For the third year in a row, Lee University has been named one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education.The results, released today in The Chronicle’s seventh annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,000 employees at 278 colleges and universities.Lee University was one of 42 institutions who achieved “Honor Roll” status in the 2014 rankings. In all, 92 of the 278 institutions achieved overall “Great College to Work For®” recognition for specific best practices and policies.“It makes me proud to be on the Honor Roll again,” said Chris Conine, vice president for Business and Finance. “I have always felt that Lee University is a special place, but knowing the rest of the higher education community sees us this way is truly affirming.”The Chronicle ranks schools on twelve categories, and Lee earned exceptional ratings in ten out of twelve:- Collaborative Governance- Professional/Career-Development Programs- Teaching Environment- Facilities, Workspace & Security- Job Satisfaction- Confidence in Senior Leadership- Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship- Respect and Appreciation- Tenure Clarity and Process- Work-life balance“This is a great program, because it helps us to receive feedback on how we are doing as employers,” said Ann McElrath, director of Human Resources at Lee. “Each member of the Lee team is top-notch at what they do, and this survey lets us know they are happy doing it here.”“The institutions that the Great Colleges program recognizes provide innovative educational experiences – while also offering their employees outstanding workplace experiences – and we are eager to help readers learn more about them,” said Liz McMillen, The Chronicle’s editor.The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics 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.To administer the survey and analyze the results, The Chronicle worked with ModernThink LLC, a strategic human capital consulting firm that has conducted numerous “Best Places to Work” programs, surveying hundreds of thousands of employees nationwide.Great Colleges to Work For® is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country.
