fortune-100bestFor the first time Vanderbilt has been named one of the top 100 best places to work in the United States in Fortune magazine’s annual survey. It is the first educational institution to be named to the list. 

The No. 98 ranking released in the February 2 issue encompasses approximately 21,000 employees at Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. 

“I am proud and humbled that my colleagues are content and happy to be here. It is a great compliment to the employees at both the university and medical center to be the first educational institution to be ranked on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list,” Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos said. 

The rankings are determined through an extensive survey process. More than 81,000 employees from 353 companies responded to the survey nationwide, and a wealth of further information was submitted by management. The survey was conducted by Fortune in conjunction with the Great Place to Work Institute, based in San Francisco.
