EMPLOYER SOLUTIONS GROUP RECOGNIZED FOR EXEMPLARY WORKPLACE PRACTICES
Receives prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Award
Salt Lake City, UT (October 5, 2010) – Employer Solutions Group (ESG) announced today that it has been honored with the 2010 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility.
This prestigious award recognizes employers of all sizes and types in the greater Salt Lake City area and across the country that are using workplace flexibility as a strategy to increase workplace effectiveness and yield positive business results.
The Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility are part of the national When Work Works project, an ongoing initiative of Families and Work Institute, the Institute for a Competitive Workforce (an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce), and the Twiga Foundation. The Salt Lake Chamber is the official When Work Works partner for the Salt Lake City region.
The selection process is rigorous. First, employers’ flexibility programs and practices are measured against national norms from Families and Work Institute’s National Study of Employers. Employees are then surveyed confidentially on their access to flexible work options, the supportiveness of the culture and on nationally tested measures of workplace effectiveness.
“As a recipient of the 2010 Sloan Award, ESG ranks in the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace,” states Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute. “In addition, what makes this honor so special is that employees have corroborated this, affirming that it is indeed an effective and flexible workplace.”
ESG will be recognized by the Salt Lake Chamber at a luncheon on October 20, 2010.
