The Importance of Selected Categories of Employee Benefits to Public Junior College Teachers.
Barber, Ronald Jerry
The primary purpose of this dissertation is to establish categories of employee benefits and to discover their importance to public junior college teachers. Faculty at 50 public junior colleges in the United States were sent an Employee Benefit Questionnaire developed by the author (included in this document). It was found that junior college teachers, as a group, placed significantly different degrees of importance on the following categories of benefits, listed in order of importance: security, teaching, research, and income supplement benefits. Tenured faculty, compared as a group to non-tenured faculty, were found to place more importance on security benefits, less importance on income supplement benefits. There was no significant difference on the other benefits. Faculty recruited from public schools placed less emphasis on research benefits than those from business, industry, college teaching, or recent college graduation. The report points out that employee benefits (1) account for a significant part of an organization's payroll; and (2) play an important role in junior college recruiting and retention of faculty.
