PP&A Honored for Workplace Flexibility

Press Release

September 10, 2013

Salt Lake City — Prince, Perelson & Associates has received the 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility for its use of flexibility and other aspects of workplace effectiveness as a workplace strategy to increase business and employee success.

The award, part of the national When Work Works project administered by Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), recognizes employers of all sizes and types in Utah and across the country.

“We are delighted to receive this recognition for our workplace practices,” said Jill Perelson, CEO of Prince, Perelson & Associates. “Creating a healthy work life balance is a key contributor to our success in acquiring and retaining top talent.”

Workplace flexibility — such as flextime, part-time work and compressed workweeks — has been demonstrated to help businesses remain competitive while also benefiting employees.

“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 include a 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.

 “As a recipient of the 2013 Sloan Award, Prince, Perelson & Associates ranks among the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace,” Galinsky said.

When Work Works is a national project to educate the business community on the value of workplace flexibility. It is an ongoing initiative of FWI and SHRM.
