BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–O’Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, today announced it has been named to the 2024 Top 100 Inspiring Workplaces in North America list for the second consecutive year. Presented on behalf of the Inspiring Workplaces Group (IW), the awards recognize best-performing organizations that have created a positive and inclusive work culture for their employees. O’Reilly earned two notable rankings, placing fifth overall and taking the number one spot in the Medium-sized Organizations category.

“Employees are a company’s greatest asset, which is why O’Reilly prioritizes putting our people first,” said Jeanne Cordisco, chief people officer at O’Reilly. “For over 45 years, we’ve inspired individuals to do new things and do things better by providing them with the skills and understanding that are necessary for long-term business prosperity. That same philosophy applies to our own employees so that we can drive growth, innovation, and long-term business success. Our unshakable commitment to establishing a strong learning and family-first culture empowers our team to push beyond the status quo as they remain engaged, motivated, and fulfilled. We’re humbled and honored to be recognized as one of the top inspiring workplaces in North America.”

Entrants to the Inspiring Workplace Awards were asked to provide proof of their investment in people across six key elements including culture and purpose, leadership, well-being, inclusion, employee voice, and employee experience. The Top 100 winners were decided by an independent expert judging panel.

According to IW judges, O’Reilly stood out for its measurable impact in enhancing the lives of its people. Through thoughtful consideration in creating programs and experiences that incorporate the employee voice, O’Reilly has created a place of belonging and support for growth within the organization. With access to ongoing feedback from management and a highly accessible executive team, employees are not only able, but encouraged, to share their ideas, voice their concerns, and be heard through initiatives such as Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), an “open door” policy, a robust mentorship program, and quarterly All Hands Meetings.

Employees also enjoy a high degree of flexibility in their schedules. As a fully remote company, employees have the freedom to do work in a way that complements their personal lives, whether they are balancing children, taking care of elderly family members, or carrying out other obligations. O’Reilly also provides opportunities for employees to work anywhere internationally for one month.

“As the world seems to be facing more widespread and serious challenges, it is more vital than ever for organizations (big and small) to put their people first,” said Matt Manners, founder of the Inspiring Workplaces Group. “Focusing on the personal development and caring for the people you employ will not only drive performance but protect the well-being of those individuals. Doing so company-wide will lead to higher-performing teams and enable your organization to outstrip the competition. Being people-first isn’t a nice-to-have, it’s a business imperative.”

O’Reilly has team members in 11 countries around the world, with more being added on a continual basis. For those interested in learning more about the career opportunities at O’Reilly, please visit www.oreilly.com/careers.
