Mediaura has been honored with the 2014 When Work Works Award for its use of effective workplace strategies to increase business and employee success.
This prestigious award, part of a national project administered by the Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), recognizes employers of all sizes and types in the [region or state] and across the country.
“We are a company comprised of team members who always go the extra mile for our clients,” said Andrew Aebersold, President/CEO of Mediaura “This is why we recognize the need to go the extra mile as a company for our team’s well-being too.”
The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Worksites must first qualify in the top 20% of the country based on a nationally representative sample of employers. Two-thirds of the evaluation of applicants comes from an employee survey. Applicants are evaluated on six research-based ingredients of an effective workplace: opportunities for learning; a culture of trust; work-life fit; supervisor support for work success; autonomy; and satisfaction with earnings, benefits, and opportunities for advancement — all factors associated with employee health, well-being, and engagement.
“These employers . . . in innovative and inspiring ways . . . set an example for employers both nationally and internationally,” said Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute.
“The WWW Award recognizes organizations that foster a culture of workplace flexibility and effectiveness, which gives them a competitive advantage. Their practices set them apart from other organizations,” said Lisa Horn, director of SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative.
WWW is a national project that shares research results on what makes an effective and flexible workplace with the business community.
