Our employees are the face of Werfen and they exemplify our values in their day-to-day interactions with our stakeholders. We recognize that each employee is essential to our success, and we’ve built an environment that nurtures, supports, and rewards the unique contributions of every individual.

Our culture is the combination of our values, innovation, and our people

Our Culture

Our organization is made up of smart, hardworking, and humble team players who, above all, respect one another. We are all working towards a common purpose, driven by innovation and a passion for improving patients’ lives.

Our culture is supported by this drive for innovation and by our people applying our values in the context of their actions and when communicating with each other, our customers, and other stakeholders. We thrive in this environment as it brings out the best in us all.

Our Culture

We are One Company, One Team

We Are One

Teamwork is one of our values, which has evolved to include cross-collaboration. Through our specialized workshops, we continued to promote and facilitate collaboration across teams, departments, and countries in 2023.

We are one is a new internal slogan that refers to how we cross-collaborate and exchange knowledge, skills, and experiences wherever we work. It makes us One Company, One Team across the globe.

We Are One

We have welcomed 1,000 new colleagues

Welcome new colleagues

In March 2023, we welcomed almost 1,000 new colleagues when we added our two new business lines: Transfusion and Transplant. Local and global integration teams have worked thoughtfully and tirelessly to incorporate these business lines into our organization on all fronts. During the year, we made fantastic progress, from preparing to rebrand worldwide to introducing our new colleagues to our values and culture.

We are proud to see how We are one has been embraced across our company.

Life at Werfen

Mariana Sandoval

Werfen is more than a workplace—it’s a community dedicated to improving the lives of patients who rely on our solutions for their health and care.

My professional journey in communications has been so rewarding: With the support of my colleagues and leaders, I’ve grown into a manager role within two years and now lead an amazing and talented team that inspires me to be the best version of myself.

Working with the Latin America and Global teams brings new challenges and opportunities to learn, to cross-collaborate, have fun, and make a difference every day.

For me, working in Werfen’s IT team means working in a dynamic and safe environment with a great atmosphere among colleagues. The diversity of our profiles and cultures makes the group very special and interesting to work with. We combine remote and face-to-face work, which means collaborating with people from around the world while also being able to have frequent after-work gatherings with the Barcelona team.

I joined Werfen through the Global Leadership Program as an MBA intern. In my short time here, I have been presented with amazing opportunities allowing me to significantly develop my career, while feeling a great amount of support around me.

After starting in the Corporate Business Development team, I became involved in setting up the CVC, now We Venture Capital, from idea to launch and execution. I am grateful to be in a role that truly engages and energizes me, allowing me to bring all my passion into my work.

The best thing about working at Werfen is the people – I have had the pleasure of working with so many motivated, creative, and focused colleagues who have supported me in developing my skills and experience, and progressing in my career. Moving to Transfusion and Transplant, I can use my experience to make a positive contribution to my new team. It is amazing to see the potential in this area, and work with a team who are so focused on how we can support customers to deliver the best quality patient care.
