We at Cleveland SHRM would like to inform you of an exciting opportunity for your organization to win the prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility which recognizes exemplary employers for using workplace flexibility as an effective strategy to increase business and employee success.
The Sloan Awards are part of When Work Works, a national initiative led by Families and Work Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management. When Work Works helps organizations of all sizes and types become more successful by transforming the way they view and adopt flexible workplaces.
Cleveland SHRM serves as a When Work Works Community Partner. Our role is to educate employers and the community about workplace flexibility and promote the Sloan Award to businesses like yours. The Sloan Award process is a unique opportunity to showcase your organization’s flexibility strategies and better understand how your programs compare to others.
Any organization that employs at least ten people and has been operating for at least one year should apply. The application process takes place in two rounds. In Round I, employers completing an online questionnaire about the flexibility programs and practices at their worksites. Employers that rank among the top 20 percent of employers in the U.S., when compared with national data based on the National Study of Employers, are selected as finalists and move to Round II. In Round II, employers have their employees complete a questionnaire that asks about their individual use of and experiences with flexibility and other aspects of an effective workplace.
