The Perry Center is honored to have been selected as a winner of the 2013 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 across the country. 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. This was the only Sloan Award for workplace flexibility issued to the federal government.
“As a recipient of the 2013 Sloan Award, the Perry Center ranks among the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace,” Ellen Galinsky, FWI President, 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.”
