BEVERLY, Mass., July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Endicott College is a great college to work for, according to a new survey released by The Chronicle of Higher Education in its ninth annual report on The Academic Workplace.
Endicott won honors in nine out of 12 categories this year: Collaborative Governance; Compensation & Benefits; Confidence in Senior Leadership; Facilities, Workspace & Security; Job Satisfaction; Professional/Career Development Programs; Respect and Appreciation; Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship; and Teaching Environment (Faculty Only). Endicott is also once again one of 42 institutions on the Honor Roll.
Last year Endicott was listed in six categories – the new recognitions are Job Satisfaction, Professional/ Career Development, and Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship.
"Endicott has grown tremendously over the past 20 years, but it's always been important for us to keep the small-town feel as we expand," said Endicott College President Richard E. Wylie. "You can really feel it when you step onto campus – each of our dedicated employees and phenomenal faculty are an integral part of an interconnected family. When people care about each other, when they know they are a part of every triumph, success transfers to something much bigger, and I think that really stands out in these survey results."
Only 93 of the 281 colleges and universities that applied for the program achieved "Great College to Work For" recognition: 68 four-year institutions and 25 two-year institutions. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with Endicott included among the medium universities with 3,000 to 9,999 students.
The 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.
