Brenau Named a ‘Great College to Work For’

Brenau was recognized Monday as one of the best higher education institutions to work for in the country.

It was among about 80 universities and colleges – and one of only three from Georgia – listed in The Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2017 “Great Colleges to Work For” rankings.

This is the fifth year Brenau has earned the distinction. Specifically, the university won honors in three categories: respect and appreciation, teaching environment and supervisor-department chair relationship.

The Chronicle’s Great Colleges to Work For survey is the largest and most comprehensive workplace study in higher education. It recognizes the colleges that get top ratings from their employees on workforce practices and policies.

The results are based on demographics, workplace policies, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition is the employee feedback.

“We continuously strive to make Brenau a great place to work,” said Kelley Maddox, assistant vice president of human resources. “These recognitions demonstrate this university’s commitment to excellence.”
