For the third year in a row Prosper ISD has landed itself on the Dallas News Top 100 places to work list.

“We celebrate it,” PISD human resources director Bernadette Gerace said. “We’re excited that for the third year in a row were in the top 100 places to work list.”

Each year the Dallas Morning News releases a list of the ‘Top 100 Places to Work‘ in the DFW area based on survey’s taken by the company’s local employees.

“We look at the survey results and see whats working and what isn’t working,” Gerace said. “We see what is it that makes people happy, and we try to have a self reflection and see OK this is what’s working. Let’s continue to do these things.”

The list isn’t something that only affects the staff; it affects the students also.

“Its an affirmation for our district,” Gerace said. “Its an affirmation for the administration that we’re doing right by our kids and we’re doing right by our staff.”

To make the contest more fair Dallas Morning News divides the companies by small, medium, and large based on the size of the companies staff.

“We want to continue to grow” Gerace said.

In order for a company to be qualified, at least 35 percent of the staff must fill out a 24 statement survey on how they feel about their company.

“Our leader [Dr.Watkins] has so much heart and love for our district,” Gerace said. “He’s so passionate about doing everything he can to make this experience the best it can be for our students and our staff. His leadership is what has affected us the most.”

Being placed on the the list is nothing new to the Prosper ISD staff.

“It’s something that we, as a group, congratulate one another on,” Gerace said. “It’s a way that we can push one another to say hey lets continue doing whatever it is were doing that people enjoy and try to make it better.”

The results from the list is not something that gets blown over as just another achievement in Prosper.

“It has challenged us to keep finding ways to be better,” Gerace said. “We want to continue to improve on what services we provide to our staff and to our community.”

Hopefully Prosper can continue to land itself on the list for many more years to come.
