TU named one of 'Best Places to Work in Baltimore'
University one of 31 finalists out of pool of 176 nominated companies
TOWSON, Md. (March 30, 2006)—The Baltimore Business Journal has named Towson University one of the Best Places to Work in Baltimore.
The award is based on an independent survey by the Business Journal, in conjunction with Quantum Market Research Inc., which asked for employees to rate their companies on such things as leadership effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, trust in co-workers, people practices, work engagement and other workplace factors.
The 31 finalist organizations were selected from a pool of 176 nominated companies based on how their employees rated them on a 38-question survey that was administered online.
“Since this survey was anonymous, it’s a great indicator of how employees really feel about their workplace,” said Business Journal publisher James Breiner. “Creating a great workplace is a key factor in a business’s ability to attract and keep the best talent. In a knowledge economy, talented people provide the competitive edge.”
The results were published in the March 24, 2006, edition of the Baltimore Business Journal, which also listed the top three companies in each of the three categories.
The 31 companies were recognized at a luncheon on March 23, which was attended by 400 people.
