CU system administration is one of the top workplaces in the state, according to a recently released survey ranking.
CU is featured on The Denver Post’s list of Colorado’s Top Workplaces in 2019 for small, midsize and large companies. Announced May 5, CU system administration is listed at No. 30 out of 150.
The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measured aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connections.
“We are thrilled to be noticed as a Top Workplace this year by our own employees,” said Felicity O'Herron, chief human resources officer at University of Colorado system administration Employee Services. “We continue to strive for the best work environment for our employees to be successful.”
Energage invited 2,110 companies to participate and surveyed 247 of them. Of the 101,226 people surveyed in the Denver area, 60,643 responded.
“For nearly 150 years, our university has been part of the fabric of Colorado,” CU President Bruce D. Benson told the Post. “The women and men who work here further a legacy of service to our students and our state. Their exemplary work every day helps ensure that the university meets its mission and that Colorado remains vibrant, competitive and a great place to live and work.”
Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, said Top Workplaces is more than just recognition.
“Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results,” Claffey said. “Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
