For the second consecutive year, the Diocese of Nashville’s Mission Support Office has been named a Top Workplace by The Tennessean, Nashville’s daily newspaper.
The recognition is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization – alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“Pastoral care driven by our mission of ‘Living and Proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, Welcoming All’ extends to providing an encouraging workplace from which we serve the pastors and parishes of the Diocese of Nashville,” said Bishop J. Mark Spalding.
“It is gratifying that our staff at the Mission Support Office sees us as an attractive work environment,” added Brian L. Cooper, Chancellor and Chief Operating Officer of the diocese. “As ‘Team Catholic,’ God’s work is our mission, but we also care about being a supportive employer with competitive benefits and a generally rewarding workplace.”
“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
