We handle confidential information carefully to protect Roche’s assets and interests
As Roche employees we do in many ways have access to confidential information related to our business; this includes confidential information about research and development projects, manufacturing methods, business plans, financial data, marketing and sales strategies, launch of new products, merger or acquisition activities etc.
We respect the confidential information belonging to third parties. If we share confidential information with a third party, any exchange of such information is subject to the signing of a confidentiality agreement.
We have to be aware that in a competitive environment, third parties strive to get access to confidential information related to our business. Competitive intelligence activities by third parties are part of our industry. We must be extremely careful how we handle confidential information in public places, such as airplanes, trains, trams, bars and restaurants.
Secrecy obligations are part of the employment contract and will continue to be in force after the end of employment.
