UNT named one of best midsize employers in country 

Forbes Media, in a partnership with Statista, ranked UNT 25th out of 301 employers in the United States for making its employees feel "happy, inspired and well-compensated." 

Statista, a statistics and consumer research firm, surveyed 30,000 employees across the country to see what worker morale was like at mid-size and large companies.

The company asked questions about compensation, diversity and opportunities for advancement. The most heavily weighted question asked if the employees would recommend to other people to work at the company.
