What is a PULSE assignment? – Emma Drawbridge


Due to the varied readership of my blog, I thought I’d better explain PULSE. Motivated GSK employees are matched to a non-profit organisation for 3-6 months full-time, contributing their skills to solve healthcare challenges at home and abroad. PULSE assignments also challenge employees to think differently about the world, facilitating leadership development and personal growth.
Since its launch in 2009 PULSE has empowered 486 employees to work with 92 non-profit organisations in 60 countries. In 2014 PULSE is sending 100 employees to work on local and international assignments with 38 non-profit organisations in 33 countries.
When PULSE Fellows return to GSK, they act as a catalyst to change the company for the better. Bringing fresh ideals and new energy back to GSK to activate change in step with global health needs. PULSE Fellows use their professional skills to create positive sustainable change for non-profit partners and the communities they serve.
