OpenSky Recognized for Leading Workplace Practices

Receives Prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility

TOLLAND, CT--(Marketwired - August 14, 2013) -  OpenSky Corporation, an IT consulting firm with industry-leading expertise in Infrastructure; IT Risk Management and Security; Governance, Risk and Compliance; and Technical Business Consulting, today announced it has been honored with the 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility.

The Sloan Awards are part of When Work Works, a research-based initiative to highlight how effective and flexible workplaces can yield positive business results and help employees succeed at work and at home. When Work Works is a joint partnership between Families and Work Institute (FWI) and The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). 

"The employers who win this award are the best and most innovative in the nation," says Ellen Galinsky, president of the Families and Work Institute. "They're reaping the benefits in the success of their companies as they compete in a 24/7 global marketplace."

"We are honored to receive this prestigious award," said Roger Levasseur, President and CEO OpenSky. "We believe that when employees are empowered and engaged, they are the driving force behind the success of a company. We are grateful to our employees for the exceptional IT problem-solving services that they provide and the award-winning growth and innovation that results."

"As a recipient of the 2013 Sloan Award, OpenSky ranks among the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace," said Galinsky. "In addition, what makes this honor so special is that their employees have corroborated this, affirming that it is indeed an effective and flexible workplace."

Workplace flexibility -- such as flextime, part-time work and compressed workweeks -- has been demonstrated to help businesses remain competitive while also benefiting employees. Flexibility in combination with other aspects of an effective workplace -- such as learning opportunities and supervisor support for job success -- can have a powerful impact on employee engagement and motivation.
