Cedar Rapids Community School District has been awarded on the Forbes list of Best-In-State Employers 2021. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on August 24th, 2021 and can currently be viewed on the Forbes website – sorting by the state of Iowa.

America’s Best-In-State Employers 2021 were identified in an independent survey based on a vast sample of approximately 80,000 Americans working for companies with more than 500 employees in the USA. Across 25 industry sectors, 1,329 employer brands were ranked among the top employers. Brands were able to win in more than one state.

The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees who were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employees were also asked to evaluate other employers in their respective industry and state that stood out either positively or negatively.
Based on the results of the study, Cedar Rapids Community School District is ecstatic to be recognized on the Forbes list of Best-In-State Employers 2021.

“We are thrilled to be awarded for the second year in a row,” said Superintendent Noreen Bush. “To be included in the list of several prestigious companies and organizations across the state, is truly an honor and a great reflection on our Cedar Rapids Community School District employees and community members who spoke highly of our school district.”
