What makes it so great?

The healthcare company's Backup Care program allows those that rely on Novo Nordisk employees as primary caregivers to have access to specialists, billing the employee only a minor co-pay. It also created the "TakeAction!" program, which gives workers the opportunity to donate and contribute to charitable and community-based projects. These kinds of projects, along with job sharing and on-site child care, allow the staff to participate in interests outside of their job description. "Leaders give you the autonomy to make your own decisions and be who you truly are," says an employee.
