Local companies honored with Sloan Awards.
"From new forms of flexible work arrangements that minimize lay-offs, to creative cost-cutting that retains core medical benefits, to providing financial information and support to employees, these employers are braving the economic storm through innovative policies that prevent undue shock to their workplaces and their employees," said Ellen Galinsky, president of the Families and Work Institute. "We are excited to recognize these exemplary employers in our business community," said Tammy Carnrike, chief operating officer, Detroit Regional Chamber. "Their ability to maintain progressive workplaces that allows flexibility for their employees is to be applauded particularly in the current economic environment we are facing in Michigan."
The Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility are part of the When Work Works project, an ongoing initiative of Families and Work Institute, the Institute for a Competitive Workforce and the Twiga Foundation. The Detroit Regional Chamber and Michigan Economic Development Corporation lead the local initiative.
