Keysight's Awards

Forbes names Keysight one of America's best employers

The 2017 Forbes Best Employers list includes Keysight as one of the best employers in America with 5,000 or more workers. Forbes worked with research firm Statista to compile the definitive list based on the results of Statista's survey of 30,000 American workers' opinions of their respective employers.

On a scale of zero to ten, the survey asked how likely employees were to recommend their organization to friends or family. Those results were the most important factor in determining a company’s ranking on this list. Keysight ranked 259 out of 500 U.S. companies included in this year’s list.

“We’re proud of this recognition from Forbes. The passion, insight and expertise of our employees are a critical part of Keysight’s success," said Shireen Donaldson, human resources vice president. "The fact that employees are eager to recommend Keysight to others is evidence of the pride that many of us feel as Keysight employees.”
