UK has received national recognition for its outstanding work environment for faculty and staff. For the first time, UK is listed among The Chronicle of Higher Education's Great Colleges to Work For.
This distinction serves as a reminder of the strong culture and community UK continues to foster. It also serves as a valuable tool to attract and retain talented employees.The results also follow the upward trend from our UK@Work employee engagement survey, where we recently scored higher than the average for other universities in 10 out of 12 categories, including diversity and inclusion, empowerment, career development, and pay and benefits.
The Great Colleges to Work For honor is based on survey feedback from 600 randomly selected faculty and staff. The survey was administered for The Chronicle by ModernThink LLC, a Delaware-based human resources consulting firm.It is based on a workplace survey that has been used in 55 "Best Places to Work" programs at more than 4,000 organizations.
