Life at Catalyst

Catalyst brings together smart, talented people from diverse backgrounds

Our Values

We believe that a successful organization embodies a diverse and inclusive culture. Here at Catalyst, we don’t just accept diversity—we celebrate, support and thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our workplace, and our community. Without the unique perspectives of each one of our staff members, we wouldn't be able to live out our values: Connect, Engage, Inspire, Impact. 


Our forward-thinking, friendly work atmosphere and extensive benefits provide the support our people need to meet their work and life goals. Our benefits are part of who we are, and they’re designed to take care of the whole you to help keep you physically, emotionally, and financially healthy.

We want to make your life better and easier.

Catalyst strives to be an employer of choice, and flexibility is a critical tool to achieve this end. Understanding and creating a flexible work environment is central to our mission and our work, and it is reflected in all our work practices. Adapting work schedules to fit the work and personal lives of Catalyst employees is increasingly important given our growing global workforce. We have seen that flexibility can help extend staff coverage, meet member needs, reduce employee absenteeism, increase productivity, improve morale, and ultimately help Catalyst work toward our mission.  

Catalyst believes in work-life effectiveness, and offers generous paid time off to ensure work-life balance. All permanent staff members receive personal days, sick days, vacation, winter break, holidays, and even a day off for their birthdays.

We want our benefits to work for you.

Your interests and needs evolve over your lifetime. Likewise, we evaluate our benefits regularly and adapt them to the requirements of our changing population. You are valuable to us, and our benefits demonstrate that.

We care about you and your family.

Our benefit packages exist to make sure that you are taken care of. Your family matters to you, so they’re important to us. We have a number of benefit programs to support you and your loved ones through life’s various stages and challenges.
