The University of Southern Indiana has been included in “America’s Best-in-State Employers" rankings. According to a nationwide survey conducted on behalf of Forbes by Statista, USI is ranked 62nd alongside national employers such as Berry Global, Lilly, Target and Starbucks. 

To determine the list, Statista surveyed 70,000 Americans working for businesses across 25 industry sectors with at least 500 employees. Surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions. Respondents were asked to rate their employers on a variety of criteria, including safety of work environment, competitiveness of compensation, opportunities for advancement and openness to telecommuting.  

Statista then asked respondents how likely they would be to recommend their employer to others and to nominate organizations in industries outside their own. The number of businesses ranked in each state was dependent on two factors: the number of qualifying employers and the size of the state’s workforce. Employers with operations in more than one state had the opportunity to be listed multiple times.  

“This ranking is clear, external confirmation of what we already know is true. Our University is an exceptional place to study and work,” says Dr. Ronald S. Rochon, USI President. “This recognition elevates our institution’s visibility and reputation to new heights and helps us attract and retain highly qualified, dedicated faculty and staff who continually find new ways to positively transform our students’ lives.” 

The final list ranks 1,328 employers who received the greatest number of recommendations in each of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia. Indiana’s list includes only five higher education institutions. USI currently has approximately 2,150 employees.
