Last week, SHRM announced the winners of the 2017 When Work Works Award. The winners provide insight into the practices of effective and flexible workplaces and emerging trends. Paid monthlong sabbaticals, child care subsidy programs and customized work schedules are some of the ways winners of the 2017 When Work Works Award exemplify model workplaces across the U.S. with innovative workplace practices. The winners are changing the norms of work and the workplace by restructuring how, when and where work gets done in ways that work for employees while also achieving and improving organizational success. There are 298 award winners from 44 states and the District of Columbia.
Here's a sampling of some of the winners' offerings:
The awards recognize organizations that have created effective workplaces based on seven evidence-based components that are linked with positive employee and employer outcomes, according to SHRM's Effective Workplace Index. Those components are autonomy; work/life fit; supervisor task support for job success; satisfaction with wages, benefits and opportunities to advance; job challenge and learning opportunities; and a culture of respect, trust and belonging.
The When Work Works Award is part of SHRM's When Work Works project, a national initiative to help employers of all sizes and types become more successful by transforming the way they view and adopt effective and flexible workplaces. When Work Works is one of the foremost providers of resources, rigorous research and best practices on workplace effectiveness and flexibility in the nation.
