AccountingDepartment.com Recognized for Innovative and Effective Workplace Practices

when-work-works-2018AccountingDepartment.com has been honored with a 2018 When Work Works Award for exemplary workplace practices. The prestigious When Work Works Award is part of the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM’s) When Work Works project, a national initiative that helps employers become more successful by transforming the way they view and adopt effective and flexible workplaces.

The award recognizes employers of all sizes across the country that are excelling at offering a variety of top-rated employee initiatives such as work-life fit policies, flexible scheduling and transition to parenthood programs. The award goes beyond work-life programs and includes initiatives that address the additional evidence-based aspects of effective workplaces, such as opportunities for learning, a culture of respect and trust, and job autonomy.

Lisa Archetti, AccountingDepartment.com HR Manager shared “We are honored to receive the recognition from SHRM for our workplace culture and practices.  From the inception of our company in 2004, our goal was to create an efficient and effective workforce that was also family-friendly.  We are committed to giving our employees an opportunity to have a career they love, but also the ability to pursue life interests outside of work - whatever they may be.  As a recipient of this prestigious award, it is a testament that we have achieved this goal.  Our culture of family first is deeply embedded and as a result, our employees are dedicated and motivated towards achieving our mission – and the success of our company naturally follows.”

In applying for the award, AccountingDepartment.com was evaluated on factors associated with employee health, well-being and engagement: 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. 

 “These organizations developed HR policies and programs to support and maintain this environment, and they are reaping the benefits with increased retention, productivity, and overall success for their investment,” said Lisa Horn, SHRM vice president, Congressional Affairs. 

The award is earned after a rigorous assessment that emphasizes the real-life experiences of employees and incorporates national benchmarks of employer practices from the National Study of Employers and the employee experiences from the National Study of the Changing Workforce. Two-thirds of an organization’s winning score is based on a survey of its employees.
