ABOUT UNITED EDUCATORS United Educators has committed significant resources, both staffing and financial, to creating a positive work environment where staff can do their best work every day while still maintaining a healthy work/life balance.
We have received numerous awards for best places to work including the Alliance for Workplace Excellence and Business Insurance Magazine. We were able to show that through our management and staffing practices, we have created a diverse workforce that is highly engaged where staff work hard and have fun. We have given our staff a voice (biennial Employee Surveys, Ask Janice, and Supervisor Evaluations) and we are committed to acting on the lessons we learn from the feedback staff give us. Our active social committee organizes a variety of events throughout the year that build our sense of community while creating some down time from the everyday stresses of work life. Regular wellness activities and an ongoing Weight Watchers’ At Work program have helped our staff develop healthy habits that hopefully improve their life at work and at home.
