In day-to-day corporate activities, it is necessary to ensure that decisions and conduct are carried out in a timely and appropriate manner.

To enable all officers and employees to carry out their activities with the same standard, Eisai has developed the “Compliance Handbook,” which includes the “Eisai Network Companies Charter of Business Conduct”—the basis of the Eisai Group's corporate activities—and the “Eisai Network Companies Code of Conduct,” which lays out the guidelines. Compliance handbook is available in English and Telugu (local language in Andhra Pradesh) which effectively promotes Compliance among all the employees in Eisai India.

human Health Care (hhc)

Eisai India strives to realize Eisai's corporate philosophy of realization of human health care (hhc). This philosophy is summarized by the term hhc.

We believe that in order to truly consider the perspectives of patients and their families, it is important for each employee to first get close to patients and see the situation through their eyes to learn to pick up on thoughts and feelings that might not necessarily always be expressed in words. It is this concept that is the starting point for all of Eisai's corporate activities.

Eisai India recommends that all of its employees spend 1% of their working hours with patients. It is through this patient socialization Eisai India employees understand the difficulties faced by the patients and empathize with them and make all efforts to meet their needs by prioritizing them according to the order of the needs of the patients and their families.

Eisai India also collaborates with various health care agencies, government departments and NGOs for improving quality of life of people and increasing awareness about dementia and vector borne diseases.

hhc activities carried out by Eisai India include:

  1. Media awareness programs for general public.
  2. Screening of films on disease awareness
  3. Organizing disease awareness camps for senior citizens in community through medical professionals
  4. Setting up & supporting Memory clinics for end to end solution (awareness, intervention & post care, scientific data generation)
  5. Training of caregivers
Eisai India has won the prestigious THE RX CLUB GOLD in public service announcement (PSA) category for the year 2009 for its movie “Bedtime Story”. Eisai's commitment to innovative solutions in disease prevention, treatment and care for the health and well-being of people worldwide is embodied in our human health care (hhc) mission.
