Creating a Culture of Professional Engagement

By Sari Ferro

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Winter 2010

Any organization's achievement is contingent upon its most critical asset: its employees. UJA-Federation of New York has spent the past ten years on a journey of improving its work culture. This effort has been critical in enabling it to compete for top talent in the Jewish nonprofit community and to retain its best employees. UJA-Federation's long-term vision was to be cited by employees, lay leaders, donors, and other Jewish communal professionals as a "great place to work." To achieve our goal we needed to engage our employees by creating a culture that fostered a trusting environment characterized by open communication and comprised of inspirational leadership.
