Blue Gecko was named a winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility in 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010 distinguishing us as one of the top practitioners of workplace flexibility in the nation.
“Two of the biggest issues for employers in today’s economy are recruitment of top talent and retention of valued employees,” said Greg Roth, senior manager of programs for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for a Competitive Workforce.
“The business community sees workplace flexibility as a vital piece in a broader plan to develop the strongest possible workforce. As a strategy to stay competitive, workplace flexibility can be a sound business decision for employers no matter the size or industry sector.”
What is workplace flexibility?
Workplace flexibility is a way to define how and when work gets done and how careers are organized. In fact, employees in effective and flexible workplaces are more likely to:
- be engaged in their jobs and committed to helping their companies succeed;
- be satisfied with their jobs; and
- plan on staying with their employer.
