Great Colleges To Work For 2012
By Josh Fischman and Benjamin Pokross
Open channels of communication, along with concrete ways of appreciating employees and helping them balance work and home, are hallmarks of great academic workplaces. At colleges, such policies have become more important as a slow national economy delays or shrinks raises, according to The Chronicle’s 2012 “Great Colleges to Work For” survey, which identifies 103 outstanding institutions across the country.
At the same time, the report reveals that academe still struggles to find ways to show respect for employees. In that category—one of 12 areas measured by the survey—even colleges that did well got lower ratings from their employees than did colleges recognized in other areas, such as providing a good teaching environment.
