Cleveland State University is the best place to work in Greater Cleveland and the second best employer in all of Ohio, according to Forbes magazine’s “America’s Best Employers By State” 2022 rankings.

CSU also took top honors among all colleges and universities in the state. 

Forbesrankings measured the opinions of more than 70,000 American workers.

“We are proud our employees recommend CSU as great place to work,” said CSU President Laura Bloomberg, Ph.D.

“We work hard every day to establish and maintain an environment of respect and appreciation for every CSU employee. In doing so, we are best able to fulfill our mission of serving our students, our community and our region.”

To determine the list Forbes worked with Statista, a data analytics firm headquartered in Germany that tracks market and consumer data across 170 industries in over 150 countries. Together, they surveyed Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees.

All surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions.

The number of businesses ranked in each state was dependent on two factors: number of qualifying employers and size of the state’s workforce. Those operating in more than one state had the opportunity to be listed multiple times.

The final Forbes “America’s Best Employers” 2022 list ranks the 1,382 employers that received the greatest number of recommendations in each of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia.
