Our Credo / our values

Our Credo and our company values form the pillars of our corporate culture and are the foundation of our success.

Every individual employee knows and practices our common values and thus creates space for our corporate culture of mutual respect and appreciation and innovation


Since 31 July 2003 the CREDO has driven our common thinking and actions!

On 6 June 2003, as part of an employees' assembly, the cornerstone was laid for a company-wide set of guiding principles, termed the MorphoSys CREDO. On this day and also during the subsequent weeks, all employees had the opportunity to provide their input to form the MorphoSys CREDO. In May 2011 and again in October 2018, our Credo was extended in order to reflect our increasing responsibility associated with the company's activities in proprietary drug development.


Our corporate values

Our common corporate values are innovation, collaboration, courage and urgency. These values drive and guide our work, our daily interaction and offer orientation for our thinking and acting.
