Cleveland State remains among the best places to work in the region

By Ronnie Holman

Northcoast 99 has given Cleveland State University a 2013 award for being one of the best places to work in this region. Only companies in Northeast Ohio are selected for this award.

Northcoast 99 is a program that recognizes and honors the top 99 places to work in Northeast Ohio. The program was developed by ERC, the largest professional organization that focuses on HR practices, programs and services. Since 1999, over 400 organizations have been honored and recognized by Northcoast 99.

The coordinators from Northcoast 99 reach out to thousands of companies across Northeast Ohio and gather feedback from their company through a survey. The survey rates various areas like, compensation, training, recruitment and many others. The companies that have the best policies and practices receive more points from

Northcoast 99 point system, which helps them in their selection process. The companies with the highest points in the 90 percentile are honored with the Northcoast 99 award.
Professor Jeffrey Bolt is in his second year at Cleveland State and so far it has been a good experience for him. He is part of the faculty that helped the school be honored again.

“It’s no surprise to me Cleveland State has won the Northcoast 99 award again,” Bolt said. “Since joining the Cleveland State faculty last year I have received constant support and opportunities for growth within the organization.”

Bolt is part of the communication department and gives a lot of credit to his department chairperson, Dr. George Ray, for his role in making Cleveland State University one of the best places to work in northeast Ohio.

“Dr. Ray has been an incredible mentor and has tirelessly worked to secure resources and accommodations,” Bolt said. “With leadership like this, it allows me to focus on my teaching responsibilities and provides more opportunities for the students.”

As long as there is a healthy environment for the faculty, it will be good for the students as well.

“As long as the administration can continue to provide an inviting environment for the faculty, the entire University can grow and offer the best academic experience for students,” Bolt said.
