Roche Diagnostics Corporation

When the world’s leading biotech company, Roche Diagnostics, began experiencing a workforce development gap, its leaders turned to the University of Indianapolis. Our solution was to create the Roche Academy, a partnership focused on creating an early-in-career talent pipeline. STEM students who complete the program successfully receive educational opportunities, professional development, and financial incentives including a job offer from Roche upon graduation.

“We have to think differently and more creatively as a company to attract highly skilled talent. Through a unique talent initiative and partnership with UIndy we’ve been able to fulfill our employment needs for the positions which are critical to our business.”

“We reached out the UIndy which led to a discussion on custom training options. We wanted to address customer service issues, but not in the traditional sense of phone greetings, timeliness, etc. We really wanted to dive deep and define who our customer actually was and what good service to them would look like. The customized training developed by UIndy has helped break down the “proverbial” silos of our organization. Teams are more familiar with each other and more inclined to work together than before. We have started a great conversation around who is our customer, what attributes do we want to focus on as an agency and what does success look like delivering on our mission.”
