We are happy to announce that Grace International School has been named a Best Christian Workplace for 2023! The BCWI survey is taken by Christian organizations across the globe. Our selection as a Certified Best Christian Workplace demonstrates our commitment to building and protecting a vibrant work culture and prioritizing healthy working relationships among our staff.
BCWI is an important benchmark in making sure we, as an organization, invest in our staff and create a caring and healthy working environment so they can grow into the people God has called them to be. As a school, we have participated in the BCWI survey for many years. During that time, we have consistently made efforts to improve as an organization and have increased our overall score by 16 points since 2021. This represents a comparative improvement within K–12 schools from the 44th percentile up to the 68th percentile.
The results of this year’s survey clearly indicate that our staff believe our Christ-centered values make GIS a great place to work. We also saw improvements in areas like inspirational leadership, healthy communication, and sustainable strategy. The results also highlighted that we have caring leaders , a great campus, respectful and engaged students, supportive and encouraging parents, and…good food!
There is still room for improvement, and we are committed to working hard to achieve that outcome. While we are well within the Healthy range, we would like to push on to Flourishing because we know that will help us to continue to fulfill our mission and vision and faithfully serve our staff, students, and parents for many years to come. Thank you, GIS staff, for your dedication to serving this international community of people who are making a difference all around the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
