Southside Virginia Community College named a “2019 Great College to Work For”

For the tenth time, Southside Virginia Community College has received the distinction of being a Great College to Work For having been named again for 2019.  This honor puts SVCC in elite company.

SVCC is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Great Colleges to Work For program.

The results, released recently in a special insert of the Chronicle of Higher Education are based on a survey of 236 colleges and universities.  In all, 85 of the 236 institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with Southside Virginia Community College included among the medium universities with 3,000 to 9,999 students.

The local College won honors in 3 categories this year:

  • Job satisfaction
  • Professional/Career Development Programs

  • Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship

“This is very satisfying affirmation of workplace community excellence here at SVCC.  We appreciate being a part of a team that transforms lives.  Everyone at SVCC helps to make this a great place to work,” said SVCC President Dr. Quentin R. Johnson.

The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional 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 the employee feedback.

The Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. For more information and to view all the results of the survey, visit the Great College Program website at www.greatcollegesprogram.com.

ModernThink, a strategic human capital consulting firm, administered the survey and analyzed the results.
