FAITH NEWS SERVICE – Throughout 2021, record numbers of Americans resigned from their jobs.

These skyrocketing resignation rates—and the resulting hiring and retention crisis—show why workplace culture matters so much. To hold on to great employees, organizations need to create an environment so engaging that people won’t want to leave. These environments provide meaningful work, promote career growth, build trust-based relationships, and emphasize healthy work-life balance—all issues, which if ignored, lead workers to look elsewhere. “We celebrate this year’s Certified workplaces. They are evidence a flourishing culture is an effective antidote to the Great Resignation,” says Al Lopus, CEO and Co-founder of BCWI.

Each ministry, church, and business that made the 2021 list of Certified Best Christian Workplaces has done just that. In spite of the Great Resignation, these organizations have engaged their employees, nurtured healthy teams, and inspired their staff to do great work. These results are based on exemplary ratings provided by employees who completed BCWI’s Employee Engagement Survey.
