Earlier this year, Newsweek also named Duke University as one of “American’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity,” and one of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women.”

Duke has long worked to provide employees with a competitive benefits package. And in the past year, Duke has also expanded and enhanced its employee tuition assistance program to better suit an evolving work landscape and an influx of new employees.

“While we are excited to be listed among these other employers, we are not resting,” Lofton said. “We are continually trying to find ways to best serve our workforce.”

Newsweek and the data firm Plant-A Insights Group created the list by gathering public data and anonymous survey responses from around 62,000 American workers about their current or former employers, or the employers of people in their circle. Respondents were asked to rate employers on benefits, working environment, work-life balance, training and career progression, company image, corporate culture, sustainability awareness and proactive management of a diverse workforce. The process yielded profiles of around 389,000 employers.

The 1,000 highest-scoring employers were included in the “American’s Greatest Workplace List” which appears in the Newsweek issue hitting newsstands now.
