Nancy Vitale of Genentech Joins Better to Reveal the DNA of Innovative Great Workplace Culture

OAKLAND, Calif: Great Place to Work, the global authority on high trust workplace culture, recently unveiled Better, a new podcast series of interviews with some of the best leaders in business.

In the third episode, Nancy Vitale, the Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Genentech, explains how the company's culture starts with its patients. A leading company in biotech and pharma, Genentech has created a winning workplace by having a clarity of mission, which is to deliver life-saving drugs to millions of people around the world. Vitale shares what has kept the company among the best workplaces in the U.S. since it was founded in 1976 and how it continues to be one of the most innovative employers in the biotech industry.

Each episode of Better offers tips, strategy, and advice from executives at Great Place to Work-Certified companies that make their workplace culture a top priority, because they know it's ultimately better for their people, better for business, and better for the world. In each episode, host Christopher Tkaczyk chats with executives from some of the world's best workplaces to learn more about the tools companies need to become better by focusing on the business case—and the results—that come from putting people first.

The first season of Better was recorded during the 2019 Great Place to Work For All Summit in San Francisco. Podcast episodes can be found on Apple iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and TuneIn, as well as Great Place to Work's website.
