50th anniversary of Roche in Rotkreuz
Curiosity and perseverance are – and have always been – conditions for progress, and these qualities have been vital to Roche in Rotkreuz for half a century now. Learn from Annette Luther, General Manager, and 50 other people how they experience the Rotkreuz site, what inspires them and what makes them curious.
Roche in Rotkreuz has many faces but still maintains a unique and distinctive identity that has grown over the last 50 years. We want to visualise our anniversary through the theme #StayCurious.
It is curiosity, as a central driving force, that has accompanied us from our founding in 1969 as Tegimenta in Zug with just 60 employees until today’s Roche Diagnostics International in Rotkreuz with around 2500 people from 70 nations. Our site has developed into a modern and open campus that is architecturally unique and unparalleled in central Switzerland.
Ultimately, it is the countless enthusiastic and committed people, as employees, suppliers, authorities and business partners, that have shaped Rotkreuz over the past decades with their perseverance, commitment and spirit of innovation. It is the diversity of intelligent and creative minds from different nations, professional groups and functions that makes us stand out.
Personally, I am fascinated by the combination of a strongly rooted local culture with a highly international and future-orientated focus. We meet challenges constructively and in an open dialogue, find pragmatic and sustainable solutions and implement them quickly. I am always particularly impressed by the moments when we, as a site, break new ground and I can feel the joy of the employees in being part of our Roche Rotkreuz family.
What inspires you?
#StayCurious – for the next 50 years.
General Manager, Roche Diagnostics International AG
I am inspired by people who live their individuality and use it for the advancement of mankind.“
