People and Culture

The greatest and most sustainable long-term competitive advantage for NI is its employees, who directly influence the company culture and the company’s continued success. As NI continues its steady growth and global expansion, the company ensures that its “people advantage” strategy is preserved, lending success to the company’s other key stakeholders: customers, shareholders, and partners. With this strategy, NI meticulously hires the best and brightest employees, nurtures a great work environment with career development opportunities and purposeful work, and maintains a culture of giving through relevant and impactful employee and company philanthropy programs.
