From Duke Office of News & Communications
For the fourth consecutive year, Duke has been named as one of the best colleges in the country to work for by The Chronicle of Higher Education.
After an independent survey of employees for the 2011 "Great Colleges to Work For" program, Duke earned high marks for its commitment in five workplace categories. Duke was among colleges highlighted for programs and achievements in:
- Professional/ career development programs (Employees given opportunity to develop skills and understand requirements to advance in careers).
- Facilities, workspaces and security (Facilities adequately meet needs, appearance of campus is pleasing and the institution takes steps to provide a secure environment).
- Job satisfaction (Provides insight into satisfaction with job fit, autonomy, resources).
- Work/life balance (Policies give employees flexibility to manage personal lives).
- Supervisor/department chair relationship (Supervisor makes expectations clear, solicits ideas).
This year, 310 colleges participated in the program, and Duke was one of 111 institutions that received recognition in various categories.
