MBU named 7th in St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Top Workplaces

Missouri Baptist University has ranked seventh in the 2020 St. Louis Post-Dispatch annual Top Workplace for large business listings. 

MBU has been consecutively named a Top Workplace since 2013, and is the only higher education institution to be named a top workplace.

The list was published on Wednesday, July 29 and is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to organization success including mission alignment, execution and connection. 

“This recognition reaffirms our commitment to our Christ-centered mission and to fostering a culture where employees feel engaged and flourish,” said Dr. Keith Ross, MBU president. “Our talented faculty and staff are second to none and work enthusiastically to carry out the mission of MBU every day. We celebrate this special recognition because it is based on the insights of our valued team members.”

With more than 700 employees, MBU provides full-time faculty and staff comprehensive medical plans, which cover the individual’s premiums at 100 percent. In addition, MBU participates in a notable retirement program—contributing up to 10 percent of an employees’ salary. 

Employees who have worked full time for one year and their dependents may enroll in undergraduate courses tuition free, and employees are eligible for 50 percent tuition concession for graduate courses. Employees have substantial time off with vacation, sick days, and nine paid holidays, in addition to spring break and Christmas break per department requirements. Employees receive free membership to MBU’s Sports and Recreation Complex, offering access to an indoor track, a state-of the-art training and fitness center and free fitness classes.
