American Institutes for Research
Location: Washington, DC
The American Institutes for Research (AIR) is one of the leading behavioral and social science research organizations in the world. Our overriding goal is to use the best science available to bring the most effective ideas and approaches to enhancing everyday life. For us, making the world a better place is not wishful thinking. It is the goal that drives us. Founded in 1946 as a not-for-profit organization, we conduct our work with strict independence, objectivity, and non-partisanship. The intellectual diversity of our 1,600 employees enables us to bring together experts from many fields in the search for innovative answers to any challenge.
AIR's Workforce and Lifelong Learning group has been at the forefront of applied research to enhance the performance of individuals and organizations. AIR has focused on this critical need for over 60 years since our founder, John Flanagan, began developing combat pilot selection procedures to identify candidates who were best suited for these high-stress jobs.
Through innovative research and the application of evidence-based practices, AIR’s Workforce and Lifelong Learning group supports the development of high performance individuals, teams, and organizations. Our work encompasses the entire life cycle—workforce preparedness, recruitment, selection, performance management, training, retention, and more—and provides our public and private sector clients with unique insight and solutions. Our experts apply research-based principles in developing the knowledge, tools, systems, and programs required for maximizing human and organizational potential in the 21st century.
