The rankings acknowledge RTI as a family-friendly workplace in addition to a previous award as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces overall this year
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — RTI International, a nonprofit research institute, was included as one of the top 800 organizations in Newsweek’s America’s Greatest Workplaces for Parents & Families 2023 rankings following one of the largest employee review studies in the U.S. The survey was conducted in collaboration with market-data research firm Plant-A Insights.
“We are thrilled to be honored by Newsweek twice this year,” said Bucky Fairfax, D.B.A., executive vice president, chief human resources officer. “This acknowledgement as one of America's Greatest Workplaces for Parents and Families is a testament to our staff and the families they support. With flexibility top of mind, our family-friendly culture provides all staff with the resources they need to excel at work and at home.”
Based on evaluation in the following eight categories, RTI earned four out of five stars: corporate culture, working environment, work-life balance, company image, training and career progression, compensation and benefits, sustainability awareness and proactive efforts toward workplace diversity. The first three categories were weighted more heavily for this survey.
“A workplace that supports parents and families is beneficial to everyone. Employees at companies with flexible working hours, parental leave, childcare support and eldercare assistance are less likely to feel overwhelmed with family responsibilities. Newsweek and market-data research firm Plant-A Insights are proud to introduce America's Greatest Workplaces for Parents & Families 2023, highlighting companies that are lauded by their employees as great places to work,” said Nancy Cooper, global editor in chief, Newsweek.
America's Greatest Workplaces for Parents and Families 2023 was determined by surveying 36,000 parents who work for companies that employ at least 1,000 individuals. The study collected 224,000 company reviews.
The recognition underscores RTI’s commitment to creating a family-friendly work environment. The institute was also recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces overall in 2023.
