Forbes names Rogers Schools No. 1 best employer in Arkansas

Rogers Public Schools has been ranked No. 1 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 can currently be viewed on the Forbes website


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, Rogers Public Schools is honored to be recognized on the Forbes list of Best-In-State Employers 2021. 


Dr. Marlin Berry, superintendent of the Rogers Public Schools, announced the award to staff members Thursday and thanked them for their work. 


“We all knew this place is special thanks to the effort and care each of you put into your work every day,” Berry shared in his note to staff. “Now it's official.”
