Leading Places to Work
Are Jewish organizations great places to work?
Over 80,000 professionals spend their days working in the Jewish nonprofit sector. These professionals are the most valuable asset of organizations and their experience at work dramatically impacts their success.
To support organizations in creating even better places to work, Leading Edge conducts an annual Employee Experience Survey. The survey offers Jewish nonprofit leaders and managers with insights into their employees’ experiences at work, and allows them to identify organizational strengths as well as growth areas that can be addressed to improve workplace culture. More than 45,000 people at nearly 400 organizations have received the survey to date. Learn more...
Leading Edge offers ongoing support by helping organizations administer Pulse Surveys—short, simple surveys designed to get quick feedback on how your employees are experiencing work in the current environment. Pulse Surveys can be administered at any time or cadence, and the questions they ask can be completely customized to meet your needs. Many organizations use Pulse Surveys to measure progress over time and to gauge whether changes are having the desired impact on organizational culture. Learn more...

The community for “the people people”
The People Pro Collective (P2C) is a community of practice bringing together executives, HR leaders, and other professionals who focus on talent and organizational culture, connecting them with one another and providing tools that support their work.
In parallel to the Employee Experience Survey, Leading Edge also offers The CEO Survey, which was created to help Leading Edge understand the unique experiences of Jewish nonprofit CEOs, their relationships with their boards and senior teams, and their most common strengths and struggles. It can also help CEOs understand and contextualize their own experiences, and help boards and funders understand the needs and challenges of leaders today.

"Many emerging leaders are willing to take on challenging roles, but not in organizations with rigid cultures that lack collaboration, innovation, and autonomy... Change must happen at the organizational level, and leaders—both the professional leaders and the lay leaders—must take responsibility for promoting that change."
— The Bridgespan Group, “Cultivating the Next Generation of Leaders for Jewish Nonprofits,” 2014
