Forrester's benefit philosophy is to offer highly competitive and comprehensive benefits programs that are designed to provide excellent health, welfare, time-off, and retirement plan coverage for employees and their families. We engage employees by providing choice in plans, promoting healthy lifestyles, and ensuring financial well-being. While sharing a core philosophy, our benefit plans are tailored to local country norms and competitive needs.

Learning And Development
We are highly committed to growing the business by developing your professional skills. Our learning and development team creates and delivers relevant, timely, and engaging experiences. We challenge participants in a safe and fun environment with an emphasis on providing training that you can apply immediately in your current job — and in your future positions with Forrester. This is demonstrated by four core program areas:
- New-hire onboarding. A specialist greets you on your first day and orients you to the company and your new position. After your initial orientation, a three-day immersion in all things Forrester broadens your knowledge of our business.
- Core skills and function-specific offerings. Core skills programs help early-career Forresterites brush up on their capabilities so that they can be even more effective in their position. Function-specific training supports teams through business skills development and reinforcement.
- Research training. Specifically tailored to our research teams, ongoing development programs help analysts sharpen their thinking, focus their writing on the needs of our client roles, and hone their presentation and facilitation skills.
- Leadership development. As a Forrester leader of teams or large projects, you'll receive targeted development to build your success. Personalized feedback and skill-building opportunities are featured in our leadership development curriculum.
People. Passion. Possibilities. At Forrester, your professional growth is our priority. Beginning on day one and continuing through your career at Forrester, you'll engage in targeted programs that will hone your sales skills, help you guide better executive-level conversations, and build your credibility. And an interactive social community for our sales team facilitates sharing best practices with your peers, and gives you access to tools, training, and content. But we don't just focus on making you immediately productive — we also nurture your future development and career advancement by developing training programs based on our companywide competency benchmark standards. It's what makes our sales force so successful.
