How We Work - The Takeda Way

Takeda's corporate philosophy (Takeda-ism) is the distinctively different way of thinking that has evolved through the company's history. As well as encapsulating Takeda's corporate philosophy, mission and vision for the future, it reflects the values that all Takeda people share in UK and worldwide.

Ever since the company philosophy was first articulated in 1940, Takeda's approach has been rooted in a powerful sense of social responsibility because of the public nature of the business it pursues.

Takeda-ism commits to producing medicines with integrity and embodies a spirit of bold, confident innovation underpinned by passion and thorough implementation:

As the bedrock of a culture that underpins the organisation worldwide, these guiding principles inform all the activities of Takeda globally and in Ireland.
