Loma Linda University is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Great Colleges to Work For® program.
The results, released today in a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education, are based on a survey of 221 colleges and universities. In all, 79 of the 221 institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with Loma Linda University among medium universities with 3,000 to 9,999 students.
Loma Linda University won honors in three categories this year: confidence in senior leadership, job satisfaction, and work/life balance.
“We’re pleased to receive this affirmation, which recognizes that we are a community that values the needs and contributions of every employee,” said Richard Hart, MD, DrPH, president of Loma Linda University.
The survey results were based on a two-part assessment process: an institution questionnaire that captured employment data and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.
The Great Colleges to Work For® program is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country.

“This year’s list of recognized institutions in the Great Colleges to Work For® program was united in their commitment to organizational culture, even in the face of a worldwide pandemic,” said Richard K. Boyer, a senior consultant at ModernThink. “They stand apart in their recognition that workplace culture can actually be a roadmap for navigating uncertainty.”
