Incyte is committed to supporting our colleagues as they plan their professional development. Opportunities for growth are provided through challenging job assignments, performance management, training and tuition reimbursement. These opportunities enhance career aspirations and job satisfaction as well as personal enrichment.
Many professional development opportunities are organized by department. For example, the E.D.G.E. (Empowerment, Development, Growth, Engagement) Program seeks to connect and empower Incyte employees in the U.S. Business Team to foster professional growth and leadership. This is accomplished through speaker programs and networking opportunities, featuring internal and external leaders, mentorship opportunities, and increased awareness of professional development opportunities.
In the U.S., Leadership Development Training is provided to managers that are new to Incyte, employees who were recently promoted to managers and those individuals that have been identified as potential leaders. Additionally, classes in presentation skills and emotional intelligence are offered throughout the organization as well as the Insights Discovery Workshop.
In Europe, managers are eligible for selection to participate in a training program, which includes multiple modules with unique focus areas. A team effectiveness workshop is in place for teams to help improve communication, accountability, decision-making and overall performance. The Insights Discovery workshop seeks to improve internal and external communication. In addition, the Challenge Academy is a program aimed at challenging employees through specific projects.
Globally, all full-time employees are eligible for tuition reimbursement as well as on-site learning opportunities, such as Lunch and Learns wherein colleagues can interact with others in the organization and benefit from their knowledge and different perspectives.
