With a record number of workers switching jobs, employers are locked in a fierce competition to attract and retain top employees. So, it’s welcome news that NC State employees overwhelmingly endorsed the university as a great place to work, positioning NC State as the best large employer in North Carolina and the 54th best in the nation. NC State ranked fourth last year and ninth in 2020 among North Carolina companies.
The annual survey, conducted by Forbes and the market research company Statista, ranks America’s best large and mid-size employers. The list is based on anonymous surveys of 60,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees.
Respondents were asked to rate their employers on a variety of criteria, including working conditions, development opportunities and compensation. Statista also asked respondents how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others.
Chancellor Randy Woodson says he’s pleased NC State employees remain enthusiastic about the university and praised their resilience through challenging times. “Although the COVID-19 pandemic has received a lot of attention and certainly remains a concern, NC State’s faculty and staff are focused on our shared mission as a land-grant university,” he says. “Whether they’re in research, teaching, extension, student services, or other positions, NC State employees are simply the best and most committed professionals anywhere.”
