Mercer Island, WA – January 5, 2010 – The Best Christian Workplaces Institute (BCWI) and the Canadian Council of Christian Charities announced that MOPS International is included in the 2010 list of Certified Best Christian Workplaces. What makes MOPS International unique is that the leadership explains the reasons behind major decisions. Also, they seek the suggestions of employees.
In order to be Certified, organizations must complete the Best Christian Workplaces Institute Staff Engagement survey and meet predetermined standards of excellence. The survey covers such issues as: job satisfaction, organizational commitment, Christian witness, supervisory effectiveness, work satisfaction, personal growth and development, management effectiveness, customer/supporter satisfaction, teamwork, communications and pay and benefits. Employees answer more than 50 questions addressing these topics.
The 2010 survey involved 6,700 employees in 62 organizations across North America to identify great workplaces with a Christian mission and/or values.
“The Best Christian Workplaces survey consistently reveals that Christian employees find satisfaction in a job they believe has eternal significance in an environment of individuals who share their passion.” MOPS International was no exception; one employee put it this way: when asked what they appreciated most about MOPS International they responded, “Great faith-based people who are really dedicated in serving others.”
