Staffing Solutions Enterprises Recognized Second Year In A Row For Exemplary Workplace Practices
Receives prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility
This prestigious award, part of the national When Work Works project administered by Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), recognizes employers of all sizes and types in the Northern Ohio area and across the country.
“As a certified women’s business enterprise and predominately female staff, we made it a mission to implement an effective and flexible working environment for our employees,” says SueAnn Naso, President of Staffing Solutions Enterprises. “We are thrilled to receive this prestigious recognition for our workplace practices and look forward to continuing to encourage women’s professional development with our work-life balance strategies.”
Workplace flexibility — such as telecommuting, remote desktop access, and part-time work— has proven to help businesses remain competitive while also benefiting employees. Flexibility in combination with other aspects of an effective workplace—such as learning opportunities and supervisor support for job success—can have a powerful impact on employee engagement and motivation.
“Our research consistently finds that employees in effective and flexible workplaces have greater engagement on the job and greater desire to stay with their organization. In addition, they report lower stress levels and better overall health,” said Ellen Galinsky, FWI president.
The Sloan Awards are unique for their rigorous, two-step selection process, which involves an evaluation of employers’ flexibility programs and practices, and a confidential employee survey on the key ingredients of an effective and flexible workplace. All applicants are measured against national norms from the National Study of Employers.
“As a recipient of the 2013 Sloan Award, Staffing Solutions Enterprises ranks among the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace,” Galinsky said. “In addition, what makes this honor so special is that their employees have corroborated this, affirming that it is indeed an effective and flexible workplace.”
When Work Works is a national project to educate the business community on the value of workplace flexibility by sharing research and promising practices, and conducting the annual Sloan Awards. It is an ongoing initiative of FWI and SHRM.
