The importance of our culture and how we work is something that means a great deal to me. As a company, we choose to spend time debating and cultivating our workplace as we grow. We know there will be changes along the way, people that come and go, and different business problems we get to face every year. This is why we began using, three years ago, the Best Christian Workplace Institute’s survey of all our staff to have a measurement of where we are each year. We had all our employees take the survey again this year and are delighted to hear that we obtained the 2016 Best Christian Workplace Institute Award for great places to work. We are proud of this honor and look for ways to get better each time around. No culture is perfect (and ours is certainly not) but leveraging a tool like the BCWI to measure our success has been extremely helpful in creating an open, performance drive, and dare I say, fun place to work.
"Garland Heart has developed a remarkably flourishing employee culture placing them in the top 10% of product and service organizations in our survey database. Staff communicate how much the leadership cares about its staff and clients. Their employees indicated they feel highly involved in decisions that impact their work. They are a great example an organization that lives its values.” - Al Lopus, President of BCWI
