What is the antidote of what many are calling the great resignation? Simply it's a healthy, even flourishing workplace culture where employees are emotionally connected to their jobs and organizations. Listen in today as we discuss the eight keys that boost employee engagement. 

Well, let’s get started. I want to welcome in my colleague, BCWI Director for Consulting Services, Giselle Jenkins. Giselle and I are going to unlock each of the “Eight Ways to Build a Flourishing Workplace Culture.

Have you ever wondered how important improving your workplace culture is? Well, today our guest says of all the changes that you can make in your organization there's one that matters more than all the others—the culture of your organization. Listen in as this pastor describes how working on cultural health is actually at the core of Christian discipleship for any leader.

One of the things I enjoy most about my job is getting to know innovative leaders that are making a difference for the kingdom.  One of those leaders is Jeff Lockyer, the Lead Pastor at Southridge Community Church in St. Catharines, Ontario in the Niagara Region.

Recent reports show consumer prices rose 6.2 percent year over year in October 2021. Adding pressure on employers to raise wages. It's the largest wealth fund increase in over 30 years. So how should Christian-led organizations address compensation practices? Well, listen in as I talk with a compensation expert that can help us get a good grasp on this important topic. 

Today, we’re going to look at Rewarding Compensation, the fifth of the eight drivers that can take the health of your workplace culture to the next level.

Rewarding Compensation is all about providing tangible resources in return for the service your employees provide. My guest has so many wonderful stories and practical strategies that can speak to your own compensation plan and how it can strengthen your organization’s workplace culture.

With that, I want to welcome in my guest, Susan Byers, the founder of Church Compensation Services. Based in Dallas, Church Compensation Services specializes in developing compensation programs utilizing the most relevant, reliable, and robust compensation data available for large and growing churches, and this publication is called the MegaChurch Compensation Report.

Prior to founding Church Compensation Services, Susan served in the Human Resources Department of a large health care organization as the Compensation and Benefits Director.

Susan, I’m so glad you can join us here as part of our new, going series on “The Eight Ways to Build a Flourishing Workplace Culture.”

Many Christian organizations are working to build their workplace culture to keep our best talent from leaving. Part of the challenge has to do with employees working remotely. In today's episode, we focus on how Alpha USA has built a flourishing workplace culture while having a one hundred percent remote staff. Listen in!

As a leader, you need to recruit and retain a high-quality team to help your organization achieve its mission. Having the right people on your team is always important to a thriving organization. But now there are some trends that make recruiting and retaining employees even more challenging. We will address these issues today in our conversation.

I’m delighted to welcome Craig Springer. He is the Executive Director of Alpha USA
