Nine years ago FlexJobs started researching the best employers for remote work, and Parexel is the only CRO to have made the list every year since 2014. We are very proud to be leading in remote-friendly opportunities, and thereby offering a wide range of flexibility to fit our employees' lives.
Accommodating colleagues’ needs for flexible working approaches
Parexel continues to be named one of the top 100 companies for remote jobs in 2022.
- This list analyzed 57,000 companies to recognize those with the greatest number of part-time or fully remote job opportunities
- Parexel has been named as number 19 out of the top 100
Parexel is one of just eight companies that have made the list each year since its inception, including: Anthem, CVS Health, Dell Technologies, Kelly, SAP, Stride and UnitedHealth Group. Long before the pandemic necessitated at-home and remote work options, we were leading flexible work approaches.
“We are pleased to be recognized as a leader in providing telecommuting and remote job opportunities,” said Tom McGoldrick, Executive Vice President of Talent Acquisition at Parexel, “By offering remote work options, we've developed a highly engaged, skilled, and satisfied workforce that continuously delivers for our clients; bringing new treatments to patients.”
Work from home needs flexibility, support, and transparency
Brie Reynolds, career services manager for FlexJobs, says "What we’re seeing now at the end of 2021 is a broader approach to remote work that employers have taken on … [and] a broader representation of high quality professional jobs, not just IT and customer service. It’s a change in the employer’s mindset.”
An employee survey evaluating working practices during COVID-19 revealed increased support for remote work options as well as high productivity levels associated with remote work. In response to feedback from our colleagues — the majority of whom shared with us that they prefer flexible ways of working — we introduced a global Flexible Work Arrangement (FWA) in early 2021.
