Who are the Certified Best Christian Workplaces in 2020? Well today, we highlight just a few of the 157 organizations we are honoring this week. We invite you to join us on today's show, as we discuss some of the practices these organizations do to set the standard as the best, most-effective places to work in the world.

Welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast. Today, I want us to focus on just one question: During this past year, how did some Christian organizations, churches, and Christian-led companies actually create the best, most effective workplaces while facing a grave pandemic and economic uncertainty?  

Well today, I have the great pleasure of introducing the list of the 2020 Certified Best Christian workplaces. We publish this list each year to highlight organizations that are living our vision. We believe that Christian-led organizations set the standard as the best, most effective workplaces to work on in the world.  And to help describe a couple of key organizations that are on our list. I am joined today by BCWI senior leaders: Cary Humphries, Regional Director, and Giselle Jenkins, Culture Consulting Director for BCWI. I've also asked Jay Bransford, our President and Chief Operating Officer to help facilitate the discussion. 

Thank you, all, for joining me on the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

Having a team filled with outstanding talent is a game-changer for any organization. Today, we talk with a couple of culture leaders in a large church who have leveraged their culture to be relentlessly selective in creating a staff that is humble, hungry, and healthy. To learn how, listen in!

In 2016, Outreach Magazine named Traders Point Christian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana as one of the "100 Fastest-GrowingChurchesin America." Such growth alone is significant. Yet, there's another reason to celebrate. I call it the hidden story of another kind of growth that can inspire churches everywhereIt’s a story you need to hear.  

With me right now are the two best people I know who are ready to reveal this hidden story. Kristen Miller is Culture & Development Director at Traders Point Christian Church. With Kristen is Emily Hoover, Talent Manager at Traders PointKristen and Emily, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

Happy New Year and thanks for joining us! Today, we highlight what we see as the seven trends of workplace culture in 2021! Listen in to see if you agree with this about what you see coming in the new year.

Most of us are really happy 2020 is over! As we look at 2021, what can we look forward to as we lead our organizations, or as the Bible suggests, shepherd the flock that God has entrusted to us?

Now for the past several years, we have outlined the trends we project for the next year. These have become some of the most-read blog posts and downloaded podcast episodes. In fact, last January, the first trend I predicted was "the virtual workplace is poised for even more growth as tech-savvy employees work remotely!" I never dreamed that COVID would be the thing that would cause this to be so true!

So, this year we plan to ask, what are the seven leading trends likely to shape the vitality and future of your culture, your organization's workplace, in 2021? So let's go.
