Regeneron is a leading biotechnology company that invents life-transforming medicines for people with serious diseases. My CareerPath.ie worked with employees across all departments of the company.
Regeneron commenced IOPS (Industrial operations and product supply) in Raheen, Limerick in early 2014 and is Ireland’s Largest Biologics Production Site with a current headcount in excess of 1400 employees. Responsible for the production, quality and distribution of Regeneron products for patients worldwide.
MyCareerPath.ie aligned with our organisation’s mission to develop and promote an entrepreneurial spirit, curiosity, innovation, flexibility, teamwork, and collaboration. Advancing our commitment to diversity, equity & inclusion is a natural extension of our mission to improve lives.
We felt that the Career and Learning Pathways could contribute to the Regeneron Way of:
“The overall aim of piloting and collaborating with MyCareerPath.ie was to support and empower employees to manage skills and knowledge to thrive within Regeneron. It also encourages career management and progression, while promoting further development through programmes of study that improve regional and national output.”

A focus on the Regeneron Way in valuing all employees and developing open and curious mindsets to thrive.

“I have gained so much confidence from this that I’m going to enrol in a course – something which I would never have even considered before.”
“The career learning pathway provides a very interactive and instrumental career development framework for the participants.
They receive honest assessment of their strengths and unrealised strengths which is supplemented with engaging and motivating coaching from guidance professionals leading to greater informed career choices.”
“I received assurance that I have chosen the right career path. It was also great to hone-in on areas of special interest – because beforehand, I wanted to do a course to progress for progression sake. Now, with my Career & Learning Pathway Advisor’s help – I have found a course that I am passionate about, that will serve to future-proof my career.”
Learners found the career assessments particularly useful, gaining deeper insights into their individual personality, strengths, values and motivations. It was helpful in guiding people to see how this knowledge is impactful in the workplace. Our 1-to-1 Career Guidance support proved extremely beneficial in identifying transversal skills gaps, building confidence and the motivation to engage in conversations for career progression, transversal skills development, and further study needs.
