Peoria, IL (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
Samaritan Ministries International, a health care sharing ministry based in Peoria, Illinois, has been named a Best Christian Workplace for the sixth time.
Best Christian Workplaces Institute awarded the designation for 2012 to Samaritan and 37 other ministries, schools and organizations.
“I am encouraged and excited for Samaritan Ministries to be certified once again as one of the Best Christian Workplaces for 2012,” said Ted Pittenger, founder and president of SMI.
“Our 75 staffers have largely embraced the foundational culture that the leadership team has laid. It is great to work in such an encouraging atmosphere.”
But the designation isn’t only about being able to tout Samaritan Ministries as a great place to work, Pittenger said. It’s also about continuing to improve.
“We also appreciate the solid input that the Best Christian Workplace survey provides us as a tool to see where we need to make improvements,” he said.
To earn the distinction as a Best Christian Workplace, organizations participate in the Best Christian Workplace Institute's employee engagement survey and meet predetermined standards of excellence.
The survey covers issues such as job satisfaction, commitment, Christian witness, supervisory effectiveness, work satisfaction, personal growth and development, management effectiveness, customer/supporter satisfaction, teamwork, communications, and pay and benefits.
Staff members confidentially respond to more than 55 questions addressing these topics.
Samaritan Ministries International seeks to help members of the Body of Christ carry out the Great Commission through ministries that enable Christians to better obey Jesus' commands. This is currently done through the Christian Health Care Newsletter health care sharing ministry and the Morning Center maternity hospital ministry.
More than 21,000 households in the U.S. and other countries participate in health care sharing through Samaritan Ministries.
