What you should know

National Instruments supports initiatives that get young people interested in STEM, including its investment in the FIRST Robotics Competition. In 2011 when the FRC first came to China, 43 NI China employees volunteered to serve as robotics and engineering mentors to hundreds of students from 17 middle schools around the country. NI specifically seeks to address the knowledge gap that widens when students in underserved communities do not have access to the same technology as their peers.

NI also focuses on developing supportive people managers through its Supervisory Development Series (SDS). One of the SDS modules is called “Recognition is Free and Unlimited,” and it focuses on the importance of recognition. The goal is to catch employees doing something good, encourage positive behaviors, and integrate recognition into the culture of teams throughout the organization. NI has other programs that help nurture continual appreciation, such as the annual Marketing Excellence Awards event and the Sales Circle of Excellence program for outstanding and consistent performance.
