Ladue Schools Recognized as a St. Louis Post-Dispatch 2017 Top Workplace

Ladue Schools has recently been selected as one of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch 2017 Top Workplaces. Of the 1,100 local companies nominated, only 100 are recognized with this annual award. This is the third time the district has participated in the program, and we are honored to have been selected for the award on each occasion!

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch published the full lists of Top Workplaces online only June 25, 2017. The lists—for small, medium and large companies—are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few. The survey distributed to Ladue Schools staff received a high response rate of 70%.

Alumnus Honored by St. Louis Business Journal

Congratulations to Ladue Horton Watkins High School alumnus Vin Ko, who has been selected by the St. Louis Business Journal as a “30 Under 30” honoree! Vin is a 2005 graduate of Ladue Schools, and works with the St. Louis Mosaic Project, a regional initiative between the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and the World Trade Center St. Louis. The group welcomes immigrants into the community to share talent, ideas and energy to drive innovation. Vin also serves as board member for the Ladue Education Foundation.

The honorees were chosen from a pool of nearly 250 nominees and will be recognized at an event on July 13.  The program recognizes the St. Louis region’s future leaders and local business community.
