Why Action Research?

The Action Research team is a talented and supportive group of conservationists, bird watchers, surfers, hikers, travelers, musicians, and beach volleyball players who love making a difference in local communities every day. We celebrate each other’s birthdays and work anniversaries, step in on projects when others need a hand, and are proud of the work we do together.

We don’t just hire our staff to follow orders. No matter if you’re an associate or a director, your voice isn’t only heard, it’s expected. Our people are our best assets, and we are so proud of the team we’ve built. Think you’re a good fit? We’d love to hear from you!


We take care of our team members so they can enjoy what they do on and off the clock.

Our Commitments

Office Sustainability Commitment

Our commitments to safe, healthy, and sustainable communities are not only reflected in the clients we work with, but also in our daily choices. All employees sign a personal pledge to commit to living and working sustainably, and our office is strategically located just a few blocks from a light rail station that links with bus, rail, and trolley transportation options.

Volunteer Time-Off Program

All employees can take 16 hours off annually to volunteer at a nonprofit organization of their choice! Participating in philanthropic activities enriches our lives, and helps us get closer to our goal of promoting safe, healthy, and sustainable communities.
