Helsinn Named as One of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey by NJBIZ

BRIDGEWATER, New Jersey, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Helsinn Group, the company focused on building quality cancer care, is pleased to announce today that its U.S. subsidiary, Helsinn Therapeutics (U.S.), Inc., has been named as one of the 100 best places to work in New Jersey in a survey and award program conducted by NJBIZ which recognizes and honors the state's top employers who show a dedication to their employees' growth and quality of life.

In 2009 Helsinn acquired the U.S. biotech company Sapphire Therapeutics Inc., to establish the U.S.-based R&D and commercial operation Helsinn Therapeutics (U.S.), Inc., located in Bridgewater, New Jersey. This business venture has expanded Helsinn's pipeline of products in existing focus therapeutic areas and, through the venture, the Helsinn Group is now in a position to operate directly in the U.S. market with a direct sales structure within the U.S. cancer care community.

The 100 Best Places to Work in New Jersey ranking was a two-part process with part one evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics and part two consisting of an employee survey to measure the staff experience.

The award program, created in 2005, will announce ranking during an awards dinner and ceremony on Thursday, May 1, 2014, at the Hyatt New Brunswick. The program sponsors include Gibbons P.C., Novo Nordisk and MetLife Solutions Group and is run in partnership with Garden State Council SHRM and Employers Association of New Jersey.
