Mercer Island, WA (Vocus) March 6, 2009
The Best Christian Workplaces Institute (BCWI) announced that Denver Rescue Mission is included in the 2009 list of certified Best Christian Workplaces in the US. What makes Denver Rescue Mission unique is that their staff is satisfied with their retirement plans. Also, they have met their performance goals over the past year.
In order to be certified, organizations must complete the Best Christian Workplaces Institute Employee 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, rating each statement as either 1 (strongly disagree), 2 (disagree), 3 (neutral), 4 (agree) or 5 (strongly agree).
The 2009 survey involved more than 11,000 employees in 113 organizations across the US to identify great workplaces with a Christian mission and/or values.
"The Best Christian Workplaces survey consistently reveals that Christian employees appreciate God-glorifying relationships shaped by the fruit of the Spirit." Denver Rescue Mission was no exception; one employee put it this way: when asked what they appreciated most about Denver Rescue Mission they responded, "In enjoy the loving co-workers and the Christian environment."
The Best Christian Workplaces Institute has surveyed more than 80,000 employees across North America in the past eight years. BCWI is a research based organizational and human resources consulting firm based on Mercer Island, Washington.
"No one can deny that Christian organizations are feeling the effects of the nation's worry over the economy. Although we believe that Christian organizations should do all they can to pay competitively, our survey shows that there are other factors even more influential in making your employees feel blessed by their work, including work being a place of community," says Lopus.
