Practically all of our workforce comes from Basque Country and maintains an indefinite relationship with the Company. With these actions, we try to contribute not only to the attraction, but first of all to the retention of talent.
We think that training and research are, without a doubt, two key investments for any society and its reversal involves the use of the talent that they can provide. Faithful to our social commitment, the totality of our staff is integrated by professionals with the highest level of training.
Commitment to the CULTURE of Innovation
Today, humanity has an unprecedented amount of knowledge, paradoxically we speak of new terms like 'infoxication'. The knowledge of the genome and the life sciences in general have developed during the last years at a particularly vertiginous rhythm, giving a crucial importance to the dissemination that allows the society to appreciate its relevance about the future.
Our contribution in this field leads us to the development of diverse and numerous actions: from the diffusion in different forums, to activities of vocational inspiration such as the IkasEkiten program. Complemented with active internship and research programs, both higher education and FP.
