Morrisville, NC (PRWEB) September 15, 2014
d-Wise, a global technology consultancy based in the US in the Research Triangle Park area of Raleigh, NC and in the UK in Manchester, UK has been honored with the 2014 When Work Works Award for its use of effective workplace strategies to increase business and employee success.
This prestigious award, part of the US 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 extremely excited and proud as an organization to receive this recognition for our workplace practices,” said John Leveille, CEO and founder of d-Wise. "Our staff regularly expresses appreciation for the trust placed in them by d-Wise. They can see that our company policies and practices respect them as hard-working human beings who are striving to do their best work every day."
The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Worksites 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 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.
“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.
“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.
