PAREXEL International, a global biopharmaceutical services organization, has been named to the FlexJobs Top 100 Companies to Watch for Telecommuting and Remote Jobs in 2017 list for the fourth consecutive year. The list recognizes companies that are telecommuting-friendly, allowing for candidates to telecommute on a full- or part-time basis.
PAREXEL offers approximately 20% of its nearly 20,000 global employees flexible work options, including telecommuting, flexible schedules, and home-based employment. In North America, approximately 40% of PAREXEL’s employees 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.
“We are pleased to be recognized as a leader in providing telecommuting and remote job opportunities,” said Tom McGoldrick, corporate 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.”
“More people are now professionally engaged in the knowledge economy, which naturally supports jobs that can be done from home. And as more companies embrace remote work in meaningful ways, more people will have greater access to broader career and employment opportunities, creating a positive ripple effect on our economy,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs.
