Google Workspace Transformation at Roche: Enhancing Healthcare Innovation 

Roche Group, a global pioneer in healthcare for over 110 years, has been at the forefront of developing innovative healthcare solutions. With a rich history of pioneering discoveries, development, and the marketing of novel healthcare solutions, Roche has always prioritized innovation. Recognizing the need to foster collaboration and streamline operations, Roche has embarked on a transformative journey by adopting Google Workspace as its unified communication and collaboration platform. 


Roche faced significant challenges with its existing communication infrastructure, which comprised two different email and calendaring platforms. This fragmentation hindered effective collaboration among employees, posing a considerable obstacle to the company’s operational efficiency and its mission to save patients’ lives. 


To address these challenges, the Roche Corporate Executive Committee made a strategic decision to migrate all employees to Google Workspace. This move was aimed at eliminating platform interoperability issues and unifying the company on a single, cloud-based platform known for its outstanding service and rapid innovation. 

Google Workspace was selected for its ability to enable seamless collaboration across diverse locations and workstyles. Its integrated and socially-focused collaboration tools were particularly compelling, offering the potential to bring the company closer together and provide a strategic advantage. 


The adoption of Google Workspace is expected to revolutionize the way Roche employees communicate and collaborate. Key benefits include: 

  • Enhanced Collaboration: Google Workspace’s integrated tools facilitate better teamwork, enabling employees to work together from anywhere. 
  • Strategic Advantage: The socially-focused collaboration tools offer Roche a competitive edge, fostering innovation and efficiency. 
  • Simplified IT Infrastructure: Deploying Google Workspace features through a control panel eliminates the need for complex infrastructure, allowing Roche to focus more on its core mission of saving lives. 
  • Increased Mobility: Employees can access their email and documents from any web-enabled device, reducing the need for VPN and easing the strain on IT support teams. 
  • Aligned with Roche’s Innovation Legacy: The move to Google Workspace aligns with Roche’s history of innovation, providing tools that support the company’s forward-thinking culture. 


Roche’s transition to Google Workspace marks a significant milestone in the company’s history, aligning its IT strategy with its mission of healthcare innovation. By removing barriers to communication and enhancing mobile access, Roche is not just upgrading its technological infrastructure but is also reinforcing its commitment to saving patients’ lives. With Google Workspace, Roche embarks on a new era of enhanced collaboration and strategic advantage, poised to continue its legacy of innovation in the healthcare industry.
