"Biocon has been listed amongst the Top 20 Employers in the Biopharma industry globally by the survey conducted by the prestigious Science magazine. It is a great honour to be recognized as an organization which "treats employees with respect" and as a result "has loyal employees". It is a testimony to the way the Biocon employer brand has been growing stronger with each passing year and the sincere efforts put in by its talented people towards building this brand. Biocon's focus on innovation and differentiation continues to drive business performance and attract world class talent. We have been very successful in retaining talented employees who have joined us from overseas over the years. Recent alliances & partnerships and the new facility we are setting up in Malaysia have thrown up more opportunities for talent acquisition in some niche disciplines. An open culture & an entrepreneurial environment make working at Biocon a stimulating, enriching and rewarding experience."
