Rewarding Performance

Recognition program

Ipsen US recognizes the contributions of our employees is an essential part of our culture. Recognition comes in many forms, and at Ipsen US, we have 2 formal programs in place. The first enables peer-to-peer recognition, and the second acknowledges those employees who go above and beyond in demonstrating our Values and Behaviors.

Compensation and performance

Our compensation and benefits policy is based on 3 key principles:

  • Internal equity
  • External competitiveness
  • Rewarding performance

Our individual performance appraisal process provides a formal opportunity for dialogue where the employees and managers can discuss the company’s objectives and translate those into individual goals that are in line with the company’s strategy.

  • For managers, it is the forum to motivate and encourage team members to achieve their objectives
  • For employees, it is the ideal opportunity to discuss their performance and any difficulties they may have encountered in their work
