"We had a great experience with the Best Christian Workplace Institute. The
survey tool asked good questions and was easy to complete. The reports were very
comprehensive and we received great coaching to help interpret the results and
determine next steps. The staff was very courteous and provided great service to

"The Joni and Friends family couldn’t be more honored or excited to be recognized
as one of the best Christian workplaces. It has always been our mission, not only to
reach out and serve those affected by disability, but to serve and treat each other in a
Christ-like manner right here, starting with our co-workers and peers."

"Our logic’s held true. As our BCWI scores have improved, indicating our improvement
in organizational health, so have our other key measures including: annual campers served,
camper retention, financial measures and most importantly our key spiritual measures of
our campers and staff."
President and CEO
"Asking employees what they really think is risky because you may not like what
you discover. Nevertheless, the number of ministries taking part in this survey
over the last three years speaks well of Christian leaders who truly want a
Christ-honouring workplace. The ten ministries being recognized this year are an
inpsiration for the rest of us and in the spirit of Hebrews 10:24-25 are
spurring us on to greater love and good deeds within our own workplaces."

"I think this is the most effective and significant survey we have ever done."
Bethesda Christian School
"Being chosen as one of the Best Christian Places to Work was tremendously
beneficial to Shepherds. However, we were also challenged by the feedback from
the survey. The Institute does a very thorough job and the report was excellent.
We clearly saw areas that needed improvement as well as areas where we were
Vice-President of Program
"The Best Christian Workplaces Institute opened our eyes to what employees
thought as they drove into work everyday. What we discovered was that
improvement was needed- more improvement than we had previously imagined. The
results helped us laser in on the key issues holding us back from our mission.
As a result, today our staff is more engaged than ever before. This survey has
been a gift to the congregation. "

"We found the Best Christian Places to Work survey and experience to be very
beneficial to our school. It was a great opportunity for us to examine our HR
policies and procedures from the employees’ perspective. The feedback we
received was thorough, well organized, and relevant to our programs. Well worth
the small amount of time and money we spent!"
King's Way Christian School
"Participating in the Best Christian Places to Work survey provided wonderful
exposure for Whitworth University and that makes it attractive to employees as well
as students. Perhaps even more importantly, the project has spurred ongoing
conversations about how to further improve Whitworth as a working and learning
community. While the survey results were generally quite positive, there was
good, concrete feedback for how we could build on our strengths and be even more
effective in some areas."
Director of Communications
"ACSI participated in the Best Christian Places to Work Survey this past year and
were pleased with the very high level of participation by our employees. We used
the survey results extensively to identify areas that we could and should
improve upon. We provided full disclosure of the results to our employees then
spent much time with the Executive Staff analyzing areas of concern. It is our
hope that the survey will be continued as we found both the process and the
opportunity to use the results extremely productive."
Association of Christian Schools International
"The Best Christian Workplaces Institute has been a huge blessing to us. Our leadership takes these surveys very seriously. We want to know what our staff think about our organization. We want to know where we need to grow, but also where we’re succeeding."

Coalition for Christian Outreach
"Participation has increased my appreciation of the company that I work
for…Several companies that I am familiar with placed near our company in the
2003 standings. I realized that there are other Christian publishing companies
that share our sense of mission and workplace charisma. This was encouraging. I
also felt a sense of community with other Christian publishers through taking
