Community Impact

We believe in doing good and support employees who want to give back to the community. Every employee receives a half day paid time off each quarter for volunteer work or service in the community. Research Square also matches charitable donations when employees/teams participate in fundraising efforts for qualified non-profit organizations. Additionally, the company has a “do good” fund, which it uses to help financially-struggling researchers find success.

There is no accrued sick time and you do not need to use PTO or unpaid time off. We cover your salary, with some exceptions, for short and occasional illness-related absences.

We are a NC Breastfeeding Coalition Breastfeeding-Friendly Employer and have been featured as a family-friendly business by Family Forward NC. We offer competitive paid leave, flexible work schedules, a private, updated mother’s room at our Durham office, and family-friendly events that allow you to focus on your family.
