CLEVELAND -- — In recognition of its efforts to create a healthy, high-performing work environment, Grants Plus will receive the American Psychological Association’s 2016 Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 27.

Grants Plus is a full-service grant seeking firm. The company won in the small for-profit category,

“Employees notice when an organization legitimately cares about their well-being and are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs, committed to the organization and motivated to do their best,” says David W. Ballard, PsyD, MBA, head of APA’s Center for Organizational Excellence. “Organizations like Grants Plus recognize the importance of creating a work environment where employees and the organization can thrive.”

The business’ staff-determined schedules, regular small-group meetings, professional training, ongoing communication via company social media and paid time off are several examples of the workplace practices that helped it earn a 2016 award.

Grants Plus employees work flexible schedules with the choice to work from home or from the company’s office at the Hanna Building in Playhouse Square.

The company says those practices support employees to more effectively juggle work and personal demands so they can achieve higher personal satisfaction and job productivity.
