Downers Grove, IL, April 13, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Great Place to Work® Institute and Fortune® magazine have recognized Sevan Multi-Site Solutions (Sevan), a leader in delivering innovative design, program management and construction services to brands with multiple sites, as one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Flexibility, ranking the company number 37.
“Thanks to the integrity of our employees, Sevan is able to successfully serve some of the world’s most-recognized brands while offering nearly 70% of our people the flexibility to work from their homes,” says Jim Evans, President. “We’re proud of the flexible workplace policies we’ve put in place and our culture that encourages people to make the most of them.”
Fortune asked Great Place to Work to judge Sevan and the more than 500 other organizations, examining factors like availability of telecommuting, flex-time, compressed work weeks, job sharing and phased retirement programs. Companies were evaluated based on responses to Great Place to Work’s “Trust Index” employee assessment surveys, as well as an analysis of respondents’ anonymous comments. The surveys asked employees about Sevan’s approach to work-life balance, as well as the ways that Sevan empowers employees to thrive in their personal lives without compromising their careers. Factors included communication, fairness and leadership.
“Creating career flexibility isn’t as simple as giving people time off or the chance to adjust their schedules to meet demands at home,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. “These companies have made a real investment in credible, trusting cultures that help employees achieve their goals both inside and outside the workplace.”
“As a Veteran Owned Small Business, we’re especially proud to support our team members who contribute to veteran causes,” adds Jim Evans. “For example, we’ve paid travel expenses so employees could run the in the Army Ten Miler that raises funds for The Fisher House Foundation. We also support employees in a number of their charitable endeavors, including raising money for the 'K9s for Warriors' telethon, as well as volunteering at Ronald McDonald House events.”
