ModernThink LLC, a strategic human capital consulting firm, has conducted numerous “Best Places to Work” programs. Survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographic and workplace policies, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators and staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was employee feedback. The Chronicle of Higher Education published the results in its Sept. 20 issue.
UWF also received recognition in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2016.
