PA College named a “2015 GREAT COLLEGE TO WORK FOR”
August 3, 2015
LANCASTER, PA – Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education.
The results released in The Chronicle’s eighth annual report on The Academic Workplace are based on a survey of employees at 281 colleges and universities from across the U.S. PA College received recognition in the work/life balance category, which focuses on the workplace and policies that give employees the flexibility to manage their personal lives.
“We are so thrilled to once again receive this recognition and be ranked among the greatest colleges to work for! Our commitment to workplace quality and employee engagement shows we are getting it right, particularly with work/life balance. PA College employees are our most valuable contributors to successful workplace strategies, so it is highly important for the College to offer to its employees a great working environment,” said Vice President of Human Resources, Nancy Florey.
College staff member, Sarah Mongeau, said, “From little things like a dentist appointment or an oil change, to the big things like an illness in the family, the College provides the flexibility its employees need to have fulfilling lives both in and out of the workplace.”
The Chronicle’s 2015 Great Colleges to Work For® program recognizes small groups of colleges (based on enrollment size) for specific best practices and policies. 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.
