"After being named No.12 on Forbes’ list of best mid-size employers in the United States, we are so excited to be recognized locally in the top four employers in the state of Kansas,” Superintendent Dr. Brent Yeager said. “Our staff members are vital to the success of the school district. Thank you to our staff for their hard work and commitment to preparing every student for their future. With this shared vision, along with our supportive community in Olathe of students, families and patrons - we have been able to create a team that people want to join.”
Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey 70,000 workers at companies in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Participants were asked if they would recommend their employer to others, and to evaluate their employer based on working conditions, diversity, compensation packages, potential for development, company image and more. Participants also assessed employers beyond their own. All surveys were anonymous to encourage candor.
