Springdale Public Schools is among Arkansas' best midsize employers, according to Forbes’ fifth annual list of America’s Best Employers By State.
Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey 70,000 workers at companies (minimum of 500 employees) 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.
The number of companies on each state’s list varied by the size of its companies and workforce. Ultimately, a total of 1392 organizations made at least one state list, with 269 (think Apple and JPMorgan Chase) ranking in multiple states.
As with all Forbes lists, companies pay no fee to participate.
