INDIA: With the launch of its inaugural list of the “World’s Best Multinational Workplaces,” the Great Place to Work Institute has ranked National Instruments number 18 among the top 25 multinational companies to work for in the world. During a gala event last night at the New York Stock Exchange, NI president, CEO and cofounder Dr. James Truchard gathered with top executives from other leading global companies honored with this recognition, including Google, Intel and Microsoft.
“Our 100-year plan is built on the principle that our culture and employees are a key differentiator and long-term competitive advantage of NI,” said Dr. Truchard. “NI has become a technology pioneer by not only investing in products, but also in the people who make them. We hire the best and brightest, maintain an open and innovative corporate culture, and empower employees to grow their careers along with the company.”
With its company mission to equip engineers and scientists with tools that accelerate innovation and discovery, NI also aims to create a work environment that is both inspiring and fun for employees. NI employees make products that help customers design innovative medical devices, launch rockets into space and ensure successful operation of next-generation cell phones. For 35 years, the work of NI employees has revolutionized the way engineers and scientists develop any system that requires measurement and control.
The award recognizes National Instruments’ unique corporate culture and commitment to providing quality, meaningful jobs around the world. NI’s long-term management approach recognizes that employee success directly impacts the success of the company’s key stakeholders and is critical to long-term growth and overall company success.
As the company has grown from a three-man operation to a multinational organization, it has maintained its entrepreneurial spirit and collaborative nature that spurs innovation in every area of the business. NI also holds the philosophy that a well-balanced work environment improves employees’ well-being and inspires excellence. To support that philosophy, NI offers its employees professional, personal and community development initiatives, volunteer opportunities and wellness programs and facilities.
