Top Christian workplaces honored this week

MERCER ISLAND, Wash. – The Best Christian Workplaces Institute today honors 148 ministries, churches, and Christian-owned businesses as “Certified Best Christian Workplaces.” These organizations participated in the online, confidential employee engagement survey between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.

It marks the largest number of annual certified honorees in BCWI’s 15-year history. The 148 honorees are based primarily in the U.S. and Canada, with Australia, Albania and Guatemala also involved.

Since 2002, more than 233,000 employees from over 900 organizations, churches and Christian-owned businesses have completed the BCWI’s Employee Engagement Survey. This online instrument provides an objective, quantifiable measure of a flourishing workplace culture based on eight factors: fantastic teams, life-giving work, outstanding talent, uplifting growth, rewarding compensation, inspirational leadership, sustainable strategy and healthy communication.

BCWI President, Al Lopus, says, “The workplace excellence of each of these certified honorees confirms the fact that healthy-to-flourishing workplace culture drives the efficiency and productivity essential to organizational effectiveness.”
