Amtrak has been recognized by Forbes as one of the country's "best large employers" on the magazine's 2023 list, the railroad announced yesterday.

The railroad's workforce of more than 20,000 employees includes 3,700 new hires in 2022, Amtrak officials said in a press release.

The magazine's list was compiled following an independent survey taken by nearly 45,000 American employees working for companies with more than 1,000 employees in the United States. A total of 500 employers were recognized across 25 industry sectors based on recommendations from respondents who were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employer to friends and family.

"We are actively recruiting and hiring thousands of additional people to join a challenging and rewarding environment where we lead with our values to do the right thing, put customers first and excel together," said Qiana Spain, Amtrak executive vice president and chief human resources officer.
