Oxford HealthCare has received the 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility. Receiving this national honor ranks Oxford among the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace. Khai’s story is just one example of Oxford’s approach.
“I am a single mother with a young daughter, and because of Oxford’s flexibility, I am so proud to say I am on my last three semesters of nursing school. Being an RN has been my life-long dream, and I can honestly say, I would never have been able to achieve it without Oxford. Between caring for my daughter, and the demands of school, I have had to change my schedule sometimes every month so that I can juggle it all . . . with Oxford, I never have to worry. I can get exactly the number of hours I need, at the times I need them, anytime day or night. Oxford has allowed me to do it all.”
“We are honored to receive this prestigious national recognition for our innovative workplace practices,” said Karen Thomas, president of Oxford HealthCare. “Our employees are very important to us. Allowing them great flexibility to balance lives at work and home while caring for others has been one of our hallmark practices for years. Our workplace is unique in the fact that the majority of our employees can create their own schedule and literally choose the hours, days and times they want to work every week.”
