We are continuously building the company we all want to work for, and our customers want to work with. That’s why our efforts not only benefit our colleagues, they are also key to addressing and solving complex business needs and challenges for Syneos Health and our customers.
We celebrate our talent; we live our Values and we won’t tolerate discrimination of any type.
We take pride in creating an environment where our employees – of all backgrounds and beliefs, including: Race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, mental, physical and invisible disabilities and veteran status – are encouraged to bring their Total Selves to work each day and embrace our culture.
We know companies who are leaders in inclusion, equality and diversity are more likely to be high performing, able to embrace change, and achieve better business outcomes. Why? Because when we bring together diversity of thought, backgrounds, cultures and perspectives – we’re able to build a place where everyone feels like they belong – we can focus our time, talents and experience on tackling the toughest problems in our industry. We stand to meet that challenge and have created a strategic framework centered around our People, our Customers and our Community, to guide our journey.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) focus on our employees and enable our leaders to listen and learn together. Ultimately, they foster a work environment that includes and embraces racial, ethnic, and gender diversity and other individual differences that ultimately allow employees to bring their Total Selves to work. Our ERGs are voluntary, employee led, and Company supported. They aim to build community and solve business problems while cultivating leadership skills. Syneos Health employees join ERGs to:
Our Asian ERG connects individuals from various cultures. This gives an opportunity for enthusiastic interactions and to learn more from the group.

The Developing Professionals ERG is about continuous growth. It’s about us knowing that we have some growing to do and making an effort to grow. It’s about us helping each other to grow, about us helping each other to reach the goals that we are passionate about.

The DNA ERG has the possibility to push the learning process, while also ensuring LGBTQIA+ people feel safe, respected, and heard. Additionally, the ERG is a place to harbor community which is so essential nowadays. I am excited to see this aspect grow and develop.
The Persons with Disabilities ERG mission and objectives include:
Senior Strategic Writer; Persons with Disabilities ERG Co-Lead
Disabilities touch all of our lives; they are a universal part of the human experience, one of which perfectly dovetails with Syneos Health’s work and mission to bring life-changing therapies to patients. The Persons with Disabilities Employee Resource Group recognizes this special connection, and through our internal sessions focused on disability and sport, caregiving and neurodiversity, we will provide a space for our colleagues to share their stories.
Research shows that 60-80 percent of recently served veterans leave their first job outside of the military within two years. That’s why it’s so important for our ERG to invite all veterans, military family members, and allies to join our ERG and to promote a sense of community and belonging.
Business Operations Director
At Syneos Health we are encouraged to bring our Total Self to work. And by that, I mean we have a positive, true, trusting environment that leads to true work with all types of diversity. And actively being authentic at work allows us all to be creative, productive, while still remaining focused on what we’re intending to do. It is also knowing or just admitting when you are having a bad day and creating a safe space for others to do the same when they aren’t perhaps, feeling so good about themselves.
The ERG has grown consistently year after year, globally launching communities across EMEA, India and Latin America.
AD Sales Enablement Operations
The Women’s ERG has created a channel for me to connect with colleagues outside of my department to not only be supported and provide support but also to spread awareness and open discussions on issues that women experience. It’s so important to me that we create a space to advocate for, lift each other up, and remind one another to give ourselves grace.
