School transportation provider Student Transportation of America (STA)  has been recognized as the only student transportation contractor on the Forbes list of America's Best Employers 2024. The award was presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., a statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

The awards list was announced on Feb. 13 and can be viewed on the Forbes website.     

"We are humbled and honored that Forbes has recognized STA as one of the select few companies who are the 'Best Large Employers 2024.' STA's management team shares values and beliefs and conducts themselves in such a way as to demonstrate daily the appreciation they have for our more than 23,000 employees who go above and beyond what is expected to deliver safe, reliable, and efficient transportation," said Patrick Vaughan, STA's CEO. "School districts across North America recognize and value the importance of being served by a happy workforce. STA has doubled in size, growing 100% over the past five years, which can be directly attributed to our employees and their spirited love for their work. I thank all of these dedicated employees whose work for the school districts and communities made this recognition possible. And, I thank Forbes — and the school districts — for this great honor."

America's Best Employers have been identified in an independent survey from a sample of more than 170,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S.

The final score is based on two types of evaluations:

  • Personal: Given by employees themselves, also known as direct evaluations.
  • Public: Given by friends and family members of employees or members of the public who work in the same industry- also known as indirect evaluations), with a much higher weighting for personal evaluations.

STA was included under the "Large" sized organizations (more than 5,000 employees) and appeared alongside many notable peers from a wide range of industries.

With more than 23,000 employees, STA provides transportation services to more than 1.25 million children daily and serves more than 325 districts across the U.S. and Canada. Every aspect of the operation is designed with the safety of passengers as the top priority, and the company boasts a 95% contract renewal rate.
