WHIPPANY, N.J., Nov. 17 -- Solix Inc. has been selected, for the third year in a row, as a winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility. This 2009 award distinguishes Solix Inc. as one of the top practitioners of workplace flexibility in the nation.

Applications for the Alfred P. Sloan Awards were open to businesses with more than ten employees that had been in business for at least one year. Applicants were evaluated in a rigorous two-step process, first comparing the employer's application to nationally representative data from Families and Work Institute's National Study of Employers, and then validating the employer's report against employee survey responses. Solix offers flexibility programs, policies, and practices that are above the national average from this study. Not only are its flexibility programs, policies, and practices available, but the Company has received confirmation that they are carried out effectively in the organization.

"Since this award is ultimately the result of responses of polled employees, I am heartened and encouraged to know that Solix' employees continue to believe that we are doing the right things to help them balance work and home life," said John Parry, Solix President & CEO. "Solix employees have my pledge that we will continue to try to find ways to continue to improve."

The Morris County Chamber of Commerce recognized Solix as a winner of the 2009 Alfred P. Sloan Award at the Economic Outlook Luncheon, October 30, 2009 at The Westin in Morristown, NJ. In addition, all award winners across the country will be recognized in a national advertisement later this year in USA Today.
