Northeast Ohio Employers Honored for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness
Cleveland SHRM to present Alfred P. Sloan Award at October monthly Chapter Meeting
Cleveland, Ohio (August, 12, 2013) – The Cleveland SHRM Chapter announced today the Northeast Ohio 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 Northeast Ohio and across the country. Winners are identified through a rigorous selection process that involves an evaluation of employers’ flexibility programs and practices (from telecommuting to job sharing to phased retirement programs) and a confidential employee survey that also asks employees about other aspects of the workplace known to lead to employee engagement.
Cleveland SHRM is the official host of the awards in Northeast Ohio.
“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 Lauren Rudman, President of Cleveland SHRM. “We congratulate them for being a role model for other businesses.”
"These employers are leaders in leveraging flexibility and workplace effectiveness (such as opportunities for employees to learn and supervisor support for job success) 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.
Cleveland SHRM will recognize recipients of the Sloan Awards for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility at the October Chapter Luncheon Meeting at 11:30am, Wednesday October 16th, 2013 at Corporate College East.
