We see the world through data
Westat began as a visionary startup in 1963. Now, 50+ years later with 1,700 employees, we continue to pioneer new ways to support the changing needs of clients. Our unique collaborative culture enables us to create dynamic multifaceted teams with broad experience across a wide range of topics.
Westat is 100% employee-owned. Our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) allows staff to earn stock and share in company profits. We believe that employee ownership has been a key factor in our growth—we share a commitment to excellence and support each other in our mission to provide the best solutions for our clients. Our engagement in our work can and does make a difference in our success.
Innovation is all part of a day’s work
You may not see our name in the news, but Westat supports research behind many federal, state, local, and foundation studies.
