Ceridian Wins Prestigious 'When Work Works' Award for Exemplary Workplace Practices

Ceridian Recognized for Innovative & Inspiring Programs to Promote Employee Health, Well-Being & Engagement

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 15, 2014) - Ceridian announces that its Minneapolis location 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 the national When Work Works 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 Minnesota and across the country.

"We are thrilled to receive this recognition for our workplace practices," says Sara Hill, chief human resources officer for Ceridian. "Our culture is one of spontaneous support. As such, we are committed to providing a variety of family-friendly benefits and flexible work options to our employees, both of which are major contributors to our engagement levels. We're dedicated to open, transparent, two-way communication with all of our employees - encouraging them to put forth creative ideas and feedback on ways to improve every aspect of our business, including the work-life balance options available."

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 are making work work in innovative and inspiring ways and set an example for employers both nationally and internationally," says Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute.

"The When Work Works 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," adds Lisa Horn, director of SHRM's Workplace Flexibility Initiative.
