ICYMI: Auburn School District Named One of WA State’s Best Employers

Forbes recently released a list of “America’s Best Employers By State.”  The Auburn School District ranked 26 out of 36 for the State of Washington.

According to Forbes, the rankings are based on an independent survey of more than 80,000 U.S. employees.  Qualifying companies had to employ at least 500 people in their U.S. operations.
The surveys were administered in a series of anonymous online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce. Those surveyed rated their willingness to recommend their own employers.  Participants were also asked to evaluate other employers in their industry that stood out either positively or negatively.

Auburn Education Association President Elaine Hogg gave insight into the relationship between the AEA and the ASD.  The positive, collaborative, relationship between educators and the administration could be a reason ASD made the list.

In case you want to work for one of the top employers in Washington, here is a list of current openings at ASD.

Two Other Big Auburn Employers Make the List

MultiCare Health Systems ranked 12 out of 36 on the list.  MultiCare operates Auburn’s hospital, the MultiCare Cancer Center in Auburn, as well as several doctor’s offices within the city.

“We are thrilled to see this feedback from our team members and our community,” says Kevin B. Dull, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Potential Officer for MultiCare. “We see this as a positive validation of the work we are doing to become the Pacific Northwest’s highest value system of health, and we will keep working every day to build on this momentum.”

Boeing, with plants in Auburn, Renton, and Everett, ranked third.

Here are current job listings for MultiCare Health and Boeing.
