Camden Delta Consulting recognized for exemplary workplace practices
Consulting firm receives prestigious When Work Works Award in honor of its effective and flexible work environment
By: Camden Delta Consulting
This prestigious award, part of the national When Work Works project administered by the Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), recognizes employers of all sizes and types across the country.
"An important part of our vision is to create an awesome work experience for our associates and to be the very best mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sister's and brothers that we can possibly be. This award is wonderful evidence that we are achieving our vision and building a culture focused on family," said Glen Kallas, Managing Partner and founder of Camden Delta. "We are thrilled to be represented along with the other great organizations who are finding innovative ways to create a flexible and engaged work environment."
The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Worksites must first qualify by ranking in the top 20 percent of the country based on a nationally representative sample of employers. Two-thirds of the evaluation of applicants comes from an employee survey. Applicants are evaluated on six research-based ingredients of an effective workplace: opportunities for learning; a culture of trust; work/life fit; supervisor support for work success; autonomy; and satisfaction with earnings, benefits and opportunities for advancement - all factors associated with employee health, well-being and engagement.
"These employers have excelled at creating effective workplaces yielding tremendously positive results for business success, as well as for their employees' well-being and productivity,"
"The 2016 When Work Works Award winners confirm that leading employers are continuing the movement toward effective workplace strategies that benefit both business and employees," said Lisa Horn, director of SHRM's workplace flexibility initiative. "These innovative strategies are what sets these organizations apart, allowing them to attract and retain top talent, giving them a competitive advantage."
