Faced in 2012 with questions about the $3 Billion fine imposed on GSK – triggered by a sequence of events starting with Study 329, – is it just the cost of doing business? Andrew Witty snapped back:
“Although corporate malfeasance cases end up looking very big, they often have their origin in just… one or two people who didn’t quite do the right thing. It’s not about the big piece. The 100,000 people who work for GSK are just like you, right? I’m sure everybody who reads the BMJ has friends who work for drug companies. They’re normal people… Many of them are doctors.
This brochure appears to be an internal advert for the 100,000 people who work for GSK produced in the middle of the Panorama series of programs.
The text is an object of study in its own right – the basis for a doctoral dissertation.
Note ear ring.
See the Famous Grouse Lecture on Study329.org for context. This images and brochure were generated at a time when GSK was under intense internal pressure. They came from one of the 100,000 just like you and me.
