We can all be grateful to top pharmaceutical firms such as Amgen for bringing jobs to Ireland, but these companies aren’t necessarily going to rest on their laurels.

Ireland is currently host to 10 out of the 10 pharmaceutical companies in the world, Amgen included among them.

These firms inject money into the economy through the construction of sprawling, state-of-the-art facilities as well as by bringing jobs to Irish shores.

Many of these companies also want to expand their presence in a more meaningful way, by launching initiatives to benefit the surrounding community.

We headed down to Amgen’s south Dublin premises to chat to some of the employees about the way that management enables them to not only do good work, but to do good full stop.
