Sharing Employee Skills Program

Transferring employee skills from Roche to improving health programs in developing countries.

Roche Secondment Program: Sharing Employee Skills

The Roche Secondment Program provides a unique opportunity for Roche employees to share capacity and transfer specialist know-how in an effective and sustainable way, whilst also gaining valuable personal development and experience opportunities. With all projects being health related, the programme aims to support lasting changes to health through the experience and skills of Roche’s employees.

Employees can spend from three to twelve months working in a developing country in collaboration with a partner organisation which already has expertise on the ground. The program focuses on Least Developed Countries or low income or lower middle income economies.

Through combining the skills and resources within Roche with those of other organisations, the aim is to deliver sustainable outputs that could not have been achieved alone.

Partnership objectives:

  • Make a sustainable contribution to improving health in developing countries by facilitating transfer of Roche employee’s skills, know-how and expertise to partner programs.
  • Provide Roche employees with personal development and experience opportunities by enabling them to contribute and help make a difference in developing countries.
