Compassion is named

a top workplace again

Global child sponsorship organization Compassion International was named one of the world's top workplaces by Gallup Inc., the research and consulting company best known for its public opinion polls. This is the third year in a row that Compassion has received the award, created to single out companies that understand the importance of employee engagement and that excel at creating a thriving workplace culture.

"This award is a testimony to our hardworking, dedicated staff," said Santiago Jimmy Mellado, president and CEO of the Colorado Springs-based nonprofit. "Every employee is committed to our primary objective of releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name. Every day, we come to work with a full understanding of the importance of our mission. That commitment makes our team one of the best-performing workforces in the world."

The award will be presented formally in May at a ceremony in Omaha, Neb.

Compassion International partners with more than 6,000 Christian churches in 26 countries to help feed and clothe an estimated 1.4 million children.
