Our employees are our most important assets, and we work hard to create an environment where they feel respected and valued for who they are and the contributions they make. Meet the co-leads of Operation Salute, our Employee Resource Group (ERG) focused on recognizing the service of and supporting our veteran, National Guard and reservist employees.

Julie Albertson, Director, Federal Accounts, works hard to ensure veterans are recognized for their service and sacrifice. “Co-leading Operation Salute is important because it provides the opportunity to pay homage to our veteran and National Guard/Reservist employees,” said Albertson. “For those looking to get more involved, I would recommend attending your local Veterans Day parades, visiting a veterans’ home or stopping by a local VFW to help honor those who have worked to keep all of us safe."
Sean Shumaker, Associate Director, Business Process Excellence, works to include the voices of employees who are actively serving in the National Guard or Reserves. “I work to represent the best interests of not only veterans and their families but also our Alkermes team members who are currently serving,” said Shumaker. “Amplifying their voices to help create positive change is critical."
Heidi Stuck, Associate Director, Information Technology, recognizes the importance of Alkermes’ efforts to honor and support veterans. “I am very proud of the company for being willing to listen to our ideas and make changes,” said Stuck. “I am looking forward to continuing to listen and learn from my colleagues to help Alkermes support veterans.”
