Area Agency on Aging Palm Beach/Treasure Coast, Inc. has been named as one of 298 worksites across 44 states and the District of Columbia that have been selected for this award.
From the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) press release dated May 18, 2017:
"The prestigious When Work Works Award — part of the SHRM’s When Work Works project — recognizes employers at worksites that are excelling at offering a variety of top-rated employee initiatives such as work-life fit policies, flexible scheduling and transition to parenthood programs.
The award goes beyond work-life programs and includes initiatives that address additional evidence-based aspects of effective workplaces: autonomy; supervisor support for job success; co-worker support for job success; satisfaction with earnings, benefits and opportunities to advance; opportunities for learning; and a culture of trust, respect and belonging.
Among the almost 300 award winners are 100-percent-virtual workplaces, worksites that have holistic and family-first approaches to work, employers that trust employees to manage when and how they do their work, organizations with top leaders who set positive examples, and supervisors that support job success."
