LITTLETON, Colo., Apr 13, 2015 – WorldVenture is pleased to announce its ranking in the Denver area’s 2015 100 Top Workplaces Survey published by The Denver Post. This is the first year WorldVenture has received a ranking, placing 15th out of 40 organizations in the small business category (fewer than 150 local employees). In addition to making the list, WorldVenture also received a Top Workplace Special Award in Meaningfulness.
WorldVenture is a $30 million organization that sends international missionaries to five continents and 64 countries. It employs 65 local workers at its Littleton home office, who support missionaries serving in cross-cultural contexts. In hopes of influencing global communities through holistic change, WorldVenture missionaries work in eight sectors of society: business, government, church outreach, family and medicine, arts, media, education, and science and agriculture.
“The Meaningfulness Award is an unexpected and deeply pleasing commentary about our WorldVenture Littleton staff,” said Jeff Denlinger, president of WorldVenture. “It is unexpected as quite frankly, we are in a stressful season of immense challenges. Thus, it is deeply pleasing that in the midst of those challenges, we have not lost sight of what WorldVenture is all about.”
WorldVenture’s leadership and human resources team attended a gala held by the Denver Post on April 7. The Denver Post published an article featuring WorldVenture on April 12, along with the full list of other organizations that made the list.
Also published was a selected comment from a WorldVenture employee concerning WorldVenture’s meaningfulness: “Our work is entirely focused on one thing: telling the whole world about Jesus. As a Christian, there is nothing more meaningful than being able to have missions at the center of your work, whatever that looks like.”
Employees at WorldVenture support their missionaries in many different roles. Member care services include partner development coaching, counseling and crisis intervention, care for missionary children and sustaining emotional wellness. WorldVenture also provides leadership development, retirement plans, medical plans, life insurance and many other services to ensure thriving missionary families.
Last fall, Workplace Dynamics, LLC, a surveyor of businesses, conducted the survey of 42,923 Colorado employees in 219 companies to see who would make the fourth annual Top Workplaces list published by The Denver Post. This year, WorldVenture was the only faith-based organization to appear on the list.
