PublicSchoolWORKS’ Research & Development Team tracked changing and new mandates and created new training courses, compliance task reminders and various forms, checklists and written programs. The Client Services Team then made sure all districts were aware of the new requirements and resources and implemented the requirements for the districts so they would be in compliance with the mandates.


“PublicSchoolWORKS has had a huge year, but it has not fazed the members of our Client Services Team,” said Tom Strasburger, Vice President, Sales & Marketing of PublicSchoolWORKS. “The department implemented new processes to make them even more efficient in helping our customers. Our customers are extremely happy with the unbelievable service they get from our Client Services Teams. We constantly hear comments from our customers asking why other vendors can’t be more like PublicSchoolWORKS.”


More than 2,100 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition, an increase of 11% over 2015.  Finalists were determined by the average scores of 115 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges.
