WesternU Named “Great College to Work For”

Pomona, Calif. (PRWEB) July 22, 2013

For the second consecutive year, Western University of Health Sciences has been named a “Great College to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

WesternU received recognition in two areas: Benefits & Compensation and Respect & Appreciation.

“There is a visible sense of family and community at Western University of Health Sciences,” said WesternU President Philip Pumerantz, PhD. “We cultivate this environment by recruiting and retaining top-notch employees who believe character in a student is as important as high grades.

“Our faculty and staff set an example to students by treating each other with respect, giving generously of their time in the community for charitable causes, and reaching across disciplines to work interprofessionally.”

WesternU demonstrates its respect and appreciation for employees in a variety of ways, including a holiday luncheon hosted by the president prior to the Christmas/Hanukkah break; signed thank-you notes from the president on each employee’s work anniversary; and commemorative WesternU lapel pins and gifts of increasing value on every fifth work anniversary. More broadly, the University’s bedrock philosophy is one of humanistic caring for one’s fellows, which is evident in work relationships across campus, regardless of job position.

WesternU has a vacation policy that allows for up to 26 paid days off per year for eligible employees. The University has more than 1,000 employees.

WesternU was one of 97 colleges and universities deemed a Great College to Work For, drawing from 300 participating institutions in 2013, including 227 four-year institutions and 73 two-year institutions.

The Chronicle’s 2013 Great Colleges to Work For program recognizes small groups of colleges (based on enrollment size) for specific best practices and policies. Now in its sixth year, the Great Colleges program has become one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country.

“In light of increasing public concern about the cost of higher education, The Chronicle is focused more than ever on providing the necessary information that helps our readers make informed choices,” said Liz McMillen, editor, The Chronicle of Higher Education. “What we find year after year in the Great Colleges survey is that many educators and administrators are also thinking more critically about how to improve the cost-effectiveness and workplace efficiency of their institutions. The Great Colleges program is our way of highlighting their efforts.”
