Excelsior College Named a Winner of the Times Union 2021 Top Workplaces Award

Albany, N.Y.—Excelsior College has been awarded a 2021 Top Workplaces honor by the Times Union. The winners list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey.

“Excelsior College is honored to be one of only 62 organizations in the Capital Region to make the Top Workplaces list,” said Mark Howe, vice president of human resources. “The award is especially meaningful because it comes from employee feedback. Thank you to our Excelsior staff for making us a Times Union Top Workplace in 2021.”

The anonymous survey conducted by Energage measures 15 culture drivers, including alignment and connection. The research-based employee engagement survey results included rankings and comments.

“When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “Top Workplaces draws on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
