FamilySearch Receives Gallup Workplace Award for Five Consecutive Years

The following is a press release written by FamilySearch:

For the fifth straight year, FamilySearch has received a 2023 Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award in recognition for its professional workplace culture.

“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized with the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award for the fifth consecutive year,” said Hayden Prigmore of FamilySearch, who oversaw the Gallup application process. “We pride ourselves on being a place of work where individuals feel valued, recognized and part of a team that truly supports and encourages each other to grow and improve each day.”

Gallup is a global analytics and advice firm that works with leaders and organizations like FamilySearch. The honor places FamilySearch among the top 1.4% of companies in Gallup’s database, the news release said.

FamilySearch is an international nonprofit organization and website that provides free genealogical records and resources to “help millions of people around the world discover their heritage and connect with family members.” It is sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

FamilySearch strives to create a workplace environment where employees feel valued, supported and empowered to do their work each day. Employees are recognized for excellent work, and there is a robust training program for managers. 

FamilySearch employees support RootsTech at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, Utah, in March 2023.

FamilySearch has created a culture of appreciation and motivation, along with an environment where employees can thrive, said Gallup’s Meridyth Moose.

“The winners of the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award weave employee engagement throughout each stage of the employee life cycle, embedding it in their very culture,” she said. “It’s our privilege to honor organizations that meet the rigorous requirements to achieve the title of Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award winner — an award created nearly two decades ago to celebrate clients that challenge the status quo and raise the bar for what a workplace can be.”

The rigorous selection process for the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award includes submission of detailed information about an organization’s strategy, leadership, performance, accountability, communication, knowledge management, development and ongoing learning, showcasing the organization’s comprehensive approach to creating an exceptional workplace.

“These are world-class organizations that truly make a difference for their employees every day,” Meridyth said.
