Learning & Development

Make a real difference in people's lives by challenging yourself to step up and try new things. 

Take on new opportunities to learn, grow and reach higher ground

 We believe in self-directed growth and development, where employees set the goals they want to achieve. We supplement this individualized approach with companywide education and an investment in emerging leaders. For example, our Learn. Develop. Perform. (LDP) program offers easily accessible, personalized development that is tailored to your interests. 

During our award-winning LDP Week, experts and AbbVie leaders from around the world come to speak – and you choose who you want to learn from, based on your own interests and career journey. Our experts cover diverse topics, from cross-functional collaboration and business acumen to unconscious bias. Plus, every year you’ll find innovative approaches to learning. Past events included a 24-hour radio station, bite-sized learning through a YouTube channel and a TED event.
