Rewarding excellence with AbbVie Total Rewards

Total Rewards designed to help our employees achieve success in all aspects of their lives

Total Rewards is AbbVie’s approach to compensation, benefits and well-being. Our Total Rewards program corresponds to – and reinforces – each of the elements of our Talent Philosophy. This ensures our programs remain competitive and relevant in attracting, retaining and engaging the talent we need to drive our current and future business success.

We are always looking for talented people to join our team. And when we find them, we make it our business to reward them well.

At AbbVie, great talent is at the heart of our organization. Our Talent Philosophy guides how we manage, develop and lead talent. Every HR practice and program is grounded in our Talent Philosophy.

We care about what’s important to our employees

Our programs go beyond the usual. We’re driven by the health, welfare and financial well-being of our employees worldwide. That’s why we offer employees a robust portfolio of benefits, compensation and well-being programs that enable them to meet their personal and professional needs.

Work-life effectiveness in action

“Because of AbbVie’s support of working parents, I was able to build a flourishing career — and ensure my children were thriving as well.”

Kathryn Kalivoda, Director, Supply Chain Brand

Since joining AbbVie in 2005, Kathryn has been able to progressively advance her career. She started out leading the technical support for medicine indicated for prevention and treatment of respiratory distress syndrome in premature infants and has recently moved into the Operations Supply Chain organization where she is the director of Neuroscience products.

Kathryn Kalivoda took advantage of AbbVie's maternal support programs until her sons were in school full-time.
