Midlands Technical College was named one of South Carolina's best employers in Forbes Magazine.

Forbes released its annual list of America’s Best Employers by state in August. Midlands Technical College ranked number one among colleges and universities as well as number two overall.

“Our recent ranking by Forbes is a welcomed recognition of our collegewide efforts to be the best in class for both students and employees,” said MTC president, Dr. Ron Rhames. "It is an honor to be ranked highly amongst the best employers of our state.”

Rankings comes from data compiled by market research company, Statista. Nearly 80,000 Americans who work for businesses or organizations with at least 500 employees were surveyed to collect the data.

MTC was second to UPS on South Carolina’s list.

The employees surveyed by Statista were asked to rate employers based on the following criteria:

  • work environment safety
  • compensation competitiveness
  • opportunities for advancement

Many of the top-rated employers also received high marks for their ability to offer allowances like remote working opportunities that arose in response to the pandemic.

“Being rated as South Carolina’s highest educational institution is indicative of quality faculty and staff at our college who make it a pleasure to work at MTC," Rhames said. “We owe this ranking to them.”
