Since taking on the role of President of Novo Nordisk Canada in the fall, Béatrice Clerc has quickly seen just how employees' personal and professional lives blend. "Our team is encouraged to share personal experiences about what inspires them to make a difference, like Stéphane Audet, who lives with type 1 diabetes and interacts with health care professionals daily to discuss diabetes management needs and innovation. We personalize the work we do, so that our employees are constantly reminded of the impact they have," said Ms. Clerc. "We create a healthy workplace culture to help employees be the best colleague, but also the best parent, friend and family member.
