LSS Culture

Welcoming and inclusive work experience

When you’re looking for a new position, you want to find an organization that offers you the best overall package, but you also need to consider the heart of the organization. At Lutheran Social Services (LSS), we take both responsibilites seriously.  

We take pride in offering our employees extras beyond your salary, live our commitment to a corporate heart each day, honor flexible work schedules, strive for diversity and openly share information among our employees. 

Beyond your salary 

Your salary is just one part of your overall employment package at LSS – add to that our many perks.

LSS pays more than 80 percent of eligible employees' individual and family health care insurance premiums. Plus, we offer part-time or flex-time employees (scheduled to work 30+ hours per week) health care benefits. LSS also offers employees up to 24 days of paid time-off (PTO), which encompasses time off for ill dependents. Learn more about our outstanding perks.

Corporate heart

The heart of LSS revolves around improving a community’s social needs and practices. Another key area of focus is developing and caring for our employees. With that comes a commitment to fiscal responsibility, human rights, values, ethics and integrity in everything we do. In addition, LSS stresses inclusion and diversity in its hiring practices. 

Flexible work day 

Sometimes your life requires flexibility. We understand that and, if possible, we will work to accommodate your individual request for a flexible, non-traditional work arrangement. We may be able to offer flexibility in your choice in beginning and end hours, the number of hours worked per day, a reduced schedule during certain times of the year, and a change from full- to part-time status and choice in your shift. We also extend choices for breaks and when to take meals.

Seek diversity 

All you have to do is read our mission statement to understand that inclusion and diversity is integral in our organization’s mission. Lutheran Social Services seeks diversity in its staff and volunteers as well as in those it serves. Individuals and organizations are intertwined and must rely on and support one another. Excellence is the standard of quality for all agency services and operations.

Plus, our mission includes a commitment to improve social needs and practices, care and development of employees, and inclusion and diversity.

Open communication 

We also believe strongly in open communication both internally and externally. Our e-newsletter arrives weekly to communicate news relevant to our employees, and we issue special editions for timely announcements. Plus, you’ll find the latest news on our Facebook page devoted to adoption and a general LSS Facebook page. You’ll also find videos posted toYouTube that capture key messages and news.
