TMC Library Receives Prestigious Award


The TMC Library is one of fourteen recipients of the prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility.

The TMC Library is dedicated to providing the finest collections and services in support of the research, education and patient care programs of the Texas Medical Center.

The vision of The TMC Library is to be recognized as a world-class leader in the delivery and development of biomedical information.

The TMC Library allows all staff to work flexible hours or work from home, if it does not affect productivity. “I think that our flexible work schedules have enabled the Library to retain valuable staff, lowering costs of recruitment and training.” states L. Maximilian Buja, MD, Executive Director.

The Alfred P. Sloan awards are part of When Work Works, a national project to educate the business community on the value of workplace effectiveness and flexibility. It is an ongoing initiative of Families and Work Institute (FWI) first funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. In 2011, the Society for Human Resource Management and FWI formed a ground-breaking, multi-year partnership to grow When Work Works and help businesses become more successful by transforming the way they view and adopt effective and flexible workplaces.
