Every Novotech office globally celebrates “NovoDay” for one day each year where the entire team gather to celebrate their hard work and achievements.
  • Our teams stay connected on “The Hive” - our internal social media network on Yammer. The Hive allows employees to share personal photos of their lives with colleagues and encourages connectivity with employees on parental leave.
