PAREXEL International Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXL), a leading global biopharmaceutical services organization, today announced that for the second year in a row, Forbes has named the Company to its America's "Best Employers" list. The list recognizes the top 300 midsized employers and top 500 large employers. Results are based on anonymous survey responses from 30,000 U.S. employees, with the most weighted factor being how likely they were to recommend their organizations to others. "Receiving this recognition for the second consecutive year is a testament to our efforts to advance investments in developing our people, and we are pleased to see that reflected in strong feedback from employees," said Michelle Graham, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, PAREXEL.

PAREXEL is committed to investing in its people and fostering an environment in which employees are engaged and empowered to do their best work in an effort to deliver for clients.

About the Forbes America's Best Employers List MethodologyNow in its third year, the Forbes ranking of America's Best Employers is drawn from an online survey of more than 30,000 employees at companies with at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation. The mix of respondents (gender, age, region, and ethnicity) in the sample represents American employees. Each employee surveyed was asked to rank both his own employer and other employers in the same industry sector. Employees were also asked how likely they were to recommend their organization to friends or family; this was the most important factor in determining a company's ranking on the list.
