2017's 'Certified Best Christian Workplaces' list released

Article By Kathy Lopus // EEW Magazine News

Share More Christian organizations than ever across the U.S. and internationally are creating healthy workplaces with high levels of communication, transparency and trust.

The Best Christian Workplaces Institute (BCWI) is honoring 78 faith-based organizations as Certified Best Christian Workplaces. 

Certified status is based on eight key, quantifiable benchmarks of BCWI's "FLOURISH Model": fantastic teams, life-giving work, outstanding talent, uplifting growth, rewarding compensation, inspirational leadership, sustainable strategy and healthy communication.

This year, more organizations are being recognized.

"The 18% increase in the number of Certified organizations since 2012 means we're seeing a continuing, upward trend in the number of ministry organizations, churches and Christian-owned businesses building a healthy-to-flourishing culture which, in turn, increases their organizational impact," says BCWI President Al Lopus.
 
These benchmarks form the core of BCWI's groundbreaking Employee Engagement Survey, which has been completed by more than 221,000 employees in 878 organizations, churches and Christian-owned businesses since 2002.
 
The popular 58-question online survey is the only available resource of its kind that offers a faith-based organization complete anonymity for all participants and provides the objective, true health of a workplace culture.
 
Today's announcement is the first of two to reveal BCWI's 2017 Certified organizations. More honorees will be announced in July.
