Seven years ago FlexJobs started researching the best employers for remote work, and Parexel is one of twenty companies to be included ever since. We are very proud to be leading in remote friendly opportunities, and thereby offering a wide range of flexibility to fit our employees' lives.
Improving our employees' work-life balance
Parexel has been named to the top 100 companies for remote jobs in 2020.
- Recognizes companies with the highest number of part-time or fully remote job postings in 2019
- Parexel named to the top 100 out of 54,000 companies
Parexel offers approximately 25 percent of its over 20,000 global employees flexible work options, including telecommuting, flexible schedules, and home-based employment. In North America, approximately 60 percent of our employees are home-based, and even more take advantage of the company’s telecommuting and flexible work opportunities. These employees represent a diverse cross section of positions, including clinical research, biostatistics, and regulatory affairs.
Our home-based opportunities
Parexel has home-based options around the globe. We routinely have remote opportunities in the following professions:
- Clinical Site Manager / Clinical Research Associate
- Data Management & Statistics
- Project Management
- Information Technology / IT
We are proud to be leading a trend. For the general job market in the US remote work has grown 91% over the last 10 years.
Being able to work from home provides flexibility, trust and productivity
“We are pleased to be recognized as a leader in providing telecommuting and remote job opportunities,” said Tom McGoldrick, Senior Vice President of Talent Acquisition, Parexel. “By offering remote and flexible work options, Parexel has developed a highly engaged, skilled, and satisfied workforce that allows us to continue delivering for our clients and helping them bring new treatments to patients in need.”
Sara Sutton, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs, says: “I believe the true scope of remote work is much larger, with informal and ad hoc work-from-home arrangements increasingly common. Of course, all of this is ultimately fantastic news for remote job seekers across all career fields and levels.”
We agree! Parexel offers many home-based positions, but office-based staff are often offered flexible working options too. We recognize that working from home has many advantages—whether you are looking to increase time with your family, care for your pet, etc. Being able to live outside of expensive urban hubs is also a big plus! In today's connected world, working from home has never been easier.
Building a community for remote employees
We have a dedicated community page on the Parexel Intranet that includes recommended collaboration tools to help employees connect with each other, as well as advice on setting up a home office. Parexel also offers several training programs for home-based employees.
CSM Connection Spots
In North America, Clinical Site Managers (CSMs/CRAs) are often traveling and working remotely. To foster camaraderie and team building, in person meetings, called "Connection Spots,” have popped up across the region. Most recently, events have occurred in Atlanta, Billerica, Dallas, and Research Triangle Park.
