“In order to continue to be a world-class institution of teaching, learning, research and patient care, Duke must attract, retain and support a world-class workforce,” said Antwan Lofton, Vice President for Duke Human Resources. “To do that, we have to create a workplace that people want to be part of. We need to be a place where employees can grow in their careers and feel valued as people.”

Newsweek partnered with Plant-A Insights Group to create the list, which is based on interviews with human resources professionals, publicly available data and surveys of more than 250,000 U.S.-based employees about their workplaces and other employers. Survey participants were asked about employers’ compensation and benefits, training and career progression, working environment, work-life balance, corporate culture and more.

So far in 2024, Newsweek has also featured Duke on its lists for America’s Greatest Workplaces for Job Starters, America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity and America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women.

Earlier this year, Duke also appeared on Forbes’ 2024 lists of America’s Best Employers, America’s Best Employers for Diversity and America’s Best Employers for New Grads.
