Tyndale House Publishers was recently recognized as a Certified Best Christian Workplace for 2017. Seventy-seven other churches, schools, ministry organizations, and Christian-owned businesses also received the honor.
Certified status is based on eight key, quantifiable benchmarks of BCWI’s FLOURISH Model: Fantastic teams, Life-giving work, Outstanding talent, Uplifting growth, Rewarding compensation, Inspirational leadership, Sustainable strategy, and Healthy communication.
These eight benchmarks form the core of BCWI’s groundbreaking Employee Engagement Survey, which has been completed by more than 221,000 employees in 878 organizations, churches and Christian-owned businesses since 2002.
The 58-question online survey is the only available resource of its kind that offers a faith-based organization complete anonymity for all participants and provides the objective, true health of a workplace culture.
Each Certified organization models high levels of communication, transparency, and trust, making their workplaces among the best, most effective in the world.
The 18% increase in the number of Certified organizations since 2012 confirms the unprecedented upward trend we’re now seeing in faith-based organizations, both stateside and internationally, whose improved, healthy-to-flourishing cultures are increasing their organizational impact.
Tyndale House has participated in the survey in 2007, 2009, and 2016, most recently as a benchmark to gauge the company’s progress. Tyndale received high marks with a 99% completion rate. In the debrief meeting, Tyndale’s BCWI consultant commented on Tyndale’s results by saying, “It’s great to be good at the most important stuff.”
Mark Taylor, Chairman and CEO of Tyndale House, said, “It’s an honor to receive this kind of recognition. But the honor belongs to our entire team. A company or any other organization can move forward to do great things only if every member of the team is actively participating both in the mission and in the culture. We have a wonderful group here at Tyndale House.”
