  Estimated read time:

ARDMORE, Okla. — Noble Research Institute has been recognized as one of the 2020 Top Workplaces in Oklahoma among large-sized companies.

Noble placed No. 7 among Oklahoma companies that have 350 or more employees. This year — which is Noble’s 75th anniversary — marks the first time the organization has participated in the Top Workplaces competition.

The Top Workplaces award is given based on “organizational health,” as determined by an independent, third-party assessment that includes an anonymous survey of employees who rate their workplace culture.

“This ranking means so much because it comes directly from our employees,” said Steve Rhines, president and CEO. “We are proud of the incredible work they do every day at Noble as we strive to support agriculture and serve farmers and ranchers through research, education and consultation. In addition, we are honored to be included among the many great organizations and companies that represent the best of the best in Oklahoma.”

The 2020 Top Workplaces committee received survey responses from 22,586 employees from 1,715 employers across the state of Oklahoma. From there, only 76 employers earned a spot on the Top Workplaces winner’s list (divided by small, mid-sized and large companies).

In addition to placing in the top 10 of the large-sized company list, Noble earned a special award for organizational communication, ranking the highest among all organizations on the list.

Noble is an independent, nonprofit agricultural research organization that serves farmers and ranchers through education, research and consultation. Noble’s multinational workforce consists of 370 employees from 22 countries.

Noble Research Institute, LLC (www.noble.org) is an independent nonprofit agricultural research organization dedicated to delivering solutions to great agricultural challenges. Headquartered in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Noble’s goal is to achieve land stewardship for improved soil health in grazing animal production with lasting producer profitability. Achievement of this goal will be measured by farmers and ranchers profitably regenerating hundreds of millions of acres of U.S. grazing lands. Noble aims to remove, mitigate or help producers avoid the barriers that deter the lasting use of regenerative, profitable land management practices in grazing animal production.

Researchers, consultants, educators and ranch staff work together to give farmers and ranchers the skills and tools to regenerate the land in a profitable manner. Noble researchers and educators seek and deliver answers to producer questions concerning regenerative management of pasture and range environments, wildlife, pecan production, and livestock production. Regenerative management recognizes that each decision made on the ranch impacts the interactions of the soil, plants, water, animals and producers. Noble’s 14,000 acres of working ranch lands provide a living laboratory on which to demonstrate and practice regenerative principles and ideas to deliver value to farmers and ranchers across the U.S.
