API’s employees take pride in being part of a professional, diverse team advancing an important mission in a fast-paced, rewarding environment. API’s leadership understands the value of investing in the long-term success of each team member, and our employees are empowered by ample opportunities for achievement and advancement.
There is no better way to learn about the culture of API than to hear from current employees. Here is what our employees are saying:
"It has been a great 16 years for me. I think the long tenure of API staff speaks to the work environment fostered by API." — Rolf H., Senior Director, 17 years of service
"API is a great place to work. The issues we work on are interesting, and the work we are doing matters. One of my main areas of focus is minority and female employment and STEM education. Helping people get good paying jobs, figuring out how to help more women and minority workers get into the industry, and encouraging more kids to focus on STEM disciplines are issues that are important to me, and matter in a huge way for the people we reach. When you know your work matters, and you’re supported by leaders who get that vision, you enjoy doing it." — Rebecca W., Analyst, 3 years of service
"We believe it’s more than just being a good neighbor"
Team API is a group of dedicated volunteer employees whose mission is to enhance community and camaraderie amongst the API workforce through active engagement with area charities, the organization of employee social events, and the promotion of fitness and healthy living.
From charitable contributions to reading to elementary school children during lunch breaks, API staff members are committed to getting involved and making a difference. Since 2011, API employees have contributed $295,000 to charities through Fueling our Community, API’s annual fundraising campaign, and other charity-focused events such as sponsored races, clothing donations, school supply and toy drives, Jeans Day and happy hour participation, and dinner receptions.
Team API organizes social events including API’s annual summer picnic and holiday party, and sponsors seasonal sports teams that run throughout the year, including kickball, bowling, soccer and others. Other activities such as wellness programs and walking challenges engage API staff and encourage a healthy lifestyle. All of these efforts foster camaraderie amongst API staff and grow and strengthen API’s community and culture.
