KLR Newsroom KLR Honored for Exemplary Workplace Practices June 28, 2017 KLR Receives Prestigious When Work Works Award – 5 Straight Years! KLR Receives Prestigious When Work Works Award – 6 Straight Years! KLR has been honored with a 2017 When Work Works Award for its use of effective workplace strategies to increase business and employee success. We are pleased to accept this award for the 6th straight year. 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. “We are thrilled to receive this amazing honor and recognition for our workplace practices,” said Alan Litwin, Managing Director. “And what makes this honor especially rewarding is that the results were supported by our employees”. 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. About When Work Works: When Work Works is a national initiative, led by the partnership of the Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), to help businesses of all sizes and types become more successful by transforming the way they view and adopt effective and flexible workplaces. When Work Works is one of the foremost providers of resources, rigorous research and best practices on workplace effectiveness and flexibility in the nation. The initiative administers the prestigious annual When Work Works Award, which recognizes exemplary employers for creating effective workplaces to increase business and employee success.
