THE BATAVIA CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT IS A WINNER OF THE ROCHESTER 2018 TOP WORKPLACES AWARD
The Batavia City School District has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. The award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“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.”
For Superintendent of Schools Christopher J. Dailey, the anonymous survey confirmed what he already believed to be true: “Our administration, faculty, and staff are second to none, “ he said. “They are dedicated to improving all students in every aspect of their growth while enrolled at BCSD. In addition, our Board of Education, backed by our community, supports the administration in creating a positive environment for our students and staff to work, learn, and grow.”
The future, he noted, will hold more of the same.
“This independent survey of all of our employees is an excellent recognition that defines our district as a great place to have a career that makes a difference in our world,” said Dailey. “We offer outstanding benefits to our employees and excellent professional development opportunities for continued improvement in all aspects of our district. BCSD also has tremendous facilities for our employees to impact the lives of our students. Our 2020 Vision Capital Project will enhance all aspects of our employee and student lives.”
Claffey said, “Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy. It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
