DEERFIELD, Ill.
, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Takeda Pharmaceuticals announced today that the Chicago Tribune named Takeda's Deerfield campus among Chicago's Top 100 Workplaces in 2013. The Chicago Tribune's Top Workplaces list is determined by anonymous feedback from employees of participating companies who credited their employers with having dynamic, supportive and inclusive cultures.

"To be included on this list for a second year is a great honor, especially given that the feedback comes from our employees," said Laurene Giagnorio, senior vice president of human resources and administration. "Providing a work environment that attracts top talent and inspires our employees to do their best work remains a priority for us."

Takeda's mission to strive toward better health for people worldwide through leading innovation in medicine naturally lends itself to challenging and rewarding work. To support our dedicated employees and encourage innovation, Takeda offers the following benefits, among others:

  • State-of-the-art work environment featuring LEED-certified offices
  • Free and professionally-staffed indoor fitness center
  • Outdoor walking paths and sports field
  • Award-winning on-site childcare center
  • Onsite subsidized cafeteria serving an international menu using fresh, locally sourced produce
  • Flexible and modified workweeks
  • Online and instructor-led development programs
  • Job-share programs
  • Medical and scientific lectures
  • Free health screenings and wellness programs
  • Adoption assistance
  • On-site volunteer opportunities and paid volunteer time-off
  • Matching gift program for charitable contributions
  • Tuition reimbursement

In addition, Takeda sponsors events that foster deeper connections among employees by celebrating and collaborating with one another and with spouses, partners, children and their communities. These annual events include Takeda Cares Day, during which employee participation drives substantial contributions to community-based non-profit organizations; Rebuilding Together Day, an opportunity for employees to repair local homes and revitalize communities; and Takeda's Take Your Child to Work Day, enabling employees to share the company's award-winning workplace and cafeteria with their children, while providing an educational and fun experience for all.

As a result of these diverse benefits and offerings, Takeda was also recently recognized by Working Mother as a 100 Best Company in 2013, one of Interactive Health's 70 Healthiest Companies in America and Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by The National Association for Business Resources (NABR).
