Houston - Pannell Kerr Forster of Texas, P.C. (PKF Texas) has been honored with the 2014 When Work Works Award (formerly the Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility) for its use of effective workplace strategies to increase business and employee success.

This prestigious award, part of the national When Work Works project administered by the Families and Work Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management, recognizes employers of all sizes and types in Texas and across the country.

 "We are pleased to receive this recognition for our workplace practices for the eighth consecutive year," said Kenneth Guidry, CPA, President. "We evaluate our benefits, policies and procedures each year to ensure our team members are able to successfully balance their professional and personal responsibilities. Independent recognition, such as this award, showcases why our team members think PKF Texas is a great place to work."

The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Worksites must first qualify in the top 20% of the country based on a nationally representative sample of employers. Two-thirds of the evaluation of applicants comes from an employee survey. Applicants are evaluated on six research-based ingredients of an effective workplace: 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.
