Make Your Mark!

NSF’s mission is to protect and improve global human health. People and organizations look to us to help develop public health standards and provide certifications. Our blue-and-white logo — the NSF “mark of approval” — helps protect food, water, consumer products and the environment. Thanks to our mission, our supportive global community and our healthy, inclusive culture, NSF team members get to make their own mark — on the organization and on human and planet health. We wake up each day knowing we’re making the world a little better by helping to solve complex global challenges.

Make the World a Safer Place

Whether it’s making sure water is fit to drink, people stay safe during a pandemic or restaurants follow food regulations — and much more besides — NSF employees help make the world safer. It’s not just what we do, but how we do it. Our work is backed by science and data, and we’re trusted by customers across many countries and industries. We continually reinvest in our mission to make a bigger social impact and all team members are encouraged to do the right thing and to challenge our customers — and each other — to keep getting better.

Fabiane shares her experience with NSF's career development opportunities and the impact of our mission.

From Stellenbosch to São Paulo

NSF team members help build our truly global community and embrace international opportunities. We have more than 50 locations in 32 countries, and our team members speak more than 30 languages. Working here means understanding different perspectives and cultures, sharing knowledge with talented colleagues, and collaborating with well-known customers in locations ranging from Stellenbosch to São Paulo, Ypsilanti and Shanghai — and many places in between. Flexible working solutions (depending on role) include hybrid as well as cloud- and hub-based options.

Well-Being and Better Ways of Working

We have a healthy, inclusive culture that promotes well-being. Our global Employee Assistance Program provides free confidential support for real-life situations, like parenting, mental health challenges, home buying and more. Our Future of Work project pioneers better ways of working that empower NSF people around the world. So far, team members have helped launch Meeting-Free Fridays, a Mental Wellness Day and other initiatives related to balance and well-being. Volunteering opportunities help team members give back and prioritize wellness. Paid time off, health care and other benefits (according to location) mean team members can balance work and life, while market-leading on-the-job training and tuition assistance contribute to personal development.

Donald shares his passion for working with NSF's customers - using science-based data and methodologies not only to help them - but to help make the world a better place.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

One of our core values is We Are One NSF. This means that while we’re one team, we embrace the cultural, ethnic, language and demographic diversity that reflects the societies in which we live and work. We all bring unique perspectives and strive to work collaboratively to improve human and planet health. Creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture isn’t just the right thing to do. It’s also the smart thing. It empowers us to innovate, build deeper connections with our customers and, ultimately, to make our mark as a global team.

We strive to create a workplace where team members have a sense of belonging, feel heard and are supported. We celebrate our differences through team member stories – you can see some of them here on this page. We have the strength of a globally and culturally diverse team living in nearly 30 countries and working in more than 100. We are also proud that women represent 55% of our global leadership roles and 61% of our global team as of January 2023.
