Loma Linda University is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to 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 194 colleges and universities. In all, 72 of those 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 included among the medium universities with 3,000 to 9,999 students.
Loma Linda University won honors in eight of the program’s 10 categories this year:
- Job Satisfaction & Support;
- Compensation & Benefits;
- Professional Development;
- Mission & Pride;
- Confidence in Senior Leadership;
- Faculty & Staff Well-being;
- Faculty Experience;
- Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging
Loma Linda University was also named to the Great Colleges Honor Roll, a status granted to only 42 colleges each year who are highlighted most across the recognition categories.
“This affirmation recognizes our longstanding commitment to providing a workplace community that values the contributions and well-being of every employee,” said Richard Hart, MD, DrPH, president of Loma Linda University Health.
The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institution questionnaire that captures 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.
