Leadership. Culture. Engagement. Flexibility. Fun. Mission-driven. These are a few of BBBSKC's standout categories from the recent Best Places to Work evaluation.
We are happy to share that Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City was selected as one of the 2021 Best Nonprofits to Work For! The NonProfit Times, the leading national business publication for nonprofit managers, partnered with Best Companies Group to identify nonprofit organizations where leaders have excelled in creating quality workplaces.
Nonprofits from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine this year's Best Nonprofits to Work For. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated organization's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.
The NonProfit Times stated that COVID-19 response and resilience, attention paid to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the response to civil unrest set the selected Best Nonprofits apart from the rest.
There are 1.5 million nonprofit organizations in the United States, and 12,569 nonprofit organizations in Kansas City. The NonProfit Times ranked nonprofits both overall and by agency size. BBBSKC ranked 7th in the overall category and 5th in the medium -sized organization category. Click here to learn more about the report.
Here are what some of the BBBSKC team members said makes the agency stand out as a great place to work:
“BBBS makes people inside the organization and outside feel celebrated and seen. There are weekly meetings to 'shout people out,' team-building activities, and team chats. There is generally an environment of encouragement. It is very mission focused and yet still innovative and dynamic.”
“BBBSKC is a place of inclusion, community, and mentorship. Communication is given to us on a daily basis. I feel comfortable in my position and in my goals. The leadership team is very fair and goals are attainable.”
“It's a people-first place to work that cares deeply about the staff, Bigs, Littles, and supporters. It's a fun, safe, respectful, and inclusive environment. What it does best is live the mission — we all want to work here because we believe in the mission and company values.”
“This organization values its employees, creates a safe and fun culture, is responsive to the needs of the employees, and has the mission and vision of the agency in mind in all aspects of decision making and implementation.”
