Receives Prestigious When Work Works Award

AUSTIN, TX – September 04, 2014 — / — Spanning Cloud Apps, the leading provider of data backup and recovery for cloud applications, today announced that it has been honored with the 2014 When Work Works Award 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 (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), recognizes employers of all sizes and types in Austin and across the country.

“At Spanning, we strive to create an environment that excites our employees to come to work each day and inspires them to deliver products that our customers love and trust to keep their cloud application data safe and their organizations productive,” said Jeff Erramouspe, president and CEO, Spanning. “We are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts in creating a collaborative and transparent corporate culture and are excited to continue our growth with the support of such a talented team.”

The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Worksites must first qualify in the top 20 percent 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 — all factors associated with employee health, well-being, and engagement.

“These employers are making work work in innovative and inspiring ways and set an example for employers both nationally and internationally,” said Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute.

“The When Work Works Award recognizes organizations that foster a culture of workplace flexibility and effectiveness, which gives them a competitive advantage. Their practices set them apart from other organizations,” said Lisa Horn, director of SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative.
