Indiana Tech named a 2020 Great College to Work For

September 22, 2020

Indiana Tech 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 in the Sept. 18 special section of The Chronicle of Higher Education, are based on a survey of 221 colleges and universities nationwide. 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 Indiana Tech included among medium universities with 3,000 to 9,999 students.

Indiana Tech is one of only two colleges in Indiana to be recognized this year. Indiana Tech won honors in three categories:

• Compensation & Benefits
• Confidence in Senior Leadership
• Facilities, Workspace & Security

Indiana Tech president Dr. Karl Einolf commented, “Our team shares a commitment to excellence in educating students from all walks of life, for all kinds of meaningful work. Every team member helps ensure that Indiana Tech is an inclusive community of learners, and that students are supported, inspired and empowered to maximize their professional prospects, advance in their careers, and improve their lives and the lives of others. It’s encouraging to see this recognition of our team’s shared effort to make this a great place to work—a place where our work is filled with purpose and opportunities to grow.”

The survey results are 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.
