|Pattonville named a 2017 Top Workplace in region|
|Sunday, June 25, 2017|
The Pattonville School District was named to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Top Workplaces list for 2017. The district was ranked 6th among the Top 20 large employers (500 or more employees) in the St. Louis area. For the second consecutive year Pattonville is the highest-ranking school district on the large employer list. This is the third year in a row Pattonville has earned Top Workplace recognition.
"Pattonville’s ranking as a Top Workplace speaks to the outstanding work by our great staff and award-winning Board of Education,” said Dr. Mike Fulton, superintendent. “The ranking reflects the culture we’ve worked hard to create. That culture focuses on designing high quality learning experiences for all students and the use of transparent, inclusive decision-making processes. In Pattonville, people are our most important resource. Teamwork by our staff, students, parents, volunteers and business partners makes Pattonville a great place to live, learn and work. Our students win as a result."
To create the Top Workplaces list the Post-Dispatch teamed up with WorkplaceDynamics LLP, a survey firm that specializes in organizational health and employee engagement. The list recognizes great companies based solely on feedback provided by employees via written and online surveys. Last March, 70 percent of Pattonville staff responded to a survey and provided feedback. Employers that scored high enough based on national benchmarks developed by WorkplaceDynamics are named to the Top Workplaces list. The Post-Dispatch used the data gathered in the surveys to produce a special section for its June 25 Sunday edition and the list can be found online at STLToday.com.
More than 1,100 metro St. Louis companies were nominated as a Top Workplace, but only 120 received recognition. Out of that number, only 20, including Pattonville, were named a Top Workplace for companies with 500 or more employees.
Top Workplaces was created by WorkplaceDynamics. Over one million employees complete a survey each year to provide feedback about their organization. National benchmarks are used to determine rankings. More information is found online at www.topworkplaces.com.
