What do we offer?

Our benefits meet the needs of our geographically diverse workforce. They are benchmarked against industry standards and relevant to each role.

They are designed to recognise everyone’s contribution. They are comprehensive and include a competitive salary, benefits programmes for you and your family, and a performance and development programme to help identify the needs and behaviours required to achieve success.

Here are some of our key benefits:

Diversity and inclusion

Creating an inclusive workplace aligned with our Hikma values is fundamental to us. Our people know that their differences contribute to our ongoing success.

We created a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee which provides strategic direction, leadership and supports delivery of our equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives.

  • Diversity training: our top leaders are trained to help them reflect on their own behaviours, recognise and challenge bias and advance systemic change on inclusion.
  • HR policies: our global recruitment policy encourages managers to consider a diverse pool of candidates and our international assignments policy aims to facilitate employee mobility within Hikma.
  • Employee Resource Groups: we have an official Employee Resource Group programme in place. It was started with the US Black Employees Advisory Board and the Hikma Women’s Network. These groups are open to everyone in our organisation. They create more formal opportunities to foster a sense of community, cultural awareness and a sense of belonging.
  • Global engagement campaigns: we drive and implement internal campaigns to recognise our communities, such as International Women’s Day, Ramadan, Juneteenth, Black History Month and many more.
