CHICAGO — July 14, 2010 — Perspectives Ltd has received a 2010 Alfred P. Sloan Award Honorable Mention for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility. It’s the employee assistance program (EAP) company’s fourth consecutive year being honored.
“We help businesses create happy, safe and productive workplaces,” said Bernie Dyme, President and CEO of Perspectives. “Receiving Sloan Award recognition is a tremendous honor within itself, but it also validates the value of work/life and employee assistance programs like those that we deliver.”
He added: “Employee performance is essential to driving business results. Providing employees with a means for managing life and emotional issues effectively supports business profitability.”
The Sloan Awards honor organizations nationwide that use workplace flexibility as a strategy to increase workplace effectiveness and yield positive business results. As an honoree, Perspectives Ltd ranks in the top 20% — the 80th percentile — of employers nationally in terms of flexible work programs, policies and culture. As the result of its practices, Perspectives has experienced less than a 5% employee turnover in the past year.
The Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility are part of When Work Works, a national project on workplace flexibility and workplace effectiveness from Families and Work Institute in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for a Competitive Workforce and the Twiga Foundation.
