We are so pleased to announce that SeKON has been awarded a spot on the 2018 Best Workplaces for Commuters list! Below is an overview of the program and the qualifications that needed to be met in order to make the list:

Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) is an innovative membership program that provides qualified employers with national recognition and an elite designation for offering outstanding commuter benefits, such as free or low cost bus passes and vanpool fares and strong telework programs. Employers that meet the National Standard of Excellence in commuter benefits—a standard created by the National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—can get on the list of Best Workplaces for Commuters and receive high level programs and services.  

Best Workplaces for Commuters is dramatically improving the way people get to and from work. BWC assists participating employers by offering public recognition and promotion, technical assistance, training, Web-based tools, and forums for information exchange.

To determine levels of eligibility for participating in the program, employers complete the BWC application. As part of the application, employers agree to several items, including ensuring a minimum level of employee participation, designating a central point of contact for employee questions, providing an Emergency Ride Home for participating employees, and offering a choice of Commuter Benefits.

SeKON is #682 on 2017 Inc. 5000 List

It is a great honor to announce that SeKON has made the Inc. 5000 list for the 2nd year in a row!

As you may know, every year Inc. recognizes the fastest growing private companies in America. This year, the winners have, once again, placed the bar very high. Companies that made the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2013. Over a stretch when the economy grew just 6.7%, that is a result most businesses could only dream of. Needless to say, the list gets harder every year as our starting base grows. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere 1 in 3 have made the list 2 times! This is truly an extraordinary accomplishment! This year, SeKON has earned the position of 682 on the 2017 Inc. 5000 list!
