Company Goals

At AbbVie, we strive to make a remarkable impact on patients’ lives. Our scientists are shaping their fields and doing all they can to bring medicines to patients quickly and safely. We believe that impact goes beyond medicine, which is why we also provide broader support to our patients, operate responsibly and actively engage in the communities where we live and work. Science and innovation are the cornerstones of our business. With leading scientific and industry capabilities, a comprehensive approach to tackling the toughest healthcare challenges and a track record of achievement, we are a long-term partner in the pursuit of better health outcomes.  We focus on discovering, developing and delivering medicines where we have proven expertise and can make an impact. Our efforts are concentrated in the fields of immunology, oncology, virology, and neuroscience. AbbVie medicines treat serious health conditions affecting people at all ages and stages of life. We believe that our impact begins, but does not end, there.


AbbVie is guided by our mission to contribute to the strength of our global community. We strive to ensure a diverse, open and innovative culture for our employees, including our working parents, with opportunities for career advancement and tailored flexibility to enhance the work/life balance. AbbVie does not discriminate on sex, religion, or race. We offer our people the tools, training and experience they need to reach their potential. This positive corporate atmosphere helps inspire our employees in their drive to bring important therapies to patients. Today, our medicines benefit more than 28 million people across 175 countries. Philanthropically, the AbbVie Foundation is dedicated to serving unmet needs across the globe. Through charitable contributions to nonprofit organizations and partners who work to benefit communities where we live and operate, the Foundation’s focuses are on building strong communities, sustainable healthcare systems, and effective educational programs.
