Employee Development

Committed to Your Progress, so You Can Stay Committed to Ours

At Lundbeck, continuous people development remains pivotal – in the common interests of our employees, the patients we serve, and the enduring commitment that has made us an industry leader. 

My Performance

‘My Performance’, our global performance management process, provides us with a consistent and strategic platform to deliver employee development results for all our people across our international offices.

Individual Development Paths

Through My Performance, all Lundbeck employees have a defined Individual Development Plan (IDP). Developed through open discussion, each employee’s IDP links their personal objectives with the skills and competencies they need to work on, so they can deliver on Lundbeck’s wider strategic aims and business growth.

Career Opportunities

The My Performance process and IDP are closely linked to three defined career paths within Lundbeck: Specialist, Project Manager, and Line Manager. 

Operating in a complex business environment demands different skills and competencies from our employees. Our three career paths ensure that Lundbeck always has the right people for the right job and provide our employees with different opportunities to fulfill their career aspirations.


To support the development of our people on each of these career paths, we have a series of established employee development programs in Leadership Development, Talent, and Project Management.

Leadership Development

Lundbeck’s Lunar and Solar leadership programs introduce a wide range of tools and perspectives to drive the performance of teams and business areas. It also focuses on personal leadership development and awareness of individual leadership style, strengths, and challenges.


Our Navigator and Voyager talent programs accelerate the development of employees who show exceptional talent. The programs aim to harness, retain, and further develop these valuable employees. They secure a robust succession plan and support the high-performance culture that delivers our long-term business objectives.

Project Management

The Project Manager program develops both basic and advanced skills to manage diverse projects across the Lundbeck organization.
