Alkermes 2019 Corpororate Responsibility Report

In 2018, we significantly enhanced CaRE™, our proprietary risk mitigation program designed to encourage employees to preemptively identify and address EHSS risks and enhance sustainability.

CaRE has been rolled out across the organization to engage leaders and colleagues from various parts of our business to take an active role in building a preventive and sustainable EHSS risk-focused culture. The program includes a number of components that help encourage high employee engagement and contribute to our low incident rates, including:

  • Workplace “walkthroughs” by cross-functional leaders to improve risk awareness and encourage proactive action, fostering open and honest discussions with employees;

  • Our “Good Save” system to help identify and resolve workplace hazards and risks;

  • Improved data collection and management to support risk mitigation and measurement efforts; and

  • Recognition for those employees engaged in CaRE efforts, to amplify and encourage our collective goal of continuous improvement.
