Culture and values

Our mission is to improve the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer.

We place great emphasis not only on what we achieve, but also on how we deliver our achievements. Integrity is critical in everything that we do.

Our culture is summed up in the GSK spirit that defines the qualities we expect all our employees to embrace:

* performance with integrity
* entrepreneurial spirit
* focus on innovation
* a sense of urgency
* passion for achievement

Our mission and spirit help our employees deal with new challenges and maintain a clear focus.

Each of our businesses worldwide is raising awareness of the GSK spirit, helping employees to understand and adopt its principles through workshops, team meetings, presentations and awards.
