At Pharmathen we are committed to our CSR mission, to make a positive impact on the lives of people and lead them towards better health. It is our commitment to embrace a culture of responsibility and integrity within the workplace. In doing so, we constantly motivate our employees to become involved with the communities in which we operate through volunteering, fund-raising and various environmental programs, aiming to reach the highest engagement levels across the group. We are aware of the fact that sustainability can only exist when a sustainable and healthy society is secured. For this reason we have conducted a CSR strategy focused on the following pillars:

Our people

When “I” becomes “We” everything is possible!
Our employees are the driving force in everything we do and we share with them the same vision and values, inspiring each other towards operational excellence. We are committed to ethical behavior, volunteerism and positive interactions that stimulate better relationships with the communities we serve. We invest in their unleashed energy to fulfill their potential and provide them with training programs, human resource direction and customized benefit systems.
For that purpose we have created “Pharmathen Academy”, an internal educational program offering our employees and their families the opportunity to further develop their skills and expertise in a variety of topics such as foreign languages, music, chemistry, logistics, finance, human resources management etc.
Scholarship programs for our employees' children, active participation in Marathon run events in Athens, Thessaloniki and Alexandroupoli, upkeeping a Blood Bank for the needs of employees and their families are few of the activities in which we are all involved and engaged.

Our main goal is to remain a learning organization that constantly develops its human capital and enables people to exchange knowledge and ideas. Employee satisfaction is measured consistently by participating in “Great Place to Work” annual surveys with several distinctions. We use a variety of communications channels and exchange ideas on a regular basis in order to provide updates regarding progress towards our strategic goals, listening to their feedback and adopting innovative ideas that make a real difference to the world.

Our Communities
We work together to help create a brighter future
We are actively engaged in social contribution activities, by means of employee volunteer efforts, corporate initiatives, and fund-raising. Our charitable initiatives focus on supporting charities, donating equipment to local schools and hospitals and other philanthropic activities that promote volunteerism, sports, education and culture. We undertake initiatives of medicine donations and health information programs, support local families and reward the academic excellence of students with scholarships and grants. As a responsible corporate citizen we strive to constantly provide new value to society by incorporating a variety of the needs, values and challenges within society into our corporate activities by:

  • Providing reliable and affordable pharmaceutical products
  • Engaging in philanthropic activities
  • Embracing cultural diversity
  • Selecting ethical business partners
Social groups in need
Recognizing the importance of our corporate social role, we undertake many actions towards social groups in need with sponsorships and donations promoting social awareness. Our goal is to support and promote institutions that make a valuable contribution to society but are not so well-known among the wider public. Supporting this goal, the Pharmathen music band, "Pharmaklides", often organizes or participates in fund-raising events. Indicatively, over the last few years, we have contributed to the activities of institutions like Floga, SOS Villages, The Smile of the Child, Children’s Hospitals, Youth Sports Clubs, and Clubs for the Elderly. 

During the last 5 years we have founded the “Charity Week of Giving & Love” during Christmas, Easter or during the beginning of school period promoting ownership and personal responsibility through the active participation of our people in these CSR actions.
