logo for 2016® Top Companies to Work for in Arizona

We are pleased to announce that Bryan University has earned a spot on the list of 2016® Top Companies to Work for in Arizona. To receive this distinction, Bryan University was required to complete a two-part assessment process conducted by the independent workplace research firm, Best Companies Group (BCG). Part one of process was the Employer Questionnaire, where BCG asked about benefits, HR policies and the fun things the employers do for their employees. Part two was the Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey which measured the employee experience in 8 core focus areas: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training, Development and Resources, Pay and Benefits, and Overall Engagement. Using the combined data from both parts of the survey process, BCG determined the top 100 organizations that made the grade. “This Top Company list gets more competitive each year”, says Denise Gredler, Founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and consulting partner for the program. “The list of winners had very impressive employee survey results averaging an overall favorable rate of 90 percent and an overall employee engagement score of 92 percent, which is more than double the national average.”

“We are proud to be recognized as one of Arizona’s Top Companies to Work for,” says Don Gull, Bryan University Chancellor. “Our ability to attract and retain top talent directly contributes to Bryan University’s primary focus on student success. The fact that our employees’ experiences and feedback are at the core of this honor and recognition underscores our commitment to providing a working environment that encourages collaboration, teamwork, creativity, and new ways of thinking.”

Julie Phillips, Vice President of Employee Excellence, states: “We believe everyone has greatness within them, and we are all focused on the mission of helping others achieve that greatness. I think that is what makes Bryan such a great place to work; we all believe in that mission.”
