INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Ivy Tech Community College was named in the annual Top 100 ranking of America’s Best State Employers. This is the third Forbes designation the College has received this year, along with the Best Employers for Women for the second straight year and the Best Employers for Diversity.
Along with market research company Statista, Forbes’ rankings identify the companies positively rated by their employees on a variety of criteria, including the safety of work environment, fairness of compensation, opportunities for advancement, openness to telecommuting, and likelihood to recommend their employer to others. The final list ranks the 1,382 employers that received the greatest number of recommendations in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Indiana’s list includes 75 employers, but only five institutions of higher education.
“Becoming known as great place to work has been a focus of the College,” Dr. Sue Ellspermann, Ivy Tech President said. “It is exciting to see that our efforts to align policies and procedures to support all employees have paid off. These efforts have enabled us to increase employee engagement and attract and retain top talent.”
