KCC named a “2022 Great College to Work For”

Kellogg Community College is one of the best colleges in the United States to work for, according to the Great Colleges to Work For program.

The results of the 2022 analysis, released today at GreatCollegesList.com, are based on a survey of 212 colleges and universities. In all, 68 of those institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium and large institutions, including 46 four-year institutions and 22 two-year institutions.

KCC won honors in the “Compensation and Benefits” category, which is based on employee satisfaction data derived from a campus survey conducted earlier this year. According to Great Colleges, the honor in this category is based on the perception among employees that they are compensated fairly and that benefits are adequate, contributing to a feeling that employees feel valued and respected at KCC.

“This is a satisfying affirmation of KCC’s longstanding appreciation of our employees, but our real goal isn’t recognition – it’s being a campus community that values the needs and contributions of every individual,” said Steve Claywell, Chair of the KCC Board of Trustees. “In that sense, everyone at KCC helps to make this a great place to work.”

Survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institution questionnaire that captured employment data and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, maintenance and support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.

The Great Colleges to Work For program is one of the largest workplace recognition programs in the country.

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