Clear Creek ISD is one of two Houston-area public school districts to be named as one of the country’s best in-state employers, according to Forbes Magazine’s second annual list of America’s Best Employers by State.
The rankings were compiled through a partnership between Forbes and market research company Statista, according to a district media release. The complete list is divided into 51 rankings—one for each of the 50 states plus the District of Columbia—and was compiled by surveying 80,000 Americans who work for businesses with at least 500 employees, according to the release. Surveys were conducted from October 2019 to May 2020.
The district was ranked 65th out of the 100 Texas businesses listed. Katy ISD was ranked second, with the 90,000-employee grocer H-E-B coming in first.
Superintendent Greg Smith said in the release that CCISD recruits and retains top talent from across the country. The district, which is among the top 30 in terms of size in Texas, employs about 5,200 people.
“What makes this accolade more special is that it is based on the opinions and feedback from employees,” Smith said in the release. “It is an honor to be listed alongside other visionary leaders in Texas, such as H-E-B, Southwest Airlines and NASA.”
