  • It is very helpful for strategic initiatives to be embraced by senior management. If embraced from the top, they have better chances of bearing fruit and becoming part of the company culture. Similarly, leading by example can greatly assist this strategic initiative. We need a transportation cultural change here at Amylin. Currently, the vast majority of Amylin employees (>90%) drive in to work alone each day. With all the options available, the option of driving in to work alone should be in the minority. This would dramatically reduce CO2 emissions, ease traffic congestion, and boost employee morale. Important Note: Amylin Employees or Amylin, for the purpose of this presentation, refers only to San Diego based Amylin employees based at the corporate headquarters in the UTC area.
