During our “Year of Collaboration,” Horizon shared team effectiveness resources and trained employees on virtual collaboration tools and “Crucial Conversations.” The concepts from this book equip leaders to hold effective conversations with their team members in high stakes situations.
Despite the pandemic, Horizon has continued to hire and avoid layoffs, pay cuts and hiring freezes. Horizon, one of the fastest-growing biotechnology companies, also recorded growth in 2021, leading to an increase in both full-year 2021 net sales and adjusted EBITDA guidance.
The key to retaining employees is by building a culture in which all employees feel included and bring their authentic selves to work. To better understand allyship, Horizon’s series “Real Talks About Race” focuses on listening, learning, owning your story, and modeling inclusive behaviors.
Horizon’s learning platform, GrowU, ensures content meets the needs of the business and employees. Every employee also has access to LinkedIn Learning and is eligible for tuition reimbursement. In 2021, Horizon launched Aspiring Leaders, which focuses on developing future Horizon leaders.
Horizon is guided by three core values: transparency, in which employees trust each other to tackle tough challenges; accountability, which is enhanced by listening to and learning from employees; and growth, which is brought to life through a continuous focus on employee development.
The wellness team amplifies a message of care with tools such as a wellness challenge calendar and kit that offers resources and tips to inspire employees to care for their well-being, including “Spring Into Wellness,” an interactive road map for employees to craft their own wellness journey.
Horizon’s culture starts with CEO Tim Walbert role modeling the company values as he communicates key business updates: when the pandemic struck, Tim maintained full transparency and accessibility with employees by hosting candid, down-to-earth virtual business updates and Q&A sessions.
For working families, Horizon offers many best-in-class benefits, including caregiver leave and parental leave for all parents and on-site child care. For employees who wish to start or continue to grow their families, Horizon offers adoption assistance and surrogacy assistance.
