Pfizer leaders and managers take an active role in developing colleagues and helping them fulfill their career goals:
Individual Development Plans: Colleagues work with their managers to create detailed career “roadmaps” that take into account colleague interests and aspirations as well as Pfizer’s business needs.
Mentoring: Pfizer actively promotes mentoring through its Mentor Match online tool – a quick and easy way to volunteer to be a mentor or to find a mentor that meets specific criteria.
Internal Advancement: Colleagues may freely explore and apply for positions within Pfizer.
Coaching-Focused Performance Management Process: Pfizer encourages managers to hold frequent, robust performance coaching discussions, rather than assigning labels to sum up an entire year’s performance.
Short- and Medium-Term Experiential Opportunities: Through activities like job-rotation assignments, experiential action projects, and short-term project roles, Pfizer offers colleagues a variety of short- and medium-term career development opportunities.
Learning & Development Opportunities: Colleagues can take advantage of learning and development opportunities focused on hundreds of topics, including leadership and management skills, industry- and job-specific learning, and general business, manufacturing, finance, and technology skills.
Colleague Resource Groups: At Pfizer, colleagues will receive a warm welcome if they get involved in one of our more than 100 site-based Colleague Resource Groups (CRGs) located throughout the world. Pfizer has CRGs focused on the following groups: Asians, Blacks, colleagues with disabilities, Latinos, LGBTQ, Veterans, and Women. In Europe, Diversity Councils focus on all types of diversity.
CRGs are groups of colleagues who are part of and/or who support the goals of a diverse population. They offer support, developmental opportunities, mentoring, and networking opportunities to help their members enhance their skills and advance their careers. They also contribute their unique backgrounds and viewpoints to help advance Pfizer's business, and they help their outside communities by participating as a group in many volunteer and philanthropic activities.
Gender Parity Collaborative: Pfizer is a founding member of Healthcare Businesswomen's Association (HBA) Gender Parity Collaborative to advance initiatives fostering measurable gender parity progress in the industry
