Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) is proud to be recognized by ERC as one of Northeast Ohio’s 99 best places to work. This is the 14th time the College has received the NorthCoast 99 award.
The honor reflects the commitment and pride that Tri-C employees bring to their jobs, said Lillian Welch, the College’s vice president of human resources. Those strengths helped the College navigate the coronavirus crisis.
“Our employees met the moment and set new standards of service and excellence during a time of great uncertainty,” Welch said. “Their selfless work for the benefit of others showed what it means to be part of the Tri-C family.”
NorthCoast 99 is in its 22nd year of recognizing great places to work. The award program recognizes companies with HR practices that drive results, provide competitive advantages and allow businesses to innovate and grow. The 2020 honorees were announced today.
