More companies boost faith-based support for employees

Karen Diefendorf, second right, director of Chaplain Services at Tyson Foods, talks with employees at the company’s poultry plant in Springdale, Ark. The company deploys a team of more than 90 chaplains to comfort and counsel employees at its plants and offices. The program began in 2000.
Brian Grim, president of the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, speaks at the launch event for the Corporate Pledge on Religious Freedom in Washington. Grim says most companies – over the past few decades – have given religion less attention in their diversity/inclusion programs than other categories such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and disabilities.
