A biotechnology pioneer since 1980, Amgen has grown to be the world’s largest independent biotechnology company, has reached millions of patients around the world and is developing a pipeline of medicines with breakaway potential.

Amgen is committed to unlocking the potential of biology for patients suffering from serious illnesses by discovering, developing, manufacturing and delivering innovative human therapeutics. Amgen focuses on areas of high unmet medical needs and leverages its biologics manufacturing expertise to strive for solutions that improve health outcomes and dramatically improve people’s lives among six key therapeutic areas: cardiovascular disease, oncology, bone health, neuroscience, nephrology and inflammation.

Amgen started operations in Taiwan since 2015, with the goal of bringing more new treatments and clinical trials for patients in Taiwan. Over the years, Amgen Taiwan has devoted to delivering innovative health solutions to patients through innovative biologic therapies in bone health, cardiovascular disease, and oncology as well as value-based partnership with health care providers, governments, and local communities. In everything we do, we aim to fulfill our mission to serve patients.

To maintain our position as a world leading biotechnology company, we place immense value on fostering and enhancing the talents of our colleagues, as well as enabling their growth, both personally and professionally. We provide comprehensive training programs by utilizing state-of-the-art technology and possessing professional skill certification processes to ensure our teams are well-equipped to maximize their potential. In order for Amgenese to understand career development, we provide clearly defined career pathways for various levels and capabilities requirements for different roles within the company.

As part of Amgen’s journey to become a Best Place for Talent, we ensure that colleagues have access to high impact learning solutions that help build the most essential skills and behaviors required for future career opportunities across a spectrum of disciplines. We continue to thrive by keeping colleagues with the volatile market intelligence, inviting them to participate in regional conference, and further supporting them financially for professional development.

Furthermore, it is very important to enable our staff to chart their own career paths by rewarding their contributions and future potential while encouraging fulfilling and meaningful careers through challenging assignments, active development and coaching, and individual rewards.

We also offer comprehensive group insurance coverage, physical exam package, retirement plan and paid time off. As much as we seek high commitment in work at Amgen, we want our colleagues to live in a healthy and balancing life as well. We do so by encouraging them to exercise regularly, while providing employee assistance during their difficult times. Every milestone and contribution colleagues made along the way are well recognized by the company and peers through various internal awards. Here at Amgen, coupled with modern working environments and a robust benefits package, we remain committed to providing careers that have a meaningful impact at work—and beyond.

Our investment in people is not limited to the talent development and Compensation and Benefit programs – making work and life integration seamless for our employees is also our priority. To achieve this, apart from the best practices in Human Resource Management, we extended our creativity in both the infrastructure and in work design.

In infrastructure, our activity-based office is created around the idea of innovation & collaboration. It represents and aides the collaborative spirit we strive to work as a Team. The open space design allows employees to sit, work and communicate with different functional colleagues and brainstorm for work innovation. Suitable work space is selected at individual’s desire to correspond to his/her personal need or work type. One can sit in the coffee area or pick a “focus room” when a quiet space is needed or sit by the “Sunshine room” for project discussion with cross-functional teams.

Our work design on flexible working hours and Telecommuting policy gives employees flexibility as needed in their daily lives. Amgen Taiwan is committed to create a workplace that is The Best Company to Work For.

Making a positive difference in the world is at the heart of what we do at Amgen and it goes beyond making vital medicines. Each year, our staff dedicate significant resources towards building a better tomorrow.

In order to inspire the next generation of innovators, Amgen Taiwan works with the Amgen Foundation, the principal channel for Amgen’s corporate philanthropy to support Taipei Medical University Feng-Hsing Youth Service Group for their remote island biomedicine camp which provides hands-on medical science education for around 260 secondary school students in rural parts of Taiwan. We have also supported the Ministry of Science and Technology LEAP program to cultivate talents to lift their abilities of strategic thinking and entrepreneurship since 2017.

Our corporate social responsibility reflects Amgen’s core values and complement the company’s dedication to impacting lives in inspiring and innovative ways. Amgen’s commitment to Taiwan reflects the company’s interest in increasing patient access to its medicines, in support of Amgen’s mission to serve patients. Every day, we continue our efforts to discover, innovate and deliver on our mission.
