Habitat for Humanity holds top spot on Indeed’s “Best Nonprofits to Work For” employee ranking
Cheyenne, (December 11, 2017) — Leading affordable housing organization Habitat for Humanity is the best nonprofit in the United States for employees and volunteers, according to an inaugural ranking published by job-hunting site Indeed. Habitat secured the top spot among U.S. nonprofits based on more than 1,200 reviews from current employees, past employees and volunteers.
"It is no surprise that there is a population of people with a strong desire to work toward a greater mission in the nonprofit sector," said Paul D'Arcy, SVP at Indeed. "We've seen a general attraction among employees to work for mission-driven organizations. Employees ranking Habitat for Humanity as the top nonprofit workplace noted its 'amazing' work morale, family-like teams and friendly community."
Headquartered in Atlanta and Americus, Georgia, the global nonprofit operates in more than 1,300 communities across the United States and in more than 70 countries. Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County has built 42 homes locally and has planned four more for 2018.
Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International, believes it is the culture and mission of Habitat which draws people from all backgrounds to work together in unity. With a variety of ways to join in the organization’s efforts—through volunteering, donating or advocating for affordable housing—Habitat’s mission to empower families through safe, decent and affordable shelter appeals to all generations.
“At Habitat, we take pride in being inclusive and mission-driven,” Reckford said. “Our work simply would not be possible without the thousands of staff and volunteers in the United States and around the world who are bound together by a common sense of purpose. This recognition means so much because it comes from those who know our work best.”
