Hubbard Radio Washington properties WTOP(FM) and Federal News Radio WFED(AM) have received the 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility for the use of flexibility and other aspects of workplace effectiveness as a workplace strategy to increase business and employee success.
The award is part of the national When Work Works project administered by Families and Work Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management and recognizes employers of all sizes and types across the country. When Work Works aims to educate the business community on the value of workplace flexibility by sharing research and promising practices.
The Sloan Awards’ two-step selection process involves an evaluation of employers’ flexibility programs and practices and a confidential employee survey on the key ingredients of an effective and flexible workplace, a release explained. All applicants are measured against national norms from the National Study of Employers.
“As a recipient of the 2013 Sloan Award, Hubbard Radio, D.C. ranks among the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace,” FWI President Ellen Galinsky said.
