“At Caliper, our primary mission is to help clients engage their employees by placing them in a role and an environment that they love,” said Dr. Herb Greenberg, PhD, founder and CEO of Caliper. “This honor is proof we’re not only recommending approaches to enhance workplace effectiveness and employee satisfaction, but living it. I’m proud to be recognized for an award I very much believe in, and even prouder knowing my own team is feeling the positive effects of a flexible, trusting work space.”
Workplace flexibility — such as flextime, part-time work and compressed workweeks — has been demonstrated to help businesses remain competitive, while also benefiting employees. In fact, when coupled with other aspects of an effective workplace – including learning opportunities and leadership development programs – adaptable schedules can have a powerful impact on employee success.
“Our research consistently finds that employees in effective and flexible workplaces have greater engagement on the job and greater desire to stay with their organization. In addition, they report lower stress levels and better overall health,” said Ellen Galinsky, FWI president.
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 on the key ingredients of an effective and flexible workplace. All applicants are measured against national norms from the National Study of Employers.
