Lilly was founded in 1876 by Colonel Eli Lilly, a man committed to creating high-quality medicines that met real needs in an era of unreliable elixirs peddled by questionable characters. His charge to the generations of employees who have followed was this: “Take what you find here and make it better and better.”
More than 145 years later, we remain committed to his vision through every aspect of our business and the people we serve starting with those who take our medicines, and extending to health care professionals, employees and the communities in which we live. Lilly unites caring with discovery to create medicines that make life better for people around the world.
Three long-established core values guide all that we do at Lilly.
- Integrity: We conduct our business consistent with all applicable laws and are honest in our dealings with customers, employees, shareholders, partners, suppliers, competitors and the community
- Excellence: We pursue pharmaceutical innovation, provide high-quality products and strive to deliver superior business results.
- Respect for People: We maintain an environment built on mutual respect, openness and individual integrity. This includes our concern for all people who touch or are touched by our company: customers, employees, shareholders, partners, suppliers and communities.
Discovery is our calling. It is the spirit that has defined us since the day Colonel Eli Lilly opened the doors of our first laboratory in Indianapolis. Over 140 years and nearly 100 medicines later, we keep looking for the next great discovery and for even more ways to make life better for people around the world.
