Rollins College Named a “2014 Great College to Work For”

For the sixth consecutive year, Rollins is named a “Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Rollins College is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education. This is the sixth consecutive year the College has received the honor.

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. Rollins was honored among the medium-sized universities with 3,000-9,999 students.

“This recognition reflects the total commitment of our leadership, faculty, and staff to creating and maintaining the workplace conditions that enable us to succeed at the highest levels in support of the students we serve,” says Matt Hawks, director of human resources.

In all, only 92 of the 278 institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies. Rollins was named to the Honor Roll for achieving high marks in multiple categories, and the College was recognized in eight categories this year:

  • Satisfaction with compensation and benefits
  • Facilities, workspace, and security
  • Job satisfaction
  • Professional/career development programs
  • Respect and appreciation
  • Supervisor/department chair relationship
  • Tenure clarity and process
  • Work/life balance

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.

Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. Find more information Rollins’ recognition and view all the results of the survey, visit The Chronicle’s website. Learn more about the College's human resources department.
