Parexel India receives official 'Great Place to Work' certification
Parexel becomes the first CRO in India to be awarded this certification!
The certification is based on a detailed, research-backed survey of Parexel India colleagues and conducted by Great Place to Work, an outside organization. You can see Parexel India listed on the Great Place To Work website (under Large Organizations).
Parexel was evaluated across five categories — pride, credibility, camaraderie, respect, and fairness. For an organization to be certified as a Great Place to Work, 70 percent or more of employee respondents need to rate the organization as a great workplace.
82 percent of Parexel India colleagues shared that they think Parexel is a Great Place to Work!

The certification is recognized by employees and employers around the world and is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ in identifying and recognizing great workplace cultures.
Our employees share their thoughts on Parexel India's Great Place to Work Certification
- Sanjay Vyas - Senior Vice President, India Country Head and Head CTS＆L - Bengaluru
"Being recognized as a ‘Great Place to Work-Certified’ organization is a fantastic honor and a true testament to the hard work, pride, and dedication that every Parexel India colleague has for each other and most importantly for our patients. We are incredibly proud to have received this honor in our journey towards building and sustaining a high-trust, and high-performance culture."
- Ankush Mandve - Manager, Data Management - Hyderabad
"I strongly feel the award was received based on how we responded during unprecedented times. The organization has lived up to the “We Care” philosophy. It was not only on the cards but also the demonstration of those attributes that have helped to win the hearts of many colleagues. Respect at work is my personal favorite which enables associates to gain trust and do their best. We managed to maintain transparency and honored great talent within several business units. We got the roadmap to follow momentum. It’s a proud moment for all of us and let's cherish it."
- Preethi Giriraju - Senior Process Excellence and Quality Consultant - Bangaluru
"At Parexel India, it’s noteworthy to mention that any feedback/suggestion is just not being heard but actioned upon which definitely sends out a strong message that Parexel strives for continuous improvement. As an organization I have not encountered situations where work-life balance takes a back seat. The open-communication policy encourages all employees to speak up to seek appropriate responses. Here, the leadership team not only nurtures the value of working ‘With Heart’ but also ensures to create an atmosphere for each individual to truly learn and enjoy while contributing to patient’s needs. Receiving this Certification only reconfirms the guiding mantra ‘We Care’ is truly good to both Parexel’s employees and customers. I am proud to be part of the Parexel team and confident of witnessing many such recognitions year after year.
- Shrey Bhargava - Drug Safety Associate-II - Sas Nagar (Mohali)
"The best thing Parexel has, are the really strong people working here. In our work environment and with all our colleagues we’re like one big family. The work environment is unbelievable and it’s something that doesn’t come along very often. Honestly, I have had a very positive experience and career at Parexel. I really like the people I work with."
- Shikha Pahwa - Manager, Pharmacovigilance Operations - Chandigarh
"Parexel India deserves to be the certified holder of the 'Great Place to work' title, considering it has supported me to balance my personal and professional life. It’s kind of a second home where I have received all kinds of guidance, help, and opportunities to boost my confidence as a professional in a male-dominated world because Parexel recognizes the strength of the female workforce and provides them with an equal opportunity to excel in every sphere of work."
- Paramdeep Singh Gill - Associate Director, Pharmacovigilance Operations - Sas Nagar (Mohali)
"Achieving this certification during the pandemic is a proud moment and speaks for itself. It was a time for each one of us to showcase that we are part of the Parexel family who is connected “WITH HEART”. Our top priority is “PATIENT SAFETY” because we believe someday somehow we or someone in our family is a patient as well."
