Valassis, a media and marketing services company, has been recognized five times in 2010 with the prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility.

The award recognizes employers of all sizes and types across the country that are using flexibility as a strategy to increase workplace effectiveness and yield positive business results. Valassis ranks in the top 20 percent of employers nationally in terms of its programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace.

"Being considered a great place to work by our employees is important to us and this recognition draws attention to the programs we have in place and is a reflection of the great people who work here," says Todd Wiseley, general counsel and senior vice president of Administration at Valassis. "We take pride in the 15 awards in 2010 recognizing Valassis for our workplace flexibility, culture, growth and technology."

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

Davinci Virtual Office Solutions congratulates Valassis. This company is on the leading edge of flexible work, which many times includes virtual office space. Virtual office technologies enables options like telecommuting. But it all starts with the company culture.

Whether you are launching a full-fledged alternative workplace strategy or just looking for a back up during stormy weather, Davinci Virtual Office Solutions has the virtual assistants, virtual receptionists, virtual office technologies—and, of course, virtual office space, to get you up and running in a hurry.
