District 225 Among 'Chicago Tribune's' Top 100 Places to Work

A total of 584 out of 778 D225 employees participated in the survey the 'Tribune' uses to determine the best companies to work for around Chicago.

The Chicago Tribune named Glenbrook High School District 225 one of the “Top 100 Workplaces” of 2012 as part of its annual feature published on Tuesday, Nov. 13. Chicago-area companies were selected based on employee surveys that measured company leadership, communication, career opportunities, working environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits. The Top Workplaces are determined solely on employee feedback.

“It is gratifying to know that our employee’s responses qualify us for recognition as one of Chicago’s best workplaces,” said Superintendent Dr. Mike Riggle. “Every employee contributes through their daily actions to a healthy and positive work environment. For us this means a better environment for students and potential for the highest levels of achievement.”

Glenbrook staff were invited to participate in the survey this past spring, conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, after being nominated for the award by an employee. A total of 584 out of 778 (75%) Glenbrook employees participated in the elective survey, well above the required 35% level and higher than the average response rate of 66%.

The survey compares District 225 data to similar organizations across the country, and offers open-ended comments and suggestions for future improvements.

“The administrative team plans to use the open-ended comments and suggestions as a tool for reflection and future improvement,” said Riggle.

Board President Skip Shein, GBN Principal Paul Pryma, and GBS Principal Brian Wegley accompanied Riggle to represent the district at a special recognition event on November 12.

Glenbrook High School District 225 serves more than 4,700 students from Northbrook and Glenview

Congratulations District 225 - when an organization creates an environment of respect for their employees, a trickle-down-effect of respect to their customers and by their customers occurs. In this case, it creates an incredibly positive environment for the students. It's a wonderful thing for us parents to see. Thank you!
