At BioInvent, we are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen by improving the ways in which our business activities have a social, environmental and economic impact. This takes many forms, from the diverse workforce that we employ, the high internal Health and Safety standards that we set and operate, through to our involvement and investment in the local academic community.
Employees - BioInvent is dedicated to providing a stimulating and nurturing environment for all our employees.
Our workforce is diverse and balanced, with employees from more than 16 different countries and female employees representing over 60% of our total workforce. BioInvent provides an informal and flexible working environment, where the importance of motivating and retaining a highly skilled and diverse workforce is recognised. We have employment policies that meet and exceed those required by Swedish Employment law e.g we offer our employees private medical insurance in addition to what is required by the Collective agreement. To further protect our employee's health and wellbeing we have invested in preventative measures and rehabilitation programmes which facilitate a smooth transition back to work for employees who have had the misfortune to be on long term sick leave. We offer our employees an annual contribution towards wellness activities (e.g. gym membership, massage) and the opportunity to receive subsidised lunches.
We believe strongly in developing and retaining a skilled and professional workforce through investing in training and ongoing professional and personal development. All our employees benefit from regular reviews, feedback and knowledge sharing between teams. Internal communication is accomplished through a staff intranet and scheduled meetings to update all staff on company developments (including those on leave).
Health and Safety - BioInvent is committed to achieving and maintaining high standards of Health and Safety.
Our Health and Safety committee, that is also represented by senior management, meets annually following an entire internal review and audit of our Health and Safety practices. Plans and protocols are reviewed and objectives set for the future. External Health and Safety inspections have always successfully met the required, stringent criteria.
Environment - BioInvent seeks to minimise the environmental impact of its business and scientific/research activities.
We achieve this through cooperating with the initiatives of the Ideon Science Park to recycle waste and reduce energy consumption, as well as through BioInvent's own rigorous standard operating procedures regarding disposal of hazardous waste and recycling of office and laboratory material. BioInvent's manufacturing permit also contains provisions for appropriate consideration of the environment.
Community - BioInvent works with its local scientific community, sharing resources, time and funds.
We participate in the local community at a variety of levels, including the active involvement of our senior and research staff in teaching and at faculty board level at the University of Lund through to inviting students to carry out research projects and gain laboratory experience.
