Organizational and Personal Alignment
The company that I work for is Ventana Medical Systems and is a division of Roche Corporation. Ventana is a company committed to improve the lives of all patients afflicted with cancer. The values at Ventana are the same as Roche Corporation which are:
Integrity - Embrace differences and are consistently open, honest, ethical and genuine.
Courage – Take risks; reach beyond boundaries, and experiment.
Passion - Use our drive and commitment to energize, engage and inspire others.
The most important observation that I have found is how aligned Ventana is with Roche Corporation even though Roche acquired Ventana several years ago. The culture and values are in complete alignment and cause no apparent ethical conflict. This can be seen with Roche’s mission statement, “To make a significant contribution to the prevention, diagnosis and therapy of diseases and contributes to improving people’s health and quality of life”.
