NJBiz names School of Pharmacy one of New Jersey's best places to work

Fairleigh Dickinson University’s School of Pharmacy was recently honored twice by NJBiz: as one of the “Best Places to Work in New Jersey” and as a nominee for NJBiz’s Healthcare Heroes.

Companies and organizations from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the “Best Places to Work in New Jersey”. Part one consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. Part two consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

 “I’m honored that the School of Pharmacy has been selected as one of the ‘Best Places to Work in New Jersey,’” said Michael Avaltroni, dean of the School of Pharmacy. “I’m so proud of the team we’ve built and each team member’s commitment to creating a collegial, supportive and fun workplace focused on educational excellence.”

FDU’s School of Pharmacy was ranked 41 in the small/medium companies category.

“I am excited to be a part of an organization that has been recognized as one of the top places to work in New Jersey,” said Chadwin Sandifer, the School of Pharmacy’s assistant dean for student affairs. “Since opening the pharmacy program in 2012, we have been devoted to creating an engaging community for our students, faculty, staff and community partners.”

NJBiz’s Healthcare Heroes honors individuals and organizations that are making a significant impact on the quality of healthcare in New Jersey. The winner in each of several categories will be announced during a breakfast awards ceremony on Tuesday, June 23, 2015.

 “We are thrilled and honored to be mentioned amidst an impressive list of 2015’s Healthcare Heroes of New Jersey,” said Avaltroni. Since our program’s inception, we have been committed to advancing pharmacy education to assure that today’s students gain the tools and insights to think, lead, advocate, communicate and implement as future innovators and heroes across the continuum of healthcare.”

The School of Pharmacy is nominated in the category of Education Hero (Organization).

“It is an honor and privilege to be recognized for making a difference in healthcare education within the New Jersey community,” said Sandifer.
