One week left to apply for the 2014 Sloan Award -- deadline is Friday April 11th

  "It is time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a 'Mad Men' episode." - President Obama, 2014 State of the Union Address

Every day, organizations around Oregon are already changing what it means to be a great employer and breaking the outdated "Company Man" model.  That's why we are bringing the Sloan Awards for Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility to Oregon again in 2014.  And you should apply!  

Just click here to learn more and get started -- the deadline is Friday April 11th.

  Why should you apply?   Past recipients of the Sloan Award have been featured in major news media for their programs, invited to speak at national conferences and events about their best practices and even invited as a guest of the First Lady to the State of the Union.   

Just applying guarantees that you'll learn about your work-flex policies (even if you don't win!), because every applicant gets both:

  • A free benchmarking report comparing your organization with other employers, and
  • Feedback from your own employees about your workplace culture.

When you apply for this award, you are also joining a community of people in Oregon who care about creating  family-friendly, flexible work environments that help employees and employers thrive. 

Who can apply?

Any employer with 10 or more employees can apply, including businesses, non-profits, government agencies, schools and universities.  Applicants and winners from previous years are encouraged to apply again!

How to apply:

Employers simply complete an online survey about their workplace in two stages – the 1st for employers and the 2nd for employees.The deadline for round 1 (the online employer survey) is Friday, April 11th.
