Blue Mountain Quality Resources has been honored with the 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility for its use of flexibility and other aspects of workplace effectiveness as a strategy to increase business and employee success.  As a recipient of the 2013 Sloan Award, Blue Mountain ranks among the top 20% of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace.

“This is a great honor.” said Jim Erickson, President of Blue Mountain Quality Resources. “It recognizes our ongoing efforts to create a employee-centric environment. I am especially thrilled because it truly reflects the thoughts and opinions of our employees.”

The Sloan Awards are unique for their rigorous, two-step selection process, which involves an evaluation of employers’ flexibility programs and practices, and a confidential employee survey on the key ingredients of an effective and flexible workplace. All applicants are measured against national norms from the National Study of Employers.

Workplace flexibility — such as flextime, part-time work and compressed workweeks — has been demonstrated to help businesses remain competitive while also benefiting employees. Flexibility in combination with other aspects of an effective workplace—such as learning opportunities and supervisor support for job success—can have a powerful impact on employee engagement and motivation.

Blue Mountain is committed to both professional and personal growth through training and community activities.  We focus on innovation through the sharing of ideas and opinions where all employees are contributors.  We proactively solicit feedback and suggestions and create cross-functional project teams to develop and implement ideas.  We search for those that embrace high expectations and have a great time doing it.
