Lindbergh Schools Named a 2023 Top Workplace by Post-Dispatch

June 26, 2023

Lindbergh Schools is proud to be named a recipient of the 2023 Top Workplaces Award, sponsored by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. This is the district’s fourth consecutive year to receive this honor.

For this year’s winners list, 179 St. Louis-area employers were ranked based on their employee survey feedback. Employees completed a scientific survey to rate their workplace culture and provided insights on what makes their organization unique. Employers that scored high enough are recognized as Top Workplaces. 

“Lindbergh Schools strives to create a workplace culture where all employee voices are heard, valued and respected,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tony Lake. “We are proud to be a Top Workplace for four years running, and this honor reflects the areas where we have worked hard to make the district a great place for employees to work.”

The 24-question employee engagement survey gathers responses on issues relating to workplace culture, including:

  • Alignment - where the company is headed, its values, cooperation, effective meetings
  • Coaching - managers care about concerns, are helpful, encourage employee development
  • Connection - employees feel appreciated, work is meaningful, working at full potential, clued into each other
  • Engagement - productivity, retention, recruiting
  • Leadership - confidence in company leaders
  • Performance - execution, open-mindedness, innovation, clued-in leadership
  • The Basics - pay, benefits, flexibility, training, expectations

Employers are categorized by size, and they are ranked within those size groups to accurately compare results.

The Top Workplaces program is offered to employers free of charge. We are proud to share this honor with all of our employees as we work together to continue providing exceptional service to all of our students, families, and community members.
