The FRT Culture
Creating an inclusive working environment for all of our employees. It’s the diverse perspectives and experiences of our team that help us think differently and come up with market-changing technology. So we’re committed to improving representation at our company, as well as in our industry and regions around the world. We run a number of programs designed to engage and empower people at every level, and foster an environment in which all of our colleagues feel welcomed, valued, and included––inside and outside the office.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
Our ERGs are spaces for employees with shared identities or common experiences to come together and create connections, share support and information, and ultimately advance a respectful and caring community. All employees are welcome to participate in any ERG - all voluntarily led. Here are some of the ways they’re working to make FRT a great place to work for all:
People of Color ERG
Engages and empowers all employees, while fostering a culture of inclusion through professional development, career management, mentoring and networking. This group recently hosted an educational seminar for Juneteenth, followed by lunch catered by a local black-owned restaurant.
Known as True Colors, this group strives to deliver and maintain a welcoming, safe, and equitable environment for the LGBTQ community, raising awareness, taking action and unapologetically celebrating together. In honor of Pride Month they recently donated to organizations supporting LGBTQI+ initiatives in Boston, London, Sydney and New York.
Brings female FRT employees together to share experiences and provides opportunities for professional and personal development. Through this group, employees have the chance to attend the Massachusetts Conference for Women to learn and connect beyond our team.
Supports and celebrates the cultural diversity at FRT, represented by people from around the world. In collaboration with our Environmental Council, they recently hosted a movie night and discussion to watch Honeyland – a Macedonian documentary film, and plans are underway for an International Pot Luck supper.
Works to ensure the needs of all who balance their roles as FRT employees and as caregivers to others outside of work are identified and met. Their latest breakfast event brought together the group to share resources and advice.
“ As the CEO, it is my job to ensure a clear vision as to who we are and where we want to go. Our commitment to being a diverse, equitable, and inclusive company is a key part of our vision; it is infused into our core values and is an explicit component of the multiyear picture for our future. ”

Our Commitment to our Communities
The FRT sense of community extends beyond our team, through volunteer opportunities and social events that aim to strengthen internal and external relationships. Every employee gets one day a year of paid volunteer time, and employees in every region lead initiatives and get involved with charities and causes to give back to local communities. Some of their recent activities include volunteering at women’s shelters, packing backpacks for children going back to school, reviewing resumes, and delivering food to older adults.
