NI named one of top-100 USA companies to work for
Fortune magazine has released its annual ranking of the USA's top 100 companies to work for, listing National Instruments as number 79. This is the ninth consecutive year in which NI has made Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For list. The annual survey polls employees from companies nationwide about the quality of their corporate cultures.
Dr James Truchard, NI President, CEO and Co-founder, comments: “We have built a successful business with a fun, challenging work environment that is truly improving everyday life. With a collective focus on innovation, creativity, growth and continuous improvement, NI employees are truly inspired and driven by the impact we are having throughout science and engineering. Together with our customers, we are tackling some of the world’s most challenging problems - such as global climate change, energy dependence and ageing populations. This is what makes me look forward to coming to work every day.”
While NI is best known for pioneering virtual instrumentation with its LabVIEW graphical system design platform, internal programmes support the company’s belief that well-rounded employees foster the NI community and provide inspiration to excel. Programmes such as Lego Mindstorms mentorships and the company’s internal community relations department provide employees with volunteer opportunities to help them give back to the community. The Wellness Circuit programme and on-site gym encourage a healthy lifestyle, and activities such as deck parties and company-wide meetings foster camaraderie and a sense of community within the corporate environment.
Mark Finger, NI Vice President of Human Resources, states: “It is an honour to be selected as one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For for nine consecutive years. A key to our successful corporate culture over so many years has been our employees’ commitment to both our work culture and the communities we live in. We continue to be grateful for their passion and dedication to both.”
In addition to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list, NI has been named one of the best places to work in Germany, Hungary, Italy and the United Kingdom.
