TIP TROVE | Finding the Ethical Biotech
Courtesy of Chris MacDonald
Ethics should guide the pharmaceutical industry, but it's not always easy to determine a company's ethical track record prior to signing on. It's a good idea to talk to people in the industry, as insiders tend to know the reputations of companies.
We shouldn't pretend that a pharmaceutical company's values exist only for the public good. Still, employees can promote high ethical standards by openly talking about how the company can be the right kind of role model. Ask coworkers, "Is this the kind of company we want to be? Don't we want to be able to enjoy the respect of the industry and of the public?"
