing the right thing starts with having the right values and corporate structure to prove it. 

As a result, the company focuses on being honest, treating others with respect and being a positive force in the business community. Veeva considers their customers, the industries they serve, their employees and their shareholders in every decision they make. In fact, in 2021, Veeva changed its articles of incorporation to become the first public company in history to convert to a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). 

Through this company culture and their intrinsic commitment to product excellence and customer success, Veeva has grown to over 1,100 customers — who use their software to transform industries, get critical products and services to market faster in order to improve the lives of patients around the world. For example, 81% of new drugs approved were launched with Veeva CRM!

Interested in joining their team? Now’s the time! Veeva is planning to double its size and grow to 10,000 employees by 2025. In this article, we will take a closer look at how Veeva provides an inclusive culture for their many employees, as well as a few of their great policies.

Ensuring that diversity and inclusion are part of Veeva’s DNA.

“Diversity and inclusion are very much a part of Veeva's DNA. Our core values — Do the Right Thing, Employee Success, and Customer Success — are all deeply rooted within our commitment to fostering a culture of inclusion and equity as we continue to grow our global teams.” — Eric (Seb) Seburyamo, Chief Diversity Officer

At Veeva, diversity and inclusion are at the forefront of their company, which has three core diversity-related beliefs:

  1. Diversity makes us stronger.

    • Veeva believes that diversity begets diverse perspectives, new ideas and fuels innovation. Diversity also makes Veeva an exciting and fun place to work.

  2. Diversity comes in many forms.

    • Gender, race, ethnicity, religion, politics, sexual orientation, age and life experience shape us all into unique people. At Veeva, they respect the individual first and value their people for who they are and the unique contributions they bring to their teams.

  3. Inclusive teams perform better.

    • Veeva strives to foster a culture of inclusion so that everyone feels comfortable being their true selves and can do their best work.

Further, since Veeva’s culture is shaped by their people, they are working hard to ensure that everyone feels seen and included. As such, they launched four Veeva Diversity communities, which are actively involved in Veeva's efforts to grow a diverse workforce, raise awareness of social issues and celebrate the diverse cultures and backgrounds that make up their global team.

These communities are the Veeva Black Community, Veeva Women's Community, Veeva Pride Community and Veeva Asian Community.

Veeva also provides workforce representation data on a quarterly basis for transparency and to track their progress over time. You can take a look at this data here.
