Talent Management

The success of Arbor Research’s reputable research is due to our multidisciplinary team of investigators, analysts, programmers, applications developers, project management specialists, editors, and administrative professionals. In order to attract and retain a highly qualified team, we have instituted a performance management program to evaluate and reward employees in a fair and equitable manner based upon demonstrated job performance. Through this program employees receive scheduled performance evaluations designed to address proficiency and skill development needs and interests. A salary review accompanies these evaluations at least annually.

During these evaluations and on a regular basis, managers are instructed to discuss available and appropriate professional development opportunities with each employee. We encourage, facilitate, and financially support each staff members’ use of internal activities and third-party offerings to enhance their skills and advance their careers.

Fun Events

It’s no secret that employees spend a lot of time at work over the course of their career. At Arbor Research, we try to break up that work time by sponsoring fun events during work hours, including:

  • All staff lunches
  • Ice cream socials
  • Annual holiday party
We also think it’s important for staff members to mingle with their co-workers in a non-business setting. We sponsor events outside of work hours for staff members and their families to attend, including sporting events and an annual picnic.
