Eight 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

Long before the pandemic necessitated at-home and remote work options, Parexel was leading flexible approaches to work outside the office. Due to that expertise and infrastructure, we were able to quickly adjust to the increased needs of additional home-based employees. Since early 2020, Parexel colleagues around the world have aligned their professional and personal lives to continue to deliver for our customers and patients.
“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 at 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.”
Work from home needs flexibility, trust and participation
Sara Sutton, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs, says, “The coronavirus pandemic has permanently reshaped the workplace and how, when, and where people work. Business models have been forever disrupted with the realization that remote work is smart, strategic, and sustainable for companies to embrace, improving not only the bottom line but also providing benefits to the overall workforce."
We agree! Throughout the pandemic, Parexel has continued to monitor and evaluate the benefits of remote work while accommodating our colleagues’ needs for flexible approaches in order to achieve optimal work-life balance.
An employee survey conducted in summer 2020 evaluating working practices during COVID-19 revealed increased support for remote work options as well as high productivity levels associated with remote work. To further facilitate this positive trend, Parexel has initiated a formal Flexible Work Arrangement Program to be rolled out on a country-by-country basis beginning this year.
