LANSING, Mich., April 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Peckham, Inc. was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best workplaces for flexibility in the United States. Peckham came in 13th on the list, thanks to our combination of flexible workplace policies and a culture that encourages people to make the most of them.
To create this list, Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work analyzed more than 500 companies of different sizes across a range of industries.
"We are extremely proud to be named one of the best workplaces for flexibility," said Scott Derthick, The People and Culture Guy. "More importantly, it reminds us of those conversations we must have with staff and clients to find out what they want, what they need, and how we can best help them be happy, satisfied and more successful in the workplace."
Peckham and the other winning companies were selected based on responses to the Trust Index, Great Place to Work's employee assessment survey, as well as an analysis of respondents' anonymous comments. Survey questions assessed co-workers' feelings on work-life balance, in addition to factors like communication, fairness and leadership that affect employees' ability to accommodate their personal lives without compromising their careers. Fortune and Great Place to Work also considered the range of flexible workplace programs offered at each organization and the frequency of their use.
"Peckham is built around a culture of respect, where differences are celebrated," said Mitch Tomlinson, President & CEO of Peckham. "Creating a flexible workplace and a commitment to putting people first has created an inclusive environment where people of all abilities can do great work, and take pride in it."
Peckham offers fair compensation, paid vacations, tuition reimbursements, 401(a) and other compensations programs for their employees. Peckham also offers a number of day-to-day perks which include, a dog friendly office, on-site gyms with wellness incentives, massages, loaner bicycles, garden plots, and MEe Goals (Mission Engagement Experiences) to help drive Peckham's mission of maximizing opportunities for persons with disabilities.
