Just recently, Bentley was featured in a case study that Gallup conducted and the results showed the importance of implementing this platform. A part of the case study results revealed the following :

The survey results show that Bentley students who have a strong understanding of their CliftonStrengths are:

  • 1.9 times more likely to be confident that they will get a good job after graduation
  • 1.6 times more likely to say that Bentley prepares them well for life outside of college

Gallup also discovered that Bentley students who receive support and opportunities for experiential learning are more confident about their prospects after graduation. It’s essential to prepare students for the change that is occurring in the workplace, and their success after graduation. Giving freshman and sophomore students am evaluation of their strengths has proved to be an important part of their college career as well as their career in the workplace.
