Maricopa County Community College District is one of only two Arizona-based employers to be named to Forbes 2017 list of top U.S. employers – and the only education-based organization from Arizona to be included.
“Maricopa is proud to be recognized as one of America’s top employers,” said Chancellor Maria Harper-Marinick. “This is a reflection of the caliber of faculty and staff we have across the system and their collective commitment to serving our students and communities.”
Working with online statistics provider Statista, Forbes surveyed 30,000 American employees working for large (more than 5,000 employees in the U.S.) and midsize (between 1,000 and 5,000 employees in the U.S.) employers in 25 different industries. The willingness to recommend one’s own employer was considered to be the most important dimension of the assessment.
A total of 60 education-based employers, from school districts to universities, were recognized in the 800 best large and midsized employers.
