GSC-SHRM joins the Morris County Chamber of Commerce serving as a 2013 Community Partner in the When Work Works program
The Garden State Council-SHRM is proud to join the Morris County Chamber of Commerce serving as a 2013 Community Partner in the When Work Works program. Since 2002 the Chamber has been the New Jersey forerunner for this national initiative led by the partnership of Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). When Work Works is one of the foremost providers of resources, research and best practices on workplace effectiveness and flexibility in the nation.
The Chamber and State Council are part of a group of 20 community partners in cities and states across the country. They engage community leaders in workplace flexibility efforts and educate employers about workplace flexibility practices such as job sharing, flexible work schedules, career flexibility, part-time work and other workflex programs and policies.
The initiative administers the annual Sloan Awards for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility, a prestigious awards program that recognizes exemplary employers for using flexibility as an effective workplace strategy to increase business and employee success.
As a Community Partners in New Jersey we want to recognize local employers, non-profits and other organizations for their innovative workplace practices. Share the story of your organization’s success and take advantage of this opportunity to showcase your organization’s flexible work environment and learn how your worksite stacks up against other employers.

All other counties should denote their Partner as Garden State Council-SHRM. The 2013 application period is open from January 14 through May 10.
All New Jersey Recipients of the Sloan Awards will be recognized at the Garden State Council’s annual conference. Each of the 11 SHRM affiliate chapters will recognize their local Recipients at their regularly scheduled September meeting. The Morris County Chamber of Commerce will collaborate with the Morris County-SHRM chapter recognizing Morris County Recipients at the Chamber’s Annual Economic Outlook event each October.
