Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility Receives prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and FlexibilityKLR has been honored with the 2012 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. “We are thrilled to receive this recognition for our workplace practices,” said Alan Litwin, Managing Director of KLR. “KLR works very hard to meet the needs of our employees while providing outstanding service to our clients.”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.“As a recipient of the 2012 Sloan Award, KLR ranks in the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace,” Galinsky 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.”When Work Works is a national project to educate the business community on the value of workplace flexibility by sharing research and promising practices, and conducting the annual Sloan Awards. It is an ongoing initiative of the Families and Work Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management. For more information about the When Work Works project and the Alfred P.
