MorganFranklin Corporation, a services and solutions provider to business and government leaders on complex and high-stakes financial, operational and IT issues, was named a winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility today, distinguishing the employer as one of the top practitioners of workplace flexibility in the nation.
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 (ICW), an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Twiga Foundation to recognize businesses that are dedicated to making work “work” for the employer and the employees.
Representing a diverse range of employer size and industry, winners of this prestigious award not only offer excellent workplace flexibility policies and practices, but they also use flexibility as a strategic business tool to benefit business and employees.
“At MorganFranklin Corporation, flexibility is essential for our team members as it empowers them to lead quality lives,” said Robert Morgan, MorganFranklin CEO. “Flexibility is also essential to produce the quality solutions we provide for our clients. To perform well, we know our team members must live well. A work/life balance is essential to retain the high-caliber professionals that make the MorganFranklin team work.”
“This award is one of the most rigorous in the country,” said Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute. “When comparing the winners to national data, they score in the top 20 percent of all employers in the U.S. – which is phenomenal,” she said. “To have employers’ data corroborated by their employees is what is most exciting. These businesses understand that workplace effectiveness and flexibility are part of being an employer of choice today. They are truly models for other companies.”
