HOUSTON, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Pannell Kerr Forster of Texas, P.C. (PKF Texas) was named a winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility, distinguishing PKF Texas as one of the leading practitioners of workplace flexibility in Houston and across the nation.
"We are honored to be a recipient of the Sloan Award for the fourth year in a row," said Kenneth Guidry, CPA, President. "Several years ago, we chose to adopt a 'people first' flexible workplace strategy to grow our business without overburdening our team or compromising client service. This strategy has proven to be beneficial as we make adjustments to our business in response to challenges posed by the economy."
Companies are evaluated in a rigorous two-step process. First, employers' flexibility programs and practices are measured against national norms from Families and Work Institute's National Study of Employers. Employees are then surveyed confidentially on their access to flexible work options, the supportiveness of the culture and on nationally tested measures of workplace effectiveness.
PKF Texas will be recognized at the Houston award luncheon on October 28, 2010. Houston is one of 30 cities nationwide chosen to participate.
