When Work Works (WWW) is a national initiative, led by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), to help businesses of all sizes and types become more successful by transforming the way they view and adopt effective and flexible workplaces. When Work Works is one of the foremost providers of resources, rigorous research and best practices on workplace effectiveness and flexibility in the nation.
Practices such as telecommuting, flextime, part-time work, job sharing, transition to retirement, and compressed schedules help employees meet their work and life responsibilities and help employers respond to the competitive global marketplace. Effective and flexible workplace strategies boost productivity, increase employee morale, lower turnover and absenteeism, and lower overhead costs.
When Work Works partners with communities and states around the country to:
The Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce is honored to be a When Work Works Community Partner. As the major outreach arm of the initiative, Community Partners connect community leaders from business, media and government to create change and make the community case for effective and flexible workplaces.
The WWW Award program is national in scope, and recognizes model employers of all types and sizes across the U.S. for their innovative and effective workplace practices. It is a worksite-based award honoring organizations that are using workflex as a strategy to make work work better—for both the employer and the employee.
Employers benefit by merely applying for the WWW Award as all applicants receive a free customized bench-marking report comparing their effective and flexible workplace practices to a nationally representative sample of U.S. employers and to award winners.
Applications for the When Work Works Awards are typically accepted in the spring of each year. Once established, application information can be found here.
