Central Consulting Group Recognized for Exemplary Workplace Practices 2nd Year in Row Receives Alfred P. Sloan Awards For Excellence In Workplace Eﬀectiveness And Flexibility For 2013
Minneapolis, MN — August 15, 2013 — Central Consulting Group (CCG) has been honored with the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility for 2013. This is the second year that CCG has won this award of distinction, which is sponsored by When Work Works National Partners, Families and Work Institute (FWI) and The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
The selection process is quite rigorous, involving an evaluation of employers’ programs and practices, and a confidential employee survey. As a winner, CCG ranks in the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace.
“Once again, we’re thankful to be recognized with this prestigious award,” said CCG’s Managing Partner John Nelson. It validates the continued philosophy we’ve had since the company was founded in 2000, and we realize that employees perform their best and are most satisfied when they have control over their work schedules and environment. “As we have always allowed our employees to work remotely and determine their own schedules, we know this has a big impact on employee satisfaction which results in lower turnover rates,” he said.
Another reason CCG chose to offer a flexible workplace environment was to aid in recruiting high level consultants who are passionate about helping clients maximize their software investment. “Our consultants bring real-life experience to the table, with backgrounds in accounting, data migration, strategic integration and IT. When we find a good consultant, we don’t want geography to be a barrier. Plus, most of our consultants travel to client locations across the country so their main office becomes irrelevant,” Nelson explained.
