For the second consecutive year, East Greenbush Central School District was named a Top Workplace by the Times Union in a special publication on Sunday. The district was one of only 10 Capital Region organizations to be recognized as a Top Workplace in the large employers category (300+ employees) and the only school district included in the publication.
The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measured several aspects of workplace culture, including connection, alignment and effectiveness.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
Superintendent Jeff Simons congratulated all district employees in an email on Monday morning, and said in part, “This accomplishment is due to the investment and caring you bring with you to work each day in service to our students. Being honored as a Top Workplace again this year is also a reflection of the strong sense of community and teamwork among our staff and the caring that exists between our staff, students and families.”
