Emory University has earned the WorldatWork Work-Life 2016 Seal of Distinction, for demonstrating leadership in workplace strategies that help employees with personal work-life balance.
The 2016 Seal of Distinction is awarded every year to companies across North America that support employees at work and at home. The overall strength of a company’s work-life portfolio is evaluated along with work-life programs, policies and practices reflected in:
• Caring for dependents
• Health and wellness
• Financial support and education
• Paid and unpaid time off
• Community involvement
• Workforce experience and engagement.
Emory University recognizes that a positive work experience is essential to employee engagement and organizational success,” said Anne Ruddy, CCP, WorldatWork president and CEO. “This year's Work-Life Seal of Distinction honorees are an impressive group of employers that clearly understand the business value of investing in the people who do the work.”
The award is designed to identify organizations leading the change in today's workplace by creating and implementing successful work-life programs and policies. This year, the prestigious business award shines the spotlight on 116 employers honoring their approach to employee engagement and their commitment to the well-being of their workforce.
All 2016 Seal of Distinction companies will be formally recognized at a gala awards dinner on March 9, during the WorldatWork Future of Work Forum in New Orleans. To find out more about the WorldatWork Work-Life Seal of Distinction, go to www.worldatwork.org/sealofdistinction.
