Fairness, respect and inclusion sit at the core of our name. Our people are our greatest asset, so we are continually investing in our people, process improvement and technology to deliver the very best to our customers. As an organization, we are committed to inclusion, we own our limitations, and we value new and different ideas.

Eight Signs of a Strong Company Culture

Diversity & Inclusion

Meitheal is passionate about inspiring and maintaining diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Companies that embrace people for their talents and character regardless of age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and perspective are simply better places of business.

More important, creating an environment where everyone from any background can do their best work isn’t just the right thing to do: It is the smart thing to do.

Equal Opportunity

Meitheal provides equal opportunity employment to all employees and applicants for employment.

We further prohibit discrimination and harassment of any type at work without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws.

Our equal opportunity employment policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and training.

Community Meitheal

What do today’s employees really look for in a company, and what are the best ways a business gives back? At Meitheal, those are questions we think about often – and strive to answer in the most meaningful ways.

We understand that today’s dedicated professionals in generics, specialty biopharma and women’s fertility desire qualities such as a good match of skills and position; opportunities to further learn and develop; an inspiring, progressive environment; and a culture of inclusion and diversity.

They also truly want to be a part of something greater – something that gives back and sustains. Meitheal shows its commitment to the community through various employee volunteer opportunities, fundraising, and partnerships with local non-profits.

Just a few of our specific community efforts include:

  • Tutors and board members of Tutoring Chicago, which tutors children of the city and Chicago Public Schools
  • Donors and volunteers for the Greater Chicago Food Bank and the Lakeview Pantry
  • Salvation Army Christmas Giving Tree, providing Christmas presents for children in foster care
  • Feed My Starving Children, packing and shipping meals for developing countries
  • Rosemont Operation North Pole, providing a Christmas experience for terminally ill children who are health-compromised and their families
  • Active partnerships with the Direct Relief Agency, donating our drug products throughout the year during times of crisis or need
