Employee Volunteerism

Bayer dedicates employee time to our community partners, encouraging participation in partnership programs and events. In addition, we provide all employees up to 16 hours or two business days a year to put into causes that matter personally to them.


Rooted in our mission statement Science for a Better Life, we believe that by working together and continuing research with local partners, we benefit from one another’s knowledge and we help fuel scientific discoveries that ultimately improve patients’ lives

Understanding the diseases we treat, appreciating how our products help patients and caregivers, and knowing that the work we do each day benefits those in our communities is a powerful driver behind our partnerships. Here are a few of our recent partnerships:

In 2015 Bayer committed a $200,000 grant each year over five years to the Pulmonary Hypertension and Chronic Thromboembolic Program at University Health Network in Toronto. The grant from Bayer will support the development of an integrated program of outstanding laboratory capabilities, world-class education and exceptional patient care at UHN.

In 2012 Bayer established the UBC Bleeding Disorders Collaboration with St. Paul’s Hospital, BC Children’s Hospital and the Centre for Blood Research to support initiatives that bridge fundamental research to clinical work and to patient care. The three year agreement will provide a total of $750,000 to the Collaboration.

Bayer partnered with McMaster University, McMaster Children’s Hospital and the Hamilton Health Science Centre Foundation in 2010 to establish the Chair in Pediatric Thrombosis & Hemostasis, an initiative to improve care for children with bleeding disorders through clinical research.
