KLR Newsroom Alfred P. Sloan Award - KLR wins award for workplace effectiveness and flexibility September 22, 2014 Alfred P. Sloan Award - KLR wins award for workplace effectiveness and flexibility For the third year in a row, KLR has been honored with the 2014 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility for its use of flexibility as an effective workplace strategy to increase business and employee success. This prestigious award, part of the national When Work Works project administered by the Families and Work Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management, recognizes employers of all sizes and types in New England and across the country. Workplace flexibility — such as flextime, part-time work and compressed workweeks — has been demonstrated to help businesses remain competitive while also benefiting employees. 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. All applicants are measured against national norms from the National Study of Employers.
