The Tri County Way
Tri County Tech is a high-performance organization that strives to hire the best and the brightest talent. The ultimate goal is to find the perfect candidate not only for the position itself but also for that special someone who will meld naturally within the TCT culture. Tri County Tech’s culture can be summed up in four words: “The Tri County Way.” The Tri County Way is “who we are, what we do, and how we do it.” This culture statement has been in place since the launch of Vision 2020 in 2009 – a well-organized plan for the future that allows for a steady progression with noticeable and tangible results that will take Tri County Tech to the year 2020 in a deliberate process designed for success.
“Who we are” is our Core Values – the grounding force of our organization:
· Student Focused
· Investing in the Community
· Leadership by All
· Great Place to Work
These beliefs ensure that our team of educators is focused on the things that will provide quality education and training to our students and business clients.
Tri County Tech: Where Work Has Special Meaning
At Tri County Tech, work is more than just a “job.” In fact, 97% of our employees feel their work has special meaning, that this is not “just a job.” The Superintendent/CEO helps define our greatest purpose with the motto, “if you’re not helping a student, help someone who is.” Indeed, the students are the reason why our educators do what they do, and our students’ successes are why we love what we do!
More to Life than Work
TCT is a great organization that genuinely cares about each and every educator’s well-being. Rather than demand educators produce more at the expense of their health and personal lives, Tri County Tech strives to ensure that educators have the optimal work life balance. All overtime is kept to a minimum, as educators are encouraged to pursue happy, healthy, and meaningful lives outside of their jobs. Flexibility is also a key piece of that balance for many educators. Educators can rest assured that they may always feel comfortable asking for time off if their attention is needed at home or with family at specific events. It is common practice for educators to be allowed time during the work day to attend their children’s functions such as class parties or sporting events. Indeed, 97% of educators feel that people are encouraged to balance their work life and their personal life at TCT.
Embracing the Family
Work life balance may imply the two are separate entities, but in reality, most of us are not living two separate lives that require a teeter-totter balancing act. Rather, work and “life” should complement one another. As such, TCT embraces a culture of “family first,” hosting numerous events throughout the year that center around the educator’s family. Whether it’s a Halloween walk with their children, dinner and a ball game with the family, a day at the zoo, or a trip to the Air and Space Museum, the Tri County Tech family extends to the educator’s family as well. One educator says, “…administration has always encouraged us to put our families first. I have heard this many times, ‘Family First!’ This shows how committed they are to their staff and I appreciate it very much. It says a lot about how much they truly care about their employees.”
It’s the Small Things…
In addition to flexible schedules, a family-oriented culture, and a state-of-the-art fitness center, TCT employees have access to onsite dry cleaning pick up and drop off, an onsite cafeteria (the Osage Market) that offers daily specials, a grill, a salad bar, and two soda machines (with crushed ice!), onsite cosmetology services like haircuts, manicures/pedicures, and waxing, and auto service. Being able to eat a healthy meal on campus if you were unable to pack your lunch, grab a haircut over your break, or drop off your car for an oil change are all unique services offered to the TCT Educator.
Best Childcare in the City
If you are a working parent, TCT provides one of the greatest benefits there is: childcare at our three-star, NAC and NAEYC-accredited Child Development Center (CDC). Not only voted by the population of Bartlesville, OK as the best in the city, educators also receive the care at half the price. This equates to a savings of about $3,000 per year. Educators also have access to their children for nursing or visitation during the work day. On days when the local schools are closed or out due to teacher meetings, educators can bring their children to the CDC for the day. The CDC also provides a summer camp for school age children through the summer months.
Undoubtedly, part of achieving an optimal balance of working and living hinges on having time off to rest, recuperate and tend to personal matters. TCT’s generous leave program for new 12 month employees includes 12 sick paid days, 10 paid vacation days, three paid bereavement days, and approximately 24 paid holidays, including two weeks over the Christmas holiday and one week at Spring Break. As tenure with the organization progresses so does the vacation time. 12-month employees accrue 10 days of vacation in years one through five, 15 days of vacation in years six through 15, and 20 days of vacation in years 16+. In addition, employees are paid for inclement weather days (days that the school closes due to snow or other inclement weather). Who doesn’t love a snow day?!
Psychologically and Emotionally Healthy Place to Work
TCT is committed to creating a systemic culture that values diversity and inclusion. A diverse, inclusive environment is an integral component of creating learning communities and environments where people feel safe, respected, valued, and empowered to reach their full potential. 98% of TCT employees feel they can be themselves while at work, and 94% believe TCT is a psychologically and emotionally healthy place to work.
Top Small Workplaces in the Country
At Tri County Tech, we don’t just stand behind our work. We stand behind the people who make it possible. A positive work environment is essential to a healthy business and has been a central component of our success. So we’re proud to announce that TCT has earned a place among of the country’s Best Small and Medium Workplaces recently announced by consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
Tri County Tech came in 32nd on the list and is the only public school in the United States to be named to Fortune’s Small and Medium Great Place to Work List. Additionally, Tri County Tech is the only organization in Oklahoma to be named to the list. Read more at Fortune.com or at Great Places to Work.
Tri County Tech won this accolade based on employees’ anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride, and camaraderie at work. Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process. Among the findings from the study: trust fuels business performance. For example, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces enjoy roughly three times the revenue growth of their peers, even as they provide a better experience for their people.
Top 100 Workplaces for Women
Tri County Tech is honored to announce that after surveying more than 135,600 female employees, Great Place to Work® and Fortune recognized Tri County Tech as the 62nd best on the 100 Best Workplaces for Women list in 2015 and again as 20th on the list in 2016. We consider this honor exceptionally notable because the recognition is based on women’s own assessments of the quality and fairness of our workplace.
Tri County Tech and the 99 other winning companies were selected based on evaluations by over 135,600 female employees on Great Place to Work’s Trust Index© employee survey. Women considered everything from the fairness of their company’s promotions, to who has access to information and leadership, the level of support for employees’ personal lives, and the degree of inclusiveness and connection they feel with colleagues Scores also take into account how well-represented women are within the workforce, management, and executive positions; how positively women experience their workplace’s fairness; and how favorable women’s experiences are compared to the 138,000 men also surveyed.

Top 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back
Tri County Tech is also honored to be named number 46 on the Inaugural List for the Top 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back list. Companies on the 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back list offer their employees the chance to make a positive impact on and off the job.
Fortune asked Great Place to Work to determine the winners by taking into account both the extent to which employees at these companies feel they are able to make a difference in their communities as well as the degree to which they have the support of their organizations to give back. Great Place to Work surveyed more than 240,000 randomly-selected employees and collected program information from nearly 600 organizations. Employees rated the difference they make at work, the meaningfulness of their jobs, and the impact they feel their organization makes in its community. Two-thirds of each company’s score is based on this employee feedback, which also takes into account written comments about the importance giving back has in these workplaces.
The remaining third of each company’s score is based on the generosity of its community-oriented programs, relative to its size and revenue. Great Place to Work considered the total financial value of charitable donations made as a percent of the company’s revenue; the average amount donated by the company per employee through matching programs; how many paid volunteer hours the company provides its staff; and whether the company offers flexible hours and compressed scheduling benefits that would allow employees to fit volunteer activities into their work lives.
