The Gates Chili Central School District has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by Top Workplaces USA. The annual Top Workplaces survey explores how organizations create and sustain a positive and productive culture and is based solely on employee feedback.


The sense of family and diversity are just some of the reasons identified by employees on why they enjoy working at Gates Chili. Employees also feel supported with multiple opportunities for professional growth, which contributes to an inclusive, collaborative culture.


“Gates Chili’s culture is based on relationships and attracts employees who want to make a difference for students,” said Superintendent Christopher Dailey. “We are committed to helping develop all learners and take pride in our values of respect, responsibility, compassion and hard work. These values play a significant role in what makes Gates Chili so special, and we are thrilled these were recognized through the survey.”


“We are particularly proud of this recognition from our employees given the unique year we have just experienced,” said Michaela Perrotto, assistant superintendent for human resources and labor relations. “Without our staff’s dedication, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve this high honor.”


The Top Workplaces 2021 list is based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools.
