At New Balance, our job is to aid athletes in their pursuit of excellence, whether that means helping professional athletes set records and win medals, or propelling everyday athletes to achieve a new PR, run their first 5K or just to live a more healthy and active lifestyle. Our products are the perfect blend of function and fashion, giving you the performance technology you need and the style you want. Our associates around the world bring these goals to life with their high-level skills and creativity. While we offer the best product on the market, we’re also equally committed to giving back. So while we look to succeed, we believe in ensuring others have the same opportunity.
Our associates are our most important resource and we care about our people, their wellbeing and growth. New Balance benefits enable the well-being of our employees and their families in ways that matter to them including employee discount on our amazing products. Our associates can take advantage of our health and wellness resources, you’ll discover many more benefits of working at New Balance, such as programmes that support your charitable contributions and there are opportunities to participate in community volunteering. Each associate is encouraged to take ownership of their development, as they conquer their personal aspirations with development opportunities available across all locations.
