GVF has been named one of the Best Workplaces for Commuters in 2018 for offering exceptional employee- provided commuter benefits that meet the National Standard of Excellence criteria.
“GVF is on the cutting edge of a national movement,” said Julie Bond, Program Manager, Best Workplaces for Commuters. “They have listened to their employees’ challenges with traffic congestion and their concerns over reducing emissions. By offering a range of commuter benefits such as teleworking, carpooling programs and access to Emergency Ride Home programs, GVF gives its employees the support they need to get to and from work, so they can be at their best. These benefits are good for the company and its employees,” according to a press release.
“Being nationally recognized as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Commuters signals how serious we are about our employees and our environmental stewardship. Many of these programs are low to no cost and can have a dramatic impact on employee retention, morale, and productivity. Our job is making the commute better for all and it’s humbling to be recognized on a national scale for doing just that,” said Rob Henry, Executive Director of GVF.
The Best Workplaces for Commuters program offers designated organizations access to a range of support services to assess and promote non-driving commuting of employees, including organizational assessment and implementation tool-kits, web-based tools and webinars, staff training, and information exchange.
Founded in 1990, GVF is a not-for-profit organization created to advocate and promote a viable transportation network for the region’s economic vitality. To maximize awareness and develop sustainable support, we partner with public and private entities.
