With, Panum’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) effort, Panum Cares (PCare) we have established a set of sustainable CSR initiatives to facilitate a four-pronged approach enabling employees to have a positive impact in the communities we live in. These initiatives include participating in Governance & Ethics, Philanthropy & Volunteerism, Diversity & Inclusion, and our newsletter, Panum Thrive.
Everything we do at Panum follows Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) rules. Our Ethics and Compliance Program promotes and ensures ethical conduct, honesty and integrity throughout our business operations. It is built on the foundation of our four core values- Integrity, Quality, Respect & Teamwork. These values are shared with our employees, contractors and partners to produce a corporate culture of doing the right thing in the conduct of the company’s business-every day.
Our approach is giving back to the communities in which we live. We believe in and work towards creating positive social impact through comprehensive non-profit partnerships and active employee engagement efforts towards causes we all believe-in. We work on measurable outcomes for our social investments to help transform the lives of those most in need. And when we asked our employees what they cared most about, the response was-Veteran Support, Children and Hunger. As a result, we have focused our philanthropy and volunteerism efforts in these areas with ongoing support for disaster relief.

The company operates with integrity and with respect to diversity and is a critical factor of what we are. Diversity goes far beyond the confines of HR. It’s a value that this entire company embraces from the top down. Panum draws from its rich ethnicities, genders, and backgrounds which allows us to bring different ideas and solutions to the table, making us all stronger and richer.
Wellness is all about keeping our people happy and healthy. And this means different things to different people. For some it’s about managing their weight, others it’s having a healthy work-life balance or participating in team sport. And to some it may simply mean forming small club with the people that you work with. Whatever the definition, Panum strives to understand and then develop programs, resources and opportunities that will contribute to everyone’s well-being at the company
