Alfred P. Sloan Award reflection of Christopherson Workplace Effectiveness

By October 14, 2009 No Comments

The Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce held an awards luncheon and training session today for the Alfred P. Sloan award and included speakers such as Patricia Kempthorne of the Families and Work Institute.

Patricia shared the results of extensive research done by the foundation to determine the aspects of the most effective work place.  The list included the following:

  1. Climate of Respect
  2. Supervisor Task Support
  3. Job Challenge and Learning
  4. Autonomy
  5. Economic Security
  6. Work-Life Fit

Since Mike and Camille Cameron took ownership of Christopherson in 1990 the company has maintained an employee turn over rate of less than 5%; and in an industry known for high employee turnover.

The Cameron’s have intuitively developed a work environment that incorporates the aspects listed above and created a truly “great place to work”.
