For the second consecutive year, Clayton State University has been named one of the “Top 100 Workplaces in Atlanta” for 2012 by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The University was recognized at the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s
Top 100 Workplaces invitation-only event held on Wednesday, Apr. 24, at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. The 2013 Top Workplaces section will run in the AJC on Sunday, Apr. 28.
Also for the second consecutive year, Clayton State was the only University System of Georgia institution to receive this honor. The only other higher education institution on the list is private Brenau University.
Clayton State is ranked ninth among the 20 institutions in the “large industry category,” which also includes Woodward Academy, Alston & Bird, Equifax, Ernst & Young, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, CSX, and Sprint.
More than 1200 organizations were initially included in the 2013 competition, held by the AJC and its partner, Workplace Dynamics. After employees responded to print and online solicitations beginning in August 2012, Workplace Dynamics surveyed a total of 83,565 metro Atlanta employees and compiled the top 20 large companies (500+ employees), the top 30 midsize companies (150 to 400 employees) and the top 50 small companies (less than 150 employees.)
After completing the survey, Workplace Dynamics ran a series of statistical tests to look for questionable results to see if disqualifications were needed.
