People and Culture

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