Earlier this year Leyden employees were asked to take an online survey that ultimately resulted in District 212's placement on the Top 100 Workplaces list.
This year's list includes employers in various categories including advertising and marketing, healthcare, entertainment and recreation, travel industry and information technology.
The companies chosen for recognition as a top workplace are determined through employee surveys conducted by Workplace Dynamics, a research firm that examines workplace conditions. The company uses an anonymous survey to gather information from employees working in diverse areas such as online services, not-for-profit, legal agencies and education.
The assessment measures qualities such as communication, career opportunities, managerial skills and the working environment. It also quantifies the way employees feel about their job based on work expectations, pay and benefits and relationships with management.
Earlier this year, Leyden employees were asked to take the online survey that ultimately resulted in the district's placement on the list.
Superintendent Nick Polyak says the most significant part of the recognition is that it was earned by staff members. "Our staff makes Leyden a Top Workplace and I'm honored to work alongside them every day," he adds.
