Frontline Education Announces Recent Awards from Tech & Learning and Ragan HR Platforms

Malvern, PA, Sept. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Frontline Education, a leading provider of administration software purpose-built for educators in K-12, announced today that it is a winner of the Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence: Back to School 2022 for its Absence Mobile App in both Primary and Secondary Education Categories. Additionally, Ragan Communications’ Platinum HR Awards named Frontline as an Honorable Mention recipient in four award categories: DEI, Learning and Development, Rewards and Benefits and Wellness Categories.

The Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence is a program recognizing innovation in the EdTech industry. The program’s “Back-to-School” category is a way to celebrate the most impressive products and solutions that support the work of school leaders, teachers, students and parents as they prepare for the new 2022-2023 school year. The Frontline Absence Mobile App won for the integrated mobile experience it provides for staff, administrators and substitutes, enabling all users to manage time quickly and effectively in the palm of their hands.  

“As K-12 school districts enter the busy back-to-school season while navigating the labor shortage, best-in-class technology will support them in increasing opportunities to place substitutes and to minimize students’ lost instructional time,” said Kevin Haugh, Chief Product Officer of Frontline Education. “Districts that leverage the Frontline Absence Mobile App see fill rates that are on average 13% higher than districts with lower mobile adoption, demonstrating the product’s ability to enhance operational efficiency. It’s an honor to be recognized by Tech & Learning for the value our product delivers to school districts across the country.”

Ragan’s Platinum HR Awards celebrate the people, programs and products that are dedicated to driving HR success for their organizations and employees. Frontline was chosen from a wide pool of entries to receive Honorable Mention recognition in four categories for its 2021 programs. 

  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Measurable efforts in creating and expanding a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace through programming, awareness and engagement strategies
  • Learning and Development: Innovative Organizational Development programs designed to elevate a company’s workforce
  • Rewards and Benefits: Comprehensive benefits programs that help to engage and retain employees
  • Wellness: Well-being strategies that help to create a healthier work environment

Last year the company launched an employee-focused strategic program designed to create a positive environment for employees where engagement is likely to flourish. Frontline LIFT encompasses programming for Learning, Inclusion, Fitness and Well-being and Talent Development.

“Our employees are the lifeblood of our organization and enable us to live our mission of partnering with K-12 schools in their pursuit of excellence,” said Jodi Dickinson, Chief Human Resources Officer of Frontline Education. “Providing ongoing engagement efforts and opportunities for professional development and growth, our comprehensive programs are designed to help employees thrive as individuals and within the overall Frontline community. We are thrilled to receive this distinction from Ragan and will use it as further motivation to maintain our status as a desirable place to work.”
