The CBN Culture
CBN is a mission-driven ministry whose objective is to proclaim
Jesus Christ throughout the world. At the same time, CBN is recognized
as a professionally accomplished leader in the field of media and communications.
This unique combination provides a work environment that allows team
members to grow both professionally and spiritually. The mission of
CBN is to help meet both the spiritual and physical needs of people.
For CBN team members, this means they can end each workday knowing they
have been part of something profoundly important. At CBN, a "job" is
not as much a job as it is a calling!
Recognizing the importance of maintaining a strong commitment
to the spiritual priorities of CBN, employees gather each day for a
time of worship, prayer and sharing from God's Word. Chapel is considered
part of the paid workday.
CBN encourages employees to take time away from their normal
work schedule for spiritual, mental and physical refreshment. Vacation
is awarded as follows:
Vacation hours are accrued on a monthly basis.
- Full-time regular exempt employees receive 136 hours per year.
- Full-time regular non-exempt employees receive 96 hours per year (136
hours per year after five years of service).
- Full-time regular exempt and non-exempt employees completing 6 years of service accrue additional hours of vacation each year up to a maximum of 176 hours.
CBN observes the following holidays:
- New Year's Day (half day)*
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day (half day)*
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
* On these days, employees gather for a time of worship,
prayer and communion.
Regular full-time employees accrue sick leave at the rate of 8 hours per month. Regular part-time employees accrue sick leave at the rate of 4 hours per month.
Medical and Dental Insurance
CBN offers employees a choice of three medical plans - an HMO, a Preferred Provider Organization and a High Deductible Health Plan/Health Savings Account. A comprehensive Dental plan is also available.
Life insurance is provided at twice the employee's annual salary, rounded
up to the next thousand. There is no cost to the employee for this coverage.
The employee may purchase additional Voluntary Life coverage.
Both short term and long term disability insurance coverages are provided at no cost to the employee:
Short term: After an employee is unable to report to work for
14 consecutive days, Short Term disability pays 60 percent of base weekly
salary up to a maximum of $1,000/week for 26 weeks.
Long term: After the employee has been out of work for 26 weeks,
this insurance pays 66 2/3% of base monthly salary, up to a maximum of $7,500/month.
403(b) Retirement Plan
Administered by Fidelity Investments, the 403(b) plan is provided as a means of saving for retirement. CBN currently offers full time employees a maximum 4% matching contribution of eligible compensation for each payroll period. Employees have full control over their investment portfolio and are vested immediately.
In the event of a work-related injury, this insurance pays
66.67 percent of weekly wages for time lost from work in excess of seven
days up to the maximum set by law.
