Lynn University earned recognition as one of the nation's Great Colleges to Work For in a survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education, a trade publication for colleges and universities.
The results, released today in The Chronicle's ninth annual report on the academic workplace, are based on a survey of 281 colleges and universities. Only 93 of the institutions that applied for the program achieved recognition.
Lynn was listed in the small universities category, which recognizes colleges with 2,999 students or fewer, and won honors in four categories: Compensation and Benefits, Respect and Appreciation, Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship, and Work/Life Balance.
The Great Colleges to Work For program is one of the largest and most respected workplace recognitions in the United States, according to The Chronicle.
Survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. Employee feedback was the primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition.
To administer the survey and analyze results, The Chronicle worked with ModernThink LLC, a strategic human capital consulting firm that has conducted numerous "Best Places to Work" programs.
