PAREXEL has been named to the FlexJobs Top 100 Companies to Watch for Telecommuting Jobs in 2016 for the third consecutive year. The list recognizes companies with a telecommuting-friendly component to some of their jobs, such as the ability to telecommute entirely or part of the time.
PAREXEL offers approximately 20 percent of its global employees flexible work options, including telecommuting, flexible schedules, and home-based employment. In North America, approximately 40 percent of PAREXEL’s employees take advantage of the Company’s telecommuting and flexible work opportunities.
