Workplace Awards

About the Award

The 2018 When Work Works Award process is complete and winners have been announced by SHRM! The 97 winning worksites in 35 states and the District of Columbia provide insight into the best practices of effective workplaces and related emerging trends.

The prestigious When Work Works Award — part of the SHRM’s When Work Works project — recognizes employers that excel at offering a variety of employee initiatives such as work-life fit policies, flexible scheduling and transition to parenthood programs. The award is earned after a rigorous assessment that emphasizes the real-life experiences of employees and incorporates national benchmarks of employer practices from the National Study of Employers and the National Study of the Changing Workforce. Two-thirds of an organization’s winning score is based on a survey of its employees.
