Elevate Inc. is proud to welcome Amgen to the community. Amgen is committed to unlocking the potential of biology for patients suffering from serious illnesses by discovering, developing, manufacturing and delivering innovative human therapeutics. Determined to take an innovative approach to providing essential business solutions, in 2017 the company built the Amgen Capability Center (ACC) in Tampa, Florida to deliver efficient and innovative global business solutions companywide to better reach and serve patients.
Responsible for the distribution of business-enabling services including operational, analytical, staff support and business support activities, the Tampa site focuses on reducing functional silos and creating a culture focused on performance and continuous improvement. This approach has resulted in improved collaboration, which innovates and streamlines processes for the entire enterprise. By providing these services in a better and more efficient manner, the Amgen Capability Center (ACC) has become a competitive advantage for the global company. In 2020, the ACC introduced Amgen Assist, a hub service that supports patients and healthcare practitioners.
While bringing innovative medicines to people suffering from serious diseases is the best way Amgen can contribute to the greater good, the company understands that society often confronts multiple challenges at once. The efforts of Amgen fall into four categories:
- Healthy People – Focusing on removing barriers that limit equitable access to healthcare so that people can live their healthiest lives.
- Healthy Society – Working toward a more just society for our employees and the people we serve.
- Healthy Planet – Prioritizing sustainability with an aim to minimize the environmental impact to preserve natural resources for generations to come.
- A Healthy Amgen – Holding ourselves to high standards in all we do to ensure our culture and products reflect Amgen values.
Since Amgen’s founding 40 years ago as one of the first start-ups of the biotech revolution, Amgen has grown into one of the largest independent biotech companies in the world and remains a worldwide pioneer in biotechnology. Our mission is to serve patients. We are proud of our heritage as a biotech startup, our people, our culture and our dedication to our mission. It’s what makes Amgen a great and special place to work.
