The Center for Community Career Education at UTC was named a winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility, distinguished as one of the top practitioners of workplace flexibility in the nation. Four local businesses received this national recognition for their business practices at the award ceremony hosted by the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility are part of the When Work Works project, an ongoing initiative of Families and Work Institute, the Institute for a Competitive Workforce (ICW), an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Twiga Foundation to recognize businesses that are dedicated to making work “work” for the employer and the employees.
Through When Work Works, these partner organizations provide research, resources and recognition to businesses nationwide, and share the results of the research on creating effective and flexible workplaces that meet the needs of the 21st century.
“Within the UTC community, caring extends to both employees and their families. We encourage fulfilling careers on campus and a healthy balance with family life, and we are pleased to accept this award,” said Chancellor Roger Brown.
