Hancock Askew has been honored with the 2016 When Work Works Award (formerly known as the Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility), a research-based initiative led by the partnership of Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) that highlights how effective and flexible workplaces yield positive business results and help employees succeed at work and home.
This prestigious award, honors model employers of all types and sizes in Georgia and across the country for their innovative and effective workplace practices.
According to Managing Partner, Mike McCarthy, “Our employees are what make our firm successful. By providing flexible work options, we are able to recruit and retain the best and the brightest which benefits the employees, the firm and our clients.”
The When Work Works Awards are unique for their rigorous, two-step selection process, which involves an evaluation of employers’ flexibility programs and practices, and a confidential employee survey. All applicants are measured against national norms from the National Study of Employers.
“As a recipient of the 2016 When Work Works Award, Hancock Askew ranks among the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace,” said Ellen Galinsky, FWI president. “In addition, what makes this honor so special is that their employees have corroborated this, affirming that it is indeed an effective and flexible workplace.”
Hancock Askew was also honored with the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2016.
