Southwestern Named a Top Workplace Third Year In a Row

Nashville, TN – Southwestern has been recognized as a top company in Middle Tennessee for the third straight year.

Sponsored by The Tennessean, the 2016 Top Workplaces survey was based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC. The survey measured qualities such as company leadership, communication, career opportunities, working environment, managerial skills, pay, and benefits.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “To be a top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture everyday – the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone’s in it together.”

“It’s an honor to not only be recognized with this award, but to win it in 2014, 2015, and now, 2016. It's an even bigger honor when you know it is based on employee feedback. The culture of building people, building character, and helping people achieve their goals is greater than any individual. Collectively, we do great things,” said Henry Bedford, Chairman & CEO.

Dave Ramsey discusses Southwestern Advantage program with recent alum

Dave Ramsey and recent-grad Patrick from Ohio share what can be learned and gained by students working in the Southwestern Advantage program.

Short-term sacrifice equals long-term reward. Don't want student loan debt? Do Southwestern Advantage. It's without question the hardest work option you could choose, but your future debt-free self will thank you for delaying gratification. Use your time to do the things now that others won't so that you can later live a life that other's can't.
