WASHINGTON, April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Get your resume ready.
For the third straight year, ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer is among the The NonProfit Times' "Top 50 Best Nonprofits to Work For." ZERO's ranking jumped 18 spots this year, making it the highest ranking cancer charity on the list. This begs the question: Who wants to join the team?
ZERO is looking for high-performing and passionate team players in Fundraising, Communications, and Government Relations, as well as Chapter Directors to be ZERO's boots on the ground in California, the Mid-Atlantic, and the Northeast.
"ZERO's acknowledgement as one of the "Top 50 Best Nonprofits to Work For" is a direct reflection of the talented, selfless employees that work daily for the men and families affected by prostate cancer," said ZERO CEO Jamie Bearse. "We are honored to be ranked for the third consecutive year and will continue to work tirelessly to achieve our mission to end the disease."
This year's ranking reflects the motivation and hard work of ZERO employees, and their dedication to helping the men and families affected by prostate cancer, a disease that will take one man's life every 20 minutes. ZERO works tirelessly every day for the one in seven men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, and has been doing so for twenty years. In those two decades, ZERO has informed millions of men and families through local run/walk events and community awareness efforts and, in partnership with the Patient Access Network Foundation, provided more than $150M in financial assistance to more than 42,000 men.
The ranked nonprofits on this year's list all had common factors in the areas of operation and employee job satisfaction, including leadership and planning, work environment, corporate culture and communications, and pay and benefits. ZERO's values of alignment, impact, transparency, and courage are reflective of the key threads measured by the survey, in addition to a passion for the cause that all ZERO employee's share. ZERO rewards employees with a culture that places value on personal and career growth, freedom, and work-life balance.
The Best Nonprofit program was open to all nonprofits with 501(c)(3) status that have a facility with a minimum of 15 employees in the United States. The assessment process was managed for The NonProfit Times by Best Companies Group (BCG) in Harrisburg, Pa., an independent workplace research firm specializing in identifying and recognizing great places to work throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
