Macedon Recognized As Best Workplace for Commuters
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation partnering with Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) recognized seventeen Fairfax County employers who have excelled in implementing green commuter programs, including ride-sharing, transit benefits, biking and walking, teleworking, alternate work schedules and other strategies.
“Macedon is very proud to be among the nation’s Best Workplaces for Commuters for the first time. To qualify we had to submit a comprehensive application and demonstrate that we meet the BWC National Standard of Excellence,” said Shayla Thurlow, Director of Human Resources at Macedon.
“Being designated as one of the Best Workplaces for Commuters is more than just a title; it means an employer is standing behind its commitment to provide employees with access to progressive commuter programs, like discounted transit passes, bicycle-friendly amenities, and rideshare solutions,” said Julie Bond, Program Manager for Best Workplaces for Commuters.
Best Workplaces for Commuters is the national authority on recognizing and assisting workplaces that provide exceptional commuter benefits to employees. More than a recognition program, Best Workplaces for Commuters provides the necessary support needed to create and sustain an employer-provided commuter benefit program, including online assessment tools, advisory services, case studies, tool-kits, web-based tools, webinars, and training.
