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 workday 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, 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
Our Educators are offered discounted childcare at our three-star, 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 over $3,000 per year. Educators also have access to their children for nursing or visitation during the workday. 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?!
