Award recognizes employers nationwide that offer exceptional commuter benefits
Afet Dundar, Research Center’s Director of Research
The National Student Clearinghouse has been named one of the 2017 Best Workplaces for Commuters nationwide. The award program is managed by the Center for Urban Transportation Research and recognizes U.S.-based companies that provide benefits resulting in at least 14 percent of their employees no longer driving alone to and from work within a 12-month period.
To earn the national designation, workplaces must meet the National Standard of Excellence criteria, which includes offering commuter-support programs such as subsidized transit or vanpool passes, compressed workweek schedules, secured bicycle parking and an Emergency Ride Home program.
“We are pleased to be recognized as an employer who offers alternative work arrangements to our staff,” said Bridget Sedlock, managing director of corporate services at the Clearinghouse. “These offerings improve our employee experience and benefit our local community through our commitment to sustainable practices.”
The Clearinghouse is one of only 231 companies designated as 2017 Best Workplaces for Commuters. View the complete list here.
“The 231 companies designated as the 2017 Best Workplaces for Commuters are part of a national movement,” said Julie Bond, program manager for Best Workplaces for Commuters, in an official statement. “Companies are recognizing that it makes good business sense to provide commuter benefits, such as subsidizing bus fares, designating parking for carpoolers or allowing employees to work from home.”
The Clearinghouse was previously recognized in 2015 as one of the “Fairfax First 50” Best Workplaces for Commuters.
