Alief ISD Named Houston Top Workplace
Employees Rank Alief ISD to Prestigious List of Best Employers for Fifth Time
Alief ISD has been named to the list of the Houston Chronicle Top Workplaces for the third year in a row. The district ranked in the top 35 of out of 150 large companies or organizations in the Houston area. The designation comes off the heels of a workplace satisfaction survey by Workplace Dynamics, a third-party surveyor known as the largest employer data ratings service provider in the United States.
The survey was distributed to the nearly 6,000 Alief ISD employees electronically and on paper with over 5,000 employees responding to the questions. The survey was confidential to ensure honest and forthright answers.
“I love working for Alief ISD. I am a proud Elsik graduate and have been here my whole career. Students and staff are supported and treated as family. I am surrounded by hard working positive teachers, administrators, staff, and students. I am constantly inspired to grow professionally and am given the tools to do so while being cheered on at the same time. Diversity makes us strong and gives kids the ability to see things through many different lenses. On top of all that, I have fun, and the relationships I have built will last a lifetime,” said Connie Koehn, Elsik High School teacher and soccer coach.
To compare the results with other similar companies, a benchmark was set from the average results of more than 6,000 school districts and eight companies nationwide similar in size and functions to Alief ISD. Overwhelmingly, the results in the Alief ISD survey came back significantly above the national average. The majority of employees reported overall satisfaction with their jobs, their managers and Alief ISD as an employer.
“Alief never fails to amaze me. Between our hardworking staff, talented students and supportive parents, we have the most amazing community you could ever ask for. I am thrilled that Alief ISD had been ranked as a top workplace for the fifth year in a row. I am truly Alief Proud,” said HD Chambers, Alief ISD Superintendent.
