Amgen celebrates ‘Mission Week’ at Thousand Oaks headquarters
Amgen held an Oct. 12 celebration at its Thousand Oaks headquarters as part of the biotech giant’s second annual Mission Week.
Mission Week is an internal initiative that provides Amgen staff the opportunity to step away from day-to-day work, celebrate how their endeavors matter to millions of patients worldwide and be inspired by those patient journeys, according to company spokesperson Megan Fox.
This year’s Mission Week consisted of Patient Voices Panels in Thousand Oaks, Munich, and Singapore.
Amgen Chairman and CEO Robert Bradway briefly addressed the few thousand company employees in attendance at the Thousand Oaks celebration, saying “let’s try to keep the spirit of our mission, which is to serve patients, alive just not this week, but through every week.
“Thank for what you do in service of patients,” he said. “Thank you to the many Amgen colleagues worldwide who work so hard to make this week possible.
“And above all, one last time, a huge thanks to the patients and their families for their willingness to so generously share their stories with us,” Bradway said.
