[font=times] National Instruments Named Among FORTUNE’s ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ List for Ninth Consecutive Year
[font=times][Color=#708090]NEWS RELEASE – Jan. 23, 2008 – FORTUNE magazine yesterday released its annual ranking of the nation’s top 100 companies to work for, listing Austin-based National Instruments as number 79. This is the ninth consecutive year National Instruments has made FORTUNE’s ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ list. The annual survey polls employees from companies nationwide about the quality of their corporate cultures.
“We have built a successful business with a fun, challenging work environment that is truly improving everyday life,” said Dr. James Truchard, NI president, CEO and co-founder. “With a collective focus on innovation, creativity, growth and continuous improvement, NI employees are truly inspired and driven by the impact we’re having throughout science and engineering. Together with our customers, we’re tackling some of the world’s most challenging problems such as global climate change, energy dependence and aging populations. This is what makes me look forward to coming to work every day.”
While National Instruments is best known for pioneering virtual instrumentation with its LabVIEW graphical system design platform, internal programs support the company’s belief that well-rounded employees foster the NI community and provide inspiration to excel. Programs such as LEGO® MINDSTORMS® mentorships and the company’s internal community relations department provide employees with volunteer opportunities to help them give back to the community. The Wellness Circuit program and on-site gym encourage a healthy lifestyle, and activities such as deck parties and company-wide meetings foster camaraderie and a sense of community within the corporate environment.
“It is an honor to be selected as one of FORTUNE’s 100 Best Companies to Work For for nine consecutive years,” said Mark Finger, NI vice president of human resources. “A key to our successful corporate culture over so many years has been our employees’ commitment to both our work culture and the communities we live in. We continue to be grateful for their passion and dedication to both.”[/color][/font]
