Lodi Unified Recognized as a Forbes Top Employer for a Second Time

 Lodi, CA (August 24, 2022) — Lodi Unified has once again been recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Employers by State in its 2022 edition.

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to compile the fourth annual list of “America’s Best Employers by State.” The list was collected by surveying 70,000 American employees who work for businesses with at least 500 employees. Forbes’ award honors 1,382 employers across multiple sectors that received the most recommendations. 

“I am very proud that Lodi Unified has received this award again from Forbes,” said Dr. Cathy Nichols-Washer, Superintendent of Lodi Unified. “This designation is a direct result of our strong, stable, and dedicated workforce, and our supportive and innovative Board of Education. We have outstanding employees, many of whom dedicate their entire careers to our District and educating the children of our community. We are truly honored.”

Lodi Unified previously received this distinction in 2019. The District is one of only four California public school districts awarded this honor, and the only public school district to be recognized in San Joaquin County. Lodi Unified is one of the largest employers in San Joaquin County with over 3,000 employees.
