Our people & Communities

Lek, a Sandoz company, has many advantages resulting from the knowledge and capabilities of our associates. We strive to offer opportunities for our associates to live and build their skills in an encouraging work environment and to work in safe and healthy working conditions. We are taking an active part in the local communities by volunteering and engaging in philanthropic activities.

Reputation and Responsibility united

We are proud and happy to be among the most reputable employers in Slovenia. We received numerous awards for our extensive and planned investments in the training and education of our associates.

By producing new jobs and creating opportunities for the employment of young and promising professionals, we actively contribute to the development-oriented economy in Slovenia.

Be Healthy

The company-wide initiative Be Healthy based on four pillars (Move, Choose, Know and Manage) aims to promote health among employees.

Every year, the initiative features top Slovene athletes that encourage our associates to embrace a healthy and active life. Within the Be Healthy program associates are offered free screenings to learn important facts, such as body mass index, blood pressure, intraocular and blood pressure, sugar levels, and are referred to specialists.

Diversity, talents and freedom of opinion

We appreciate and encourage the diversity and individuality of our associates and do not tolerate discrimination.

We seek to create an inclusive and tolerant environment that is open to different ways of thinking and leading, life and professional experience, different cultures, and global mindset.

Volunteering associates 

Lek, a Sandoz company, is one of the pioneers of corporate volunteering in Slovenia.

There are a number of volunteers among Lek's associates who are dedicated to volunteering in a range of community initiatives. For more than a decade (since 2005), our associates join the company-wide Community Partnership Day initiative and give a helping hand to people in their home environment, mostly in Ljubljana, Mengeš, Domžale and local area as well as in the wider area of Prevalje and Lendava.

Our associates volunteer in many initiatives across Slovenia, particularly at social institutions and in organizing activities to improve the wellbeing and inclusion of children, youth and elderly.
