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.
