Christian employers recognized

The Southern Baptist Convention’s publishing arm has been designated one of the nation’s top 500 midsize employers by Forbes magazine for a second consecutive year. LifeWay Christian Resources ranked 196; criteria included how likely workers are to recommend their employer to someone else and how they feel about other employers in their industry.

“To be recognized by Forbes based on employee feedback is especially meaningful,” President and CEO Thom Rainer told Baptist Press. “This is a reflection of our employees’ commitment to LifeWay’s mission.”

Meanwhile, Christian-owned Chick-fil-A has been selected for the Workforce 100 list. Compiled by Workforce magazine, the five-year-old list ranks the top 100 companies excelling in human resources practices. A feature on #45-rated Chick-fil-A said one of CEO Dan Cathy’s policies is hosting new employees for a dinner at his home. 

“Chick-fil-A also has an ambitious career-growth track for hourly employees and a tuition reimbursement program for high school employees, as well as the enticing closed-on-Sunday policy,” the story noted.

The chicken chain also received plaudits recently from the Black Entertainment Network, which ran a feature on California entrepreneur Ashley Lamonthe, at 26 the youngest franchise owner in company history.
