Effective Workplaces Recognized
Almost 300 U.S. workplaces with innovative and effective practices have been
named winners of the 2017 When Work
The awards, which are part of SHRM’s
When Work Works initiative, recognize
employers that offer top-rated employee
benefits such as work/life fit options, flexible scheduling and transition-to-parent-hood programs.
They also recognize organizations for
elements that are linked to greater employee
well-being, productivity, retention and posi-
tive business outcomes, including: auton-
omy; supervisor and co-worker support
for job success; satisfaction with earnings,
benefits and opportunities to advance;
opportunities for learning; and a culture of
trust, respect and belonging.
The 298 winning worksites represent
all sizes of organizations in 44 states and
the District of Columbia.
“These winners are changing the
norms of work and the workplace by
restructuring how, when and where work
gets done in ways that work for employees while also achieving and improving
organizational success,” said Cassidy
Solis, SHRM’s senior advisor for workplace flexibility.
