The Indianapolis Star Names Sycamore School a Winner of the Indianapolis Top Workplaces 2019 Award

INDIANAPOLIS, IN / June 7, 2019 – Sycamore School, a private, independent school for gifted preschool through 8th grade students in Indianapolis, has been awarded a Top Workplace 2019 honor by The Indianapolis Star. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party research partner. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.
“I’m very proud—and not surprised—that Sycamore has been awarded a Top Workplace 2019 honor,” says Sycamore’s Diane Borgmann, who has served as Head of School since 2009, and has been a part of Sycamore for more than 20 years. “The unanimous focus on our mission and its delivery unites our faculty and staff in every way, and we are passionate about what we do. That passion leads to collegiality, collaboration, commitment, dedication, enthusiasm, and fun. The entire faculty and staff make Sycamore a Top Workplace. Through this award, we’ll be able to share with others why we love our school and why Sycamore is a great place for both kids and teachers!”
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, the research firm who conducted the survey. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture.. Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
