FAITH NEWS SERVICE – (Mercer Island, WA)— Today, Best Christian Workplaces honors 262 faith-based organizations and Christian-owned businesses as Certified Best Christian Workplaces for 2023.

While Certified Best Christian Workplaces represent a broad spectrum of Kingdom impact, they share a common commitment to workplace health and employee engagement. These organizations have made an intentional commitment to grow in areas such as Inspirational Leadership, Healthy Communication, Life-Giving Work, and more. The churches, ministries, schools, and Christian-led businesses that are Certified Best Christian Workplaces are able to further their mission in the world because they have an engaged staff.

Jay Bransford, President, and CEO of Best Christian Workplaces, reflects on the importance of excellence in Christian workplaces: “Each of these Christian-led workplaces shares a common desire—to see their staff be healthy, even flourishing, and represent Christian values and beliefs in a way that attracts people to Christ! At Best Christian Workplaces, we honor and celebrate every Christian leader who actively cares for the people God has entrusted to them (see 1 Peter 5:2). These leaders have courageously asked for feedback, humbly considered that input, and diligently acted on an ongoing basis to improve. These Certified Best Christian Workplaces are champions of the faith who are setting the standard as Christians of what it looks like to be the best, most effective places to work in the world. We are grateful for their commitment to God and for the way they reflect Christ to those they influence.”

Best Christian Workplaces has experienced consultants who work across a variety of Christian organizations, including churches, parachurch ministries, mission organizations, Christian-owned businesses, Christian schools, and universities. Certified organizations score at 4.0 and above on Best Christian Workplaces’ Employee Engagement Survey which is based on rigorous research reflecting more than 20 years of experience. Certified Best Christian Workplaces are spread across the United States and Canada, and also 10 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Oceania.

Current generations in the workforce value a healthy workplace environment and meaningful work. Leaders who provide growth opportunities for their staff and encourage employee participation in decision-making will be able to attract and keep top performers in a competitive labor market. Efforts to continue to focus on employee engagement are increasingly important in the hybrid work environment that is a reality for many organizations.

If you want to invest in employee engagement to create a flourishing workplace, contact Best Christian Workplaces. We will equip and inspire you through our Employee Engagement Survey and professional consulting services to create an engaged, flourishing workplace.
