About the Great Place To Work certification

We believe the voice of the employee is most important. That’s why this certification is 100% based on the Trust Index™ employee survey. This survey consists of 60 statements on various themes. With this survey, we measure trust, pride and fun in organizations.

These are the requirements for certification:

  • A score of 70% or higher on the Trust Index;
  • A minimum response rate;
  • A completed Culture Brief™.

The certificate is valid for one year. Organizations with the highest scores on the Trust Index have a chance to make the Best Workplaces™ list.

Working at Alnylam

This is the moment to say Challenge Accepted! At Alnylam, we are driven by our mission to translate the Nobel Prize-winning discovery of RNA interference (RNAi) into an innovative, new class of medicines. We’re motivated in this endeavor by the bravery and perseverance of people with unmet medical needs who live with rare and genetic diseases. They are the focus of our efforts, and we exist as a company because of them. That knowledge and commitment to patients is present in everything we do, every day.

We are growing quickly and hiring across North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America for a wide variety of roles. We’re seeking smart, passionate, “change the world” kind of people who are ready to say, “challenge accepted.” Our 1,400 (and counting!) employees are building a diverse, inclusive, and high-performing global organization that celebrates team achievement and recognizes individual contributions.
