List of Best Christian Workplaces Features 3 NRB Member Organizations

Best Christina WorkplacesThree NRB member organizations were included in the 2013 list of certified Best Christian Workplaces in the U.S.

The organizations are CRISTA Ministries, Joni and Friends, and KSBJ. For Joni and Friends, inclusion this year marks their eighth consecutive year of recognition. For KSBJ, the only radio station on the list, the 2013 list marks their fourth.

“We have really worked hard to make sure that KSBJ continues to be a great place to work,” says Tim McDermott, President and General Manager of KSBJ. “Our staff and our audience have grown quite a bit over the past several years, but even with the growth, we continue to have a staff who are passionate for God, love each other and love to serve people.”

To earn the distinction as a Best Christian Workplace, organizations must participate in the Best Christian Workplaces Institute (BCWI) engagement survey and meet predetermined standards of excellence. The survey covers issues such as job satisfaction, commitment, Christian witness, supervisory effectiveness, personal growth and development, management effectiveness and other factors. Employees confidentially respond to more than 50 questions addressing these topics. 

This year, the BCWI survey is starting its second decade. To date, BCWI has surveyed over 120,000 employees in over 500 organizations in the U.S., Canada and Australia. Participation levels are reportedly growing as 80 organizations have participated in the last six months alone. 

According to the BCWI, attaining BCWI certification is not easy as many organizations survey multiple times before achieving BCWI's certification. BCWI’s purpose is to serve faith-based organizations by creating processes of discovery, facilitating organizational effectiveness and encouraging practices that build healthy workplaces. 

BCWI is a non-profit research-based organizational and human resources firm based on Mercer Island, WA.
