May 22, 2013 – The Spokane Community Partners announced today the Spokane, WA winners of the 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility for their exemplary workplace practices.
Given by Families and Work Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management, the Sloan award recognizes employers that have distinguished themselves in Spokane, WA and across the country. Winners are identified through a rigorous selection process, which involves an evaluation of employers’ flexibility programs and practices (from telecommuting to job sharing to phased retirement programs) and a confidential employee survey.
Spokane’s Community Partners is the official host of the awards in Spokane, WA.
“These employers use flexibility as an effective workplace strategy and, in doing so, help their employees meet their work and life needs and help the organization achieve strong business results,” said Andrea Morgan, INSHRM President. “We congratulate them for being a role model for other businesses.”
“These employers are leaders in leveraging flexibility strategies to attract and keep the best talent. They experience first-hand the benefits that an effective and flexible workplace has on their employees, organizational culture and bottom line,” says Kelly Sakai-O’Neill, senior manager of applied research at Families and Work Institute.
Greater Spokane Incorporated will recognize recipients of the Sloan Awards for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility at their Good Morning Greater Spokane Breakfast June 14, Friday, at The Spokane Club with doors opening at 7:00 a.m. Online registration can be done at GSI’s website, click here.
