HILLTOWN TWP., Pa. - Pearl S. Buck International, the Bucks County humanitarian organization, has been named one of 2014's 50 Best Non-Profits to Work For by The NonProfit Times.
"The distinction is testament to the organization's mission-centric workplace, where employees live the legacy of Pearl S. Buck in order to build a global community through child adoption, child sponsorship and the preservation of the Pearl S. Buck House," said a spokesman for the organization in a news release.
"To be among the nation's best non-profits is very rewarding," said Janet Mintzer, the organization's president and CEO.
Mintzer said Pearl S. Buck International has "a committed, passionate workforce" and it is great that others now are learning how that workforce feel about working for the non-profit.
She said the timing of the recognition also is significant because her organization is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
The news release explains the organization was honored by the designation as a result of responses to an Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey. It analyzed how employees rated the non-profit on leadership, planning, corporate culture, communications, work environment, training, pay, benefits and more.
The organization ranked 33 among the top 50 and 15 among small non-profits with 15-49 employees.
