Pella — Christian Opportunity Center is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of Iowa’s Top Workplaces.

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.

Christian Opportunity Center (COC) supports people with disabilities and provides both residential and vocational services to people who benefit from those supports.  COC is unique in its field as it also offers spiritual services, as part of its mission of integrating Christian values in teaching skills for life. The staff at COC work hard in teaching living skills along with job skill training so people with disabilities can live  productive and fulfilling lives.

COC was chosen as #21 out of 100 in the medium sized company category.  Rod Braun, Executive Director for COC, said, “We are honored to have been chosen for the award, particularly as the judges were our employees.”
