Forbes recently included the Long Beach Unified School District on the list of “America’s Best Employers by State.”
The list was compiled by surveying 80,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. Surveys were conducted from October 2019 to May 2020.
“We appreciate this recognition, especially given the continuing pandemic, because the methodology of the Forbes list emphasizes the safety of the work environment, among other factors, including competitiveness of compensation, opportunities for advancement, and the real test – whether our employees would recommend us to others,” LBUSD Superintendent Jill Baker said. “We thank our employees for the vote of confidence and for continuing to teach and nurture our students during these trying times.”
LBUSD ranked fifth statewide, joining the ranks of some household names:
- Delta Air Lines
- In-N-Out Burger
- Costco Wholesale
- Long Beach Unified School District
Two other school districts made the top 100 list in California: Hacienda La Puente Unified at No. 41, and Riverside Unified at No. 92.
