This is the sixth year in a row Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands has been included in the top 50 Best Nonprofits to Work For by The NonProfit Times. Our 2017 number one ranking in the small nonprofit category is the highest honor our agency has received from being included in this program.

How are nonprofits selected?
Any nonprofit in the country can nominate their organization, but the creation of the list is far from a simple process. Thousands of nonprofits from around the nation apply to be part of this process but only 50 organizations are chosen.

To be considered for participation, organizations had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

• Must be in business a minimum of 1 year
• Must be a nonprofit organization with 501 (c) 3 status
• Have a facility in the United States
• Have a minimum of 15 employees in the United States
• An organization may enter as a group of nonprofits or as an individual organization as long as each participating organization is a separate legal entity (separate subsidiary). Branch offices may not enter separately from their parent nonprofit unless they are separate legal entities.

Nonprofits from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine Best Nonprofits To Work For. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated organization's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation.

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top nonprofits and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the ranking.
