Diversity And Inclusion

We’re always listening and learning. At Syneos Health, we share the same values inclusive of respect of all of our colleagues. We embrace and celebrate all of our differences. We are passionate about attracting and retaining an exceptional, diverse workforce. This is authentically who we are.

We take pride in creating an environment where our employees – of all backgrounds and beliefs – are encouraged to bring their Total Selves to work each day. This includes encouraging all employees to embrace our Total Self culture.


We celebrate our talent, we live our Values and we won’t tolerate discrimination of any type.

To support these efforts, we are committed to creating a diverse, inclusive and safe environment that fosters innovation and professional growth. We focus our efforts on three areas:

Diversity & Inclusion

Syneos Health celebrates you for simply being you. We are continuously building the company we all want to work for. Our colleagues are strategic thinkers who actively seek different perspectives, whether across offices or across oceans. We believe that addressing complex healthcare challenges requires contributions from diverse viewpoints and an inclusive space where each individual is able to thrive. Syneos Health is built on equal opportunity, fair employment and recruiting practices, and a culture that celebrates a spectrum of values and perspectives — creating richer experiences that benefit employees, customers and patients.

Health & Safety

Our employees come first. At Syneos Health, the total health and safety of our employees —emotional, physical, and social wellbeing — is essential in ensuring everyone is equipped to lead satisfying and healthy professional and personal lives. We encourage an overall community wellbeing for our employees focused around three pillars:

EMOTIONAL WELLBEING: Supporting your mental health – taking care of YOU

PHYSICAL WELLBEING: Supporting your body's health and fitness

SYNEOS HEALTH COMMUNITY WELLBEING: Supporting positive team dynamics and maintaining connections

Our goal is to empower each of our employees to bring their Total Self to work. Being and sharing who they are each day, in each interaction.

Growth & Recognition

We inspire each other. As a services company, our employees fuel our business and we realize that motivated and engaged employees are the single biggest driver of our success. Recognizing our employees and providing them with growth opportunities is at the core of our culture.


Our Employee Resource Groups

When we bring together diversity of thought, backgrounds, cultures, beliefs, and perspectives – we’re able to build a place where everyone belongs. These past several months have brought us closer together to share how we feel, who we are and to be open to asking for support when we need it. One of the ways we’re bringing this to life is with our own Employee Resource Group (ERG) communities – created by employees and led by employees.

These communities are available to everyone at Syneos Health. Joining them provides an opportunity for fellowship surrounding a shared cause, networking, and growth: both professionally and personally. Your voices are critical in informing us how we can ensure inclusion and best serve all of our employees.

We’re on a journey and are actively working to build these groups internally and look forward to expanding and evolving representation inside Syneos Health.
