Amtrak Awarded Forbes Best Large Employer Status

WASHINGTON – Amtrak was honored for workplace excellence, earning a spot on the Forbes 2024 list as one of America’s Best Employers. Received for nine consecutive years, this achievement comes as Amtrak builds a workforce to modernize infrastructure, major stations and trains — setting in motion a new era of rail that will change the way America moves.

“It is heartening to receive this award as we build a new generation of expertise that powers our growth,” said Amtrak Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Robert Grasty. “Amtrak always strives to give employees a positive work experience. We continue to create new programs and design key initiatives aimed at retaining the talented men and women in this company.”

Amtrak hired 4,800 new employees in 2023, increasing the company’s workforce to more than 23,000. This growth comes as Amtrak advances critical infrastructure work, improves safety, reliability and accessibility, enhances the customer experience and launches new and expanded service. Forbes identified the Best Employers through an independent survey with a sample size of more than 170,000 U.S. workers at companies of at least 1,000 within the U.S. The final score is based on direct evaluations among employees as well as friends and family members of employees, or members of the public who work in the same industry.
