Grünenthal digitally networked for the benefit of patients

"MyGrünenthal", the company's new social intranet.

More than 5,200 employees in 30 countries and from all departments of Grünenthal work together to improve the lives of patients with new, effective drugs. A close exchange is indispensable. The internal cooperation has been strengthened since the beginning of the year by "MyGrünenthal", the company's new social intranet.
Talents, know-how, strengths and interests

What is the name of the colleague in Santiago de Chile who is responsible for the project xy? Has anyone ever had the problem ABC? Does anyone in Aachen play tennis with me? The basis of the social intranet are the profile pages of all employees worldwide. Finding a contact, starting an exchange, relying on expertise - that's easy with MyGrünenthal.

Another key element is the editorial news section for cross-company news that employees can "like" and comment on. In addition to these likes, comments and questions, their own contributions in the numerous communities show what motivates employees at their workplace at Grünenthal. A trust-based corporate culture values the feedback of its employees and uses it for development.

With knowledge transfer react flexible and agile to the challenges of the market

Direct interaction across country borders, departmental and hierarchical levels strengthens the sense of us and serves to exchange best practice on a wide variety of topics, be it interaction with patient groups, training on compliance issues, quality-enhancing measures or suggestions for process improvements. Knowledge transfer is essential for a company like Grünenthal, which wants to react flexibly and agile to the challenges of the market.

Of course, MyGrünenthal is also available for mobile use. No matter where employees work, whether in the field, in the home office or on a business trip, they always have secure access to the company's central knowledge and communication platform via the MyGrünenthal app.

MyGrünenthal also promotes private networking

The success and well-being of employees are based on a balance between work and private life. MyGrünenthal also promotes private networking, be it through sports, cultural initiatives or the exchange of leisure opportunities at the various company locations. Employees have also created their own virtual spaces on MyGrünenthal for such topics. The platform has become an integral part of the modern working environment at Grünenthal.
