Our Core Values

At Parexel our ability to do what we do starts with each of us, each day.  Our compassion, drive and commitment to patient health combines to create a deep level of caring that is authentic to our customers and to each other. This level of caring reflects who we are, what we do and how we want to be. Because we’re not just the people with brains, we’re the people with heart.

Our guiding principle - “We care”

Everything we do has the potential to impact patient lives. We show we care by taking our work seriously, demonstrating empathy and acting with heart. And through our actions and our words with customers, employees and sites, we demonstrate our commitment to the patient in everything we do.  We care also means being willing to make tough decisions when needed and prioritizing the needs of the organization to deliver on our vision.
