Astellas Expands Paid Military Leave Policy in Wake of COVID-19   

Astellas is Committed to Veterans

At Astellas, we recognize the value of having employees that bring diverse skills and different experiences to the workplace. Nurturing our diverse workforce and ensuring our culture of inclusion enhances our ability to provide solutions to our patients and stakeholders.

We encourage current and former military personnel to explore career opportunities at Astellas.

We are committed to providing support for the recruitment, retention and recognition of Astellas employees with military experience. Aside from our hiring outreach, we honor and support military veterans in several ways:

  • Our Military Employee Impact Group provides support and education to Astellas employees through outreach activities and member services.
  • Our headquarters location in Northbrook, Illinois features a Heroes Garden that honors the sacrifices made by individuals who have served in the military or as emergency first responders, as well as a preferred parking program for U.S. military veterans.
