“We encourage our employees in GSK to volunteer and contribute to our local communities. It helps our employees gain new experiences and skills, creating a deeper understanding of patient needs. Employees come back with a different view and serve as change agents in GSK,” said Sriram Jambunathan, General Manager for GSK Philippines Pharmaceuticals.

As well as this, volunteering is also a great way to demonstrate and live our values outside of the organization,” said Ritesh Pandey, General Manager for GSK Philippines Consumer Healthcare. GSK Values are Patient Focus, Integrity, Respect for People, Transparency.
“We believe that we can do good and do good business at the same time, embedding ‘responsible business’ in the core of our operations, the patients at the heart of everything we do.
