Burnt Hills, New York, April 10, 2022 – The Charlton School has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by the Times Union. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”

We are delighted to be included this year as a Top Workplace and want to thank the Times Union and Energage for this recognition. We have always cared about each other as individuals at The Charlton School. We work hard to hire the right people and provide them with the resources they need so they can bring their best selves to work every day. Equally important, is the ongoing work of cultivating an environment where we can all hold one another accountable. It’s a privilege to be able to do this critical work in creating a therapeutic learning community for young women to heal and grow. We are empowering future leaders of society here at The Charlton School, and I truly believe that.
