GiftCard Partners has been honored with the 2014 When Work Works Award for its use of effective workplace strategies to increase business, employee success and work-life balance. 

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 the state of Massachusetts and across the country.


“We are thrilled to receive this recognition for our exemplary workplace practices,” said Edward Shulkin, co-CEO of GiftCard Partners. “The commonality within GiftCard Partners is the shared vision of developing and maintaining a work-life balance. Employees are given the flexibility to create a schedule that works for them, the company, and in many cases, their families and still enable them to be active participants in team projects focused on individual and company goals,” states fellow co-CEO, Deborah Merkin.

The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Worksites must first qualify in the top 20% 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.

“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,” - Lisa Horn, director of SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative.
