NFC NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED Great Place to Work N orth Florida College is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for according to results released Sept. 19 by The Chronicle of Higher Education. This is NFC’s fourth consecutive year on the prestigious “Great Colleges to Work For” ranking and has once again received Honor Roll designation for creating an exceptional work environment for its faculty and staff. NFC landed a spot on the Honor Roll for achieving high marks in nine categories that reflect best practices and policies of great colleges. The College was specifically recognized for Collaborative Governance; Compensation and Benefits; Confidence in Senior Leadership; Facilities, Workspace, and Security; Job Satisfaction; Professional/Career Development; Respect and Appreciation; Supervisor/ Department Chair Relationship; and Work/Life Balance. “Receiving this honor for the fourth consecutive year speaks volumes about our campus, employees and the extraordinary work environment that we enjoy here at North Florida College,” said NFC President John Grosskopf. “Our small, intimate environment and supportive culture of teamwork and respect create an institution where every employee is able to make a productive contribution to our mission and goals.” 28 NORTH FLORIDA COLLEGE COMMUNITY: NFC President John Grosskopf was guest speaker at the inaugural Madison County Chamber of Commerce Luncheon on Aug. 5.
