Boehringer Ingelheim

Boehringer Ingelheim recognizes the balance between work and private life is not only important to its employees, it's the key driver of their overall success. Their commitment to improving lives extends to the more than 9,000 U.S. Boehringer Ingelheim employees. As part of creating a positive work environment, the company strives to create a culture where its employees are encouraged to balance their work life with their personal life. Generous paid time off policies give employees the freedom they need to spend time with friends and family, work in the community, or pursue their personal passions.

BI recognizes that an employee who feels they have “balance” brings a higher level of dedication and energy to their work. To help employees achieve this balance, Boehringer Ingelheim offers an on-site child development center for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age.

Boehringer Ingelheim has a long heritage of doing the right thing—for its patients and their families, communities, customers and employees. The company recognizes that it is part of a larger community, and the employees feel strongly about partnering with organizations to improve it. Since 2002, Boehringer Ingelheim has donated over $1.7 million to AmeriCares. These contributions support the freestanding clinic in Danbury, CT, and its mobile outreach program. In addition to its financial support of these programs, Boehringer Ingelheim also has employee volunteers who donate their time to see clinic patients on an ongoing basis.
