EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Architecture Technology Corporation (ATCorp) has been notified that it is a recipient of the 2016 When Work Works Award for its use of effective workplace strategies to increase business and employee success.
This prestigious award is part of the national When Work Works project administered by the Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). This award recognizes employers of all sizes and types both in the state of Minnesota and nationally.
"We are honored to be recognized by the Society of Human Resources and the Families and Work Institute as one of 351 workplaces who won the award across 43 states and the District of Columbia. We are proud to be noted for our exemplary workplace practices and proud to be recognized again, having received this prestigious award previously," said Megan Lee, Director of Human Resources of ATCorp.
The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Worksites must first qualify in the top 20% of the country based on a nationally representative sample of employers. Two-thirds of the evaluation of applicants comes from an employee survey. Applicants are evaluated on six research-based ingredients of an effective workplace: opportunities for learning; a culture of trust; work-life fit; supervisor support for work success; autonomy; and satisfaction with earnings, benefits and opportunities for advancement — all factors associated with employee health, well-being, and engagement.
"These employers have excelled at creating effective workplaces yielding tremendously positive results for business success, as well as for their employees' well-being and productivity," said Ellen Galinsky, president of FWI.
Lisa Horn, director of SHRM's workplace flexibility initiative, said "These innovative strategies are what sets these organizations apart, allowing them to attract and retain top talent, giving them a competitive advantage."
This is the fourth time that ATCorp has been awarded the When Work Works Award having also won in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
