Cambridge Systematics was designated one of the Best Workplaces for CommutersSM by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for the second year in a row.
Best Workplaces for CommutersSM is a national membership program that recognizes qualified employers for providing environmentally friendly commuter benefits to their employees. Cambridge Systematics remains committed to providing resources to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to improve our environment.
Cambridge Systematics’ office locations are situated in pedestrian-friendly communities and areas easily accessible to public transportation. This plays a major role in providing employees with alternative modes of transportation along with environmentally friendly and cost-effective commuting strategies. As part of the firm’s benefits program, Cambridge Systematics offers commuting options and services including subsidized transit fares, secure bicycle parking and on-site amenities at many locations, along with flexible work schedules and VPN access from home.
“The firm gets involved in environmentally friendly commuting initiatives whenever possible,” said Andrew Witty, Director of Human Resources. “For example, all our office locations participated in a Bike to Work Week competition in May and a Walking competition this fall. We take our responsibility to our employees and to the environment seriously and will continue to encourage staff to participate in these programs that benefit themselves and their communities.”
Best Workplaces for CommutersSM is a public-private partnership developed by the U.S. EPA and the U.S. DOT. Employers participating in the program not only provide commuter benefits to more than 1.4 million employees in the United States, they help ease traffic congestion, air pollution as well as save on fuel consumption.
