MGH Institute of Health Professions : Named to Honor Roll for Third Consecutive Year in 2016 “Great Colleges to Work For” Survey

MGH Institute of Health Professions has once again been named to The Chronicle of Higher Education’s Honor Roll for the third consecutive year in the prestigious education magazine’s 2016 “Great Colleges to Work For” survey. The Chronicle is the nation’s most important source of news about colleges and universities.

The Institute was one of just 42 colleges from across the nation – and the only one in the City of Boston—named to the Honor Roll.

“Being named to the Honor Roll for the third consecutive year is evidence of the value we place on assuring a rewarding work environment,” said President Jan Bellack. “It is an affirmation by our faculty and staff that the Institute is a place where talented people have opportunities to thrive as they dedicate themselves to our mission of educating tomorrow’s health care leaders.”

Honor Roll recognition goes to the top ten schools in each four-year size category and the top four schools in each two-year size category, based on the number of times they were honored in the individual recognition areas.

A total of 93 of the 281 institutions that participated in the study earned “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies. The Institute, which enrolls more than 1,500 students, was included in the Small Colleges category for schools with fewer than 3,000 students. This is the seventh consecutive year the Institute has been named a “Great College to Work For” by the Chronicle.

“MGH Institute of Health Professions is a leader among Massachusetts colleges in a number of growth and success indicators and that only happens when everyone in the boat is rowing together,” said Richard Doherty, President of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts. “It is no surprise to me that the Institute is once again recognized as a great place to work.”

The Institute was recognized in the following nine categories, two more than in 2015:

  • Collaborative Governance, where faculty members are appropriately involved in decisions related to academic programs;
  • Compensation & Benefits, where pay is fair and benefits meet the needs of employees;
  • Confidence in Senior Leadership, where leaders have the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience for institutional success;
  • Job Satisfaction, where employees feel good about job fit, autonomy, and resources;
  • Professional/Career-Development Programs, where employees are given the opportunity to develop skills and understand requirements to advance in their careers;
  • Respect and Appreciation, where employees are regularly recognized for their contributions;
  • Supervisor or Department-Chair Relationship, where supervisors make expectations clear and solicit ideas;
  • Teaching Environment (faculty only), where faculty members say the institution recognizes innovative and high-quality teaching; and
  • Work/Life Balance, where employees say the school’s policies give them the flexibility to manage their personal lives.

School of Nursing Professor Patrice Nicholas, Chair of the Faculty Senate, said the open lines of communication among faculty, staff, and administration create a culture of collaboration and mutual respect. She also cited the school’s growth over the past several years as an example of senior leadership having the necessary vision to ensure its future success.

Heather Easter, executive assistant to the Provost and Chair of the Staff Council, noted several reasons for the Institute’s high marks. They include award events that recognize employees for their service excellence, annual salary merit increases and regular salary adjustments to ensure employees are paid in line with compensation benchmarks, generous retirement benefits, and an annual staff development program.

“Nine years in, The Chronicle’s Great Colleges to Work For program is well known as a mark of a college or university that puts thought and effort into serving the needs of its faculty and staff,” said Liz McMillen, the publication’s editor. “The colleges and universities that make the list are highly rated by their employees for creating great working environments, an important achievement that helps them recruit top academic and administrative talent.”

MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston is an innovative and interprofessional graduate school with post-baccalaureate, direct entry-level master’s and doctorate, and post-professional programs in nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant studies, speech-language pathology, health professions education, and a PhD in rehabilitation sciences. Founded by Massachusetts General Hospital in 1977, it is the only degree-granting affiliate of Partners HealthCare, New England’s most prestigious care network.

The MGH Institute offers its more than 1,500 students unparalleled opportunities to learn and work alongside expert practitioners in a variety of hospital, clinical, community, and educational settings. The college, which has graduated more than 6,700 students, is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Several programs are highly ranked by U.S. News & World Report.
