Boulder, CO (PRWEB) August 31, 2014
FlexJobs has been honored with the 2014 When Work Works Award for its use of effective workplace strategies for creating a work environment dedicated to both increasing business success as well as employee success. When Work Works is a national project that shares research results on what makes an effective and flexible workplace with the business community, and the awards recognize employers of all sizes and types in Colorado and across the country.
“We are grateful to have received a When Work Works award,” said Sara Sutton Fell, CEO and Founder of FlexJobs. “Since our start, FlexJobs has been dedicated both helping job seekers find jobs that offer work flexibility and a better work-life fit, as well as offering that to our own team.”
The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Companies must first qualify in the top 20% 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 a variety of research-based ingredients of an effective workplace -- such as job satisfaction, work-life fit, and a healthy corporate culture -- all of which are focused on employee health, well-being, and engagement.
“These employers are making work work in innovative and inspiring ways and set an example for employers both nationally and internationally,” said Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute.
As a company on the cutting edge of evolving workplaces, FlexJobs has an entirely distributed team working remotely from all over the country. The majority of the staff works with flexible hours. Despite being a completely virtual company, its company culture embraces a team environment of collaboration, communication, and productivity.
“The When Work Works Award recognizes organizations that foster a culture of workplace flexibility and effectiveness, which gives them a competitive advantage. Their practices set them apart from other organizations,” said Lisa Horn, director of SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative.
