Camaraderie and collaboration – what sets ICON apart

Special blog article submitted by Samantha Burt, Vice President, Global Talent Acquisition

Looking in from the outside, it’s hard to know what really takes place at a company on a daily basis. Nobody knows the inner workings of an organization better than its employees, so what employees say about it carries a lot of weight.

If employees aren’t provided an environment where they feel supported, valued, and developed, then customers, stakeholders, and the community ultimately will have an unfavorable opinion and not hold the company in high regard.

That certainly makes the job hard when a recruiter is trying to bring the best and brightest on board.

Thankfully, that’s not a problem at ICON.

ICON was recently named one of the World’s Best Employers for 2021 by global media company Forbes. This recognition is solely the result of employees’ on-the-job experiences and firsthand feedback.

The Forbes recognition was based on an independent survey, so that’s not our company’s executive leadership delivering the message they want you to hear. It’s ICON employees’ honest opinions. I think there’s no better award than one that is championed by our employees. That’s something that really means a great deal.

What better advocate is there than our own workforce? They sent the message that the new ICON is a great place to work for a number of reasons. Of course, they’re passionate about our work improving and saving lives, but also that they are provided a welcoming, inclusive, and innovative environment to pursue their career goals.

They also value our collaborative spirit. I continually hear my Talent Acquisition teams around the globe say that whenever anyone needs help – no matter the task – there’s an array of individuals who will jump in and help, without hesitation. So, while clinical development is precise and attention to detail is critical, it is great to work at a company where teamwork is key.

I don’t think you can underestimate that feeling of partnership and team camaraderie. As new people join ICON, they feel it immediately. That there’s no end to the network that will help them be successful, which is really the magic ingredient of a desirable place to work.

Contract Research Organisations (CROs) can be very similar in terms of the work they perform and there has to be something that makes one organization stand out above the rest. The constant theme that comes through when talking to ICON employees is that ICON’s culture and values set us apart.

Personally, in my nine years at ICON, I have gained a wealth of extensive and diverse global experience and have had the opportunity to lead across our HR Centres of Expertise. ICON is definitely a company where you can constantly add to your current skill sets and advance your career.

ICON is growing like never before, and we continue to see our internal growth and movement within the organization grow, ensuring many of our employees have a long, fulfilling, and fruitful career.

The time couldn’t be more right to see the exciting job opportunities that await you at ICON!
