MOPS International is Certified as a 2011 Best Christian Workplace
Mercer Island, WA – January 3, 2011 – The Best Christian Workplaces Institute (BCWI) is excited to announce that MOPS International is Certified as a 2011 Best Christian Workplace! MOPS International qualified for this honor due to high scores in the anonymous BCW employee survey. The BCW survey has been conducted in the US and Canada for the past 8 years and made its debut in Australia this year. Each of these organizations has a Christian mission and/or values.
Employees of MOPS International answered more than 50 questions measuring how well MOPS International is doing when it comes to employee job satisfaction, employee organizational commitment, Christian witness, supervisory effectiveness, opportunities for personal growth and development, customer/supporter satisfaction, teamwork, communication and fairness of pay and benefits. Additional open-ended questions give the leaders of MOPS International an opportunity to glean even more insight into how they are doing and ways they can improve.
“Although our survey covers a wide range of qualities that a God-glorifying organization should exhibit, there are some foundational qualities that emerge among the best of the best. These include trust in leadership and a unity found in faith.” When asked what makes MOPS International great, one employee explained, “It is a ministry that is making a difference in people all around the world. The people that work here. Management is approachable and open to ideas. They recognize hard work and encourage us.”
Al Lopus, President of BCWI notes, “We salute this year’s Best Christian Workplaces for their intentional efforts to nurture an organizational culture that reflects God’s divine nature; even in a difficult economy. One benefit of a healthy organizational culture is that it translates to meaningful ministry growth, based on our research. We would strongly encourage anyone who isn’t working in a Christian organization to consider one of these, especially if they have a desire to be a part of a mission greater than themselves.”
The Best Christian Workplaces Institute’s vision is that Christian workplaces would be the best and most effective workplaces in the world and their employee survey is one way that they help to equip Christian organizations to be just that. Over the past 8 years they have surveyed more than 100,000 employees across North America and Australia. BCWI is a research based organizational and human resources consulting firm based on Mercer Island, Washington.
