Mission: Improving the human condition by turning knowledge into practice.
Our staffing partner Headway Resources has an immediate need for 300+ RTI Field Representative/Data Collector positions. This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking for meaningful part-time work!
Public knowledge and perception of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) can help shape the federal, state, and local governments’ response to the pandemic and indicate whether those strategies are effective. RTI surveyed over 2,000 Americans in April 2020 to capture their awareness of COVID-19, their understanding of how the virus is transmitted, and their levels of support for potential community mitigation strategies. The survey was weighted to reflect the U.S. population. In this four-part webinar series, we will share the outcomes from the RTI-funded survey and provide a detailed analysis of the implications from that data.
For more than 25 years, RTI International experts have helped clients build resilient health systems and improve public health. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working quickly to lessen its impact. Although COVID-19 is a novel virus presenting unprecedented challenges, RTI offers broad and deep experience to address a variety of public health threats—including Ebola, Zika, tuberculosis, malaria, and HIV—and improving the underlying systems where they occur and the effects they leave in their wake.
Expert Perspectives on Coronavirus & COVID-19:
Our IMPACT is defined by the results of the projects we tackle on behalf of clients around the world. We share our findings through peer-reviewed publications, presentations at scientific conferences, and public release to the media.
Each year, our researchers are published in more than 600 journal articles, reports, conference proceedings, books, chapters and other publications. As scientists, researchers and thought leaders, contributing to the advancement of our fields comes second only to the pursuit of our mission. Through these efforts, we strive to communicate the results of our independent, objective research as a way of advancing our understanding of the world and informing decisions that will carry us into a better future.
We view each project—regardless of size—as an opportunity to drive positive change through new information, best practices, novel methods, and an integrated, multidisciplinary approach. No matter what our projects demand or where they take us, we bring a deep commitment to exceeding our clients’ expectations and a strong sense of mission shared
We maintain offices around the world to support our ongoing projects and the evolving needs of our clients and the communities and individuals they serve. We have designed and implemented projects in more than 140 countries and have more than 50 years of international experience.
Embracing the differing worldviews created by diverse backgrounds
At RTI we recognize that diverse backgrounds inform different views that help create a hub of ideas that drive our pursuit of world-changing innovations. Our cultural, ethnic, gender and intellectual diversity helps generate opportunities to foster creative solutions and teamwork.
Fulfilling our potential through respect, equity and value
From our research, to community involvement, to outreach, we apply our principles of diversity and inclusion globally at every level and function of our organization. Our commitment to honoring these principles has helped us create a diverse team that uses an inclusive environment as a springboard to improving the human condition. We have also turned a lens on ourselves, reaching out to employees to ask for their views on diversity and inclusion at RTI and how they would like to see their organization grow.
The result of our efforts? Skyrocketing employee engagement and a leadership culture shift unlike ever before. When our staff sees something they think doesn’t live up to the diversity and inclusion (D&I) ideals we’ve set forth, we encourage them to not only say something but to do something. Some of these workplace champions see their work commemorated with a D&I in Action award, while others benefit from the overarching improvements to the RTI community.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide employees with opportunities to network and engage in advocacy
Each of our ERGs serves as a community in which members voluntarily contribute their shared knowledge and collective experiences to enhance professional growth, promote multicultural understanding, and positively affect the RTI mission. The ERGs offer a forum for members to discuss relevant challenges and opportunities, and they enable joint efforts around common areas of interest. ERG activities include hosting speaker series, performing community service, organizing and attending professional development conferences, and leading diversity celebrations.

I have been working at RTI International full-time (More than 3 years)
A community of extremely bright and talented people, and an institution that focuses on being a great place to work. The best leadership team I've ever worked for. RTI places a lot of value on building and maintaining a healthy working atmosphere where you can be valued as an individual and where you can enjoy a workplace free from annoyances (harassment etc.). Lots of places have a values statement, but this is the only place I've ever worked where management at every level strives to make it a part of the day-to-day culture. It's the kind of place where a random VP or the CEO sits with you at lunch and wants to know how to improve on what we're doing.
Like any big organization, experiences can vary across divisions and working groups. Like any big organization you can get lost unless you make an effort to connect and develop working relationships outside of your business unit.
Advice to Management
Keep it up!
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at RTI International (Durham, NC) in March 2020.
I was contacted by the recruiter for a phone screen 2 weeks after submitting my application (describe your interest in the position & RTI, qual/quant research experience, salary expectations, ideal start date). The next day she requested my availability to set up an interview, which consisted of meeting with 7 team members for 30 minutes each. Mostly behavioral questions and my career goals/how this position fits into that. Everyone was very nice, though some seemed more excited to talk to me than others. Immediately after the interview I got an automated email to fill out supplemental information, including references. 2 weeks after my interview, the recruiter extended an offer via the phone, and gave me the weekend to accept/decline.
