B’nai B’rith Camp was named the state’s seventh-best large nonprofit to work for in Oregon Business magazine’s fourth annual 100 Best Nonprofits to Work for in Oregon. Winners were revealed Sept. 27 at the Portland Downtown Hilton.
“We’re incredibly honored and humbled to have been chosen number seven out of the 100 Best Nonprofits in Oregon,” said BB Camp Executive Director Michelle Koplan. “Without the amazing and dedicated staff and lay leadership, BB Camp would not be able to create such magical and transformative experiences for our community’s children.”
“In the fall of 2009, BB Camp became an independent nonprofit organization. At that point, we organized the agency with our employees’ and volunteers’ needs and attitudes in mind. Our goal has been to create a caring and compassionate workplace for those professional staff and lay leaders who make the real magic of camp happen. We’re delighted to be recognized for our efforts.”
Nearly 5,000 employees at 169 nonprofits throughout the state participated in the project. Based on the magazine’s widely regarded 100 Best Companies project, the nonprofit version was created to recognize a critical business sector that employs hundreds of thousands of workers.
There was no cost to enter the survey, which was comprised of an anonymous employee survey and an employer benefits survey.
The 5,000 employees who participated in the survey ranked satisfaction and importance of workplace qualities in six categories: benefits and compensation; work environment; decision-making and trust; performance management; career development and learning; and sustainable workplace practices.
