(Schriever, LA) – Fletcher Technical Community College (Fletcher) 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. This is Fletcher’s fourth consecutive year being recognized and the third time on the honor roll!
The results, released this month in a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education, are based on a survey of 194 colleges and universities. In all, 72 of those institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies.
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.
Fletcher received honor roll status in all (10) of the ten (10) following categories:
· Job Satisfaction & Support
· Compensation & Benefits
· Professional Development
· Mission & Pride
· Supervisor/Department Chair Effectiveness
· Confidence in Senior Leadership
· Faculty & Staff Well-being;
· Shared Governance
· Faculty Experience
· Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging
