Brown & Brown of Detroit is honored for the third time

Brown & Brown of Detroit is honored for the third time...

as an Alfred P. Sloan winner for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility


This prestigious award recognizes employers of all sizes and types in the state of Michigan that are using workplace flexibility as a strategy to increase workplace effectiveness and yield positive business results.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition for our workplace practices,” said Gene LoVasco, profit center leader. “Our employees continue to serve our clients as well as the community in ways that use innovation and flexibility to drive quality and leadership in everything they do in every day life. I am so proud of them and all they do for the community.”

The Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility are part of the national When Work Works project, an ongoing initiative of Families and Work Institute, the Institute for a Competitive Workforce (an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce), and the Twiga Foundation. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation and the Detroit Regional Chamber are the official When Works partners for Michigan.

The selection process is rigorous. First, employers’ flexibility programs and practices are measured against national norms from Families and Work Institute’s National Study of Employers. Employees are then surveyed confidentially on their access to flexible work options, the supportiveness of the culture and on nationally tested measures of workplace effectiveness.

“As a recipient of the 2010 Sloan Award, Brown and Brown of Detroit ranks in the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and fl exible workplace,” states Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute. “In addition, what makes this honor so special is that employees have corroborated this, affirming that it is indeed an effective and flexible workplace.”
