Steward Receives Special Honors at Top Workplace Awards

School is granted “Best Managers” award

For the fourth year in a row, The Steward School was named a Top Workplace by the Richmond Times-Dispatch. In addition, the school received special honors with an award for Best Managers. The awards were presented at a ceremony last night at the Altria Theater.

“There is nothing more important than our people — both our students as well as our faculty and staff,” said Head of School Dan Frank. “We are honored to continue to be included in the Top Workplaces list because it is our own community of incredible teachers and staff members who made that possible.”

Steward was one of only 65 organizations in the Richmond area named a Top Workplace. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. The Best Managers award was presented for “Managers [who] help employees learn and grow, make it easier to do their jobs well and care about their concerns.”

Survey responses included statements like:

“It’s a warm, caring place to work and you truly get to teach kids, not just test kids.”

“The people and culture of Steward make you feel good to be here. It feels good to be a part of something bigger and meaningful to the world.”

“The people here are wonderful. This includes the students as well as the employees. It’s a very positive environment. I believe we are doing the right thing and we have the right motives. All people are respected and cared for. All of this is very important.”

This is the sixth year that the Times-Dispatch has administered the Top Workplace awards. It is the fourth year that Steward has participated; the school has been honored each year that it has participated.
