Great Colleges to Work For Survey

Dear Colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce that NJIT will participate in the 2018 Great Colleges to Work For program. The Great Colleges to Work For Program® is sponsored by the Chronicle of Higher Education in partnership with ModernThink and provides senior-level administrators as well as academic leaders with insights on the quality of the workplace experience and the competitiveness of an institution’s policies and benefits.

NJIT faculty and staff will be invited to complete the ModernThink Higher Education Insight Survey©. With almost 1,000 unique participating institutions to date, ModernThink has accumulated a robust database of higher education benchmarking statistics and best practices. By working with ModernThink, NJIT will benefit from a nationally-normed survey instrument, industry-specific benchmarking data, and enhanced survey results and analysis.

By having a third-party provider facilitate the survey process, your responses will be completely anonymous and confidential. Further, ModernThink will not report back results for questions that have less than five (5) respondents.

You may have completed the Great Colleges survey in 2015 when participation included a sample of employees across the institution. These survey results and subsequent actions were shared throughout the NJIT community in a variety of venues by Bob Lazer, director of organization performance excellence. Feel free to contact Bob regarding these results and the actions NJIT has taken since your feedback was provided.

In the spirit of continuous improvement, I encourage you to complete the survey and contribute your feedback on how NJIT can be a better place to work while helping us gain recognition as a Great College to Work For.

The survey period for the 2018 Great Colleges program will run from March 12 - April 6, 2018.

Thank you,                             

Joel S. Bloom
President, NJIT
