Since 2005, the Sloan Awards have been recognizing model employers of all types and sizes across the U.S. for their innovative and effective workplace practices. The Sloan Awards are part of When Work Works, a research-based initiative to highlight how effective and flexible workplaces can yield positive business results and help employees succeed at work and at home. When Work Works is a joint partnership between Families and Work Institute (FWI) and The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
In 2008 Manchester was selected as one of 30 U.S. communities included in the When Work Works initiative, designed to share research and best practices on what makes work “work” in the 21st Century. Manchester had four Sloan Award winners in 2009.
In 2010, the project expanded statewide. Any New Hampshire employer with 10 or more employees is eligible to apply.
“Sloan Award winners have put into practice their bold ideas about how to make work work in the 21st century. They have shown they can support the needs of employees, while also making their organizations more effective and successful,” says Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute, a founding partner of When Work Works.
In addition to the recognition of earning a Sloan Award by FWI and SHRM in national media, When Work Works’ community partners recognize winners in their communities at individual, local awards events.
All applicants receive a free Benchmarking Report on Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility, based on their applications, comparing their responses to other award applicants, winners, and nationally representative samples of employers.
