As a global community, Abt celebrates and thrives on different perspectives, cultures, expertise, and points of view. We go beyond making a positive impact through our work; we seek to make a positive impact at work, where staff are encouraged to contribute and grow personally as well as professionally.
A diverse staff enriches Abt's ability to fulfill our mission, and diversity is now explicitly identified as a core company value. We are each responsible for living our Diversity value and are guided by the following statements:
Growth from within is an important principle at Abt, and we are dedicated to the development and success of our staff. From continuous performance feedback to guided career paths, learning opportunities, and mentoring, we continue to take a comprehensive approach to nurturing our talent.
Crossing disciplines, methodologies, and geographies, Abt's Market and Capability Centers were established to be catalysts of innovation and collaboration, drivers of growth, and stewards of Abt's institutional knowledge. The Centers enable us to bring the breadth of our capabilities to all clients in all markets we serve. In addition to working closely with divisions to attract new and exciting work, Abt Centers organize forums for staff to engage with one another, share knowledge, and develop professionally across projects and geographies. This year, Abt’s Centers held 62 technical training and learning events covering topics ranging from digital solutions to service delivery challenges to perspectives on race and evaluation.
