Lindbergh Schools Recognized as 2024 Top Workplace

July 2, 2024

Lindbergh Schools is proud to be named a recipient of the 2024 Top Workplaces Award, sponsored by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. This is the district’s fifth consecutive year to receive this honor. In the Large Category (500+ employees), Lindbergh Schools ranked 14 overall.

For this year’s winners list, 169 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 score high enough are recognized as Top Workplaces. 

“Our teachers, administrators and staff are among the most important factors when it comes to student success, so it is essential that we support them well, now and in the future,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tony Lake. “At Lindbergh Schools, we are proud to have built a workplace culture where success is a priority, not only for our students, but also for this organization and our employees as well.”

The Top Workplaces 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.
