About CRS:

Catholic Relief Services carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. Our Catholic identity is at the heart of our mission and operations. We welcome as a part of our staff and as partners people of all faiths and secular traditions who share our values and our commitment to serving those in need.


The Employee Engagement Team within Human Resources works to understand and improve how staff navigate and experience their journey with CRS. It supports and advocates for an employee experience that celebrates the potential of all CRS staff and offers staff the opportunity to work with meaning and grow with purpose, in a caring community that empowers their pursuit of excellence. The team does this by:

· Creating meaningful opportunities for staff connection and community-building

· Facilitating the recognition and celebration of staff and their accomplishments

· Providing a motivating, useful, and kind welcome/orientation to new & transferring staff

· Continuously listening and learning from staff, including understanding and addressing the “sticking points” that frustrate staff

· Deepening staff connection with the “why” behind their work

· Celebrating CRS’ Catholic identity

These functions require strong internal communications to be successful, using a variety of media (e.g., audio, video, internal social media, visuals). For example, the team recently launched an internal podcast. Meanwhile, events coordination is critical to ensuring staff gatherings happen smoothly and maximize their potential to build community.

About Catholic Relief Services

Catholic Relief Services was founded in 1943 by the Catholic Bishops of the United States to serve World War II survivors in Europe. Since then, we have expanded in size to reach 85 million people in 101 countries on five continents.

Our mission is to assist impoverished and disadvantaged people overseas, working in the spirit of Catholic social teaching to promote the sacredness of human life and the dignity of the human person. Although our mission is rooted in the Catholic faith, our operations serve people based solely on need, regardless of their race, religion or ethnicity. Within the United States, CRS engages Catholics to live their faith in solidarity with the poor and suffering people of the world.

CRS is motivated by the example of Jesus Christ to ease suffering, provide development assistance, and foster charity and justice. We are committed to a set of Guiding Principles and hold ourselves accountable to each other for them.

As the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States, CRS is governed by a board of directors comprising clergy, most of them bishops elected by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, as well as religious and Catholic lay men and women.
