CEO Today - USA Awards 2022

Lilly was founded in 1876 by Colonel Eli Lilly, a man committed to creating high-quality medicines that met real needs in an era of unreliable elixirs peddled by questionable characters. His charge to the generations of employees who have followed was this: “Take what you find here and make it better and better.” More than 145 years later, we remain committed to his vision through every aspect of our business and the people we serve starting with those who take our medicines, and extending to health care professionals, employees and the communities in which we live. Three long-established core values guide all that we do at Lilly. Integrity We conduct our business consistent with all applicable laws and are honest in our dealings with customers, employees, shareholders, partners, suppliers, competitors and the community. Excellence We pursue pharmaceutical innovation, provide high-quality products and strive to deliver superior business results. Respect for People We maintain an environment built on mutual respect, openness and individual integrity. This includes our concern for all people who touch or are touched by our company: customers, employees, shareholders, partners, suppliers and communities. Our Purpose Lilly unites caring with discovery to create medicines that make life better for people around the world. Discovery is our calling. It’s the spirit that has defined us since the day Colonel Eli Lilly opened the doors of our first laboratory in Indianapolis. Over 140 years and nearly 100 medicines later, we keep looking for the next great discovery and for even more ways to make life better for people around the world. From early discovery through drug development, as well as while a drug is on the market, Lilly works to ensure the safety and effectiveness of our medicines. Our approach to medical safety is rooted in evidence, science and ethics and puts patient well-being first and foremost in our decision-making, with an emphasis on transparency. Beginning with the discovery of a potential new medicine, and for as long as it is available to patients, our goal is to ensure that the benefits and risks of a medication are continuously monitored and wellunderstood by regulators, health care providers and patients.
