Embry-Riddle Earns 12th Consecutive Title as Great College To Work For
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is one of the Great Colleges to Work For® for the 12th straight year.
In this year’s survey of 212 institutions, 68 schools earned this honor. Results are reported for small, medium and large institutions, with Embry-Riddle included among the large universities with 10,000 or more students. The specific subcategories in which Embry-Riddle earned honors are listed as follows:
- Job Satisfaction and Support
- Professional Development
- Supervisor/Department Chair Effectiveness
“Our mission to provide a world-class education is achieved in large part by ensuring that the success, safety and well-being of our entire community are at the forefront of all that we do,” said Embry-Riddle President P. Barry Butler, Ph.D. “Our culture is a supportive and nurturing one dedicated to service, integrity, professionalism and resilience. It’s an honor to be recognized for the 12th time for the extraordinary achievements and workplace culture that our talented faculty and staff produce at Embry-Riddle.”
Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. Official results will be released in a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education on Sept. 16.
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 employee feedback. ModernThink, a strategic human capital consulting firm, administered the survey and analyzed the results.
Embry-Riddle employs more than 2,500 faculty and staff worldwide. Benefits include paid parental leave, paid holidays including the week off between Christmas and New Year’s Day, a generous personal leave program, a four-day summer workweek, a 403(b) retirement plan with Embry-Riddle gift and matching contributions, and health insurance with vision and dental coverage. A tuition waiver program also offers free or discounted tuition to employees and family members, with employees allowed paid time off to attend Embry-Riddle classes.
