Big Brothers Big Sisters Honored as One of the Best Places to Work for Second Consecutive Year by the Orange County Business Journal

SANTA ANA, Calif. (July 1, 2024) – Big Brothers Big Sisters is proud to announce that it has been named one of the 2024 Best Places to Work by the Orange County Business Journal. This prestigious award marks the second consecutive year the agency has received this designation.

The youth nonprofit is celebrated for its workplace culture that fully embraces its mission of mentoring through the professional development and engagement of its employees. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a strengths-based organization, leveraging the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment.  The agency has also implemented an  internal mentoring program to support new hires, whereby new employees are matched with a current team member in a similar role to provide guidance during their first three months. A monthly all-star recognition program also rewards the outstanding work of employees with paid time off and reserved parking.

In addition, Big Brothers Big Sisters’ progressive employee benefits and perks help the agency attract top local professionals. A hybrid work model, generous paid time off, monthly taco lunches, and a culture committee are just a few of the approaches the nonprofit offers to develop a thriving work environment.

“The Best Places to Work award honors the dedication of the passionate professionals who drive our mission,” says Sloane Keane, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters. “Through their life-changing work advocating for mentorship, our employees empower potential not only in the youth we serve but also in their peers and the entire community of Orange County.”

Recipients of the Best Places to Work designation are selected based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Workforce Research Group, a research firm specializing in organizational health and workplace improvement. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture.
