UC Davis Health has been recognized nationally for its commuter options, earning listing as a 2022 Best Workplace for Commuters.
On Thursday, Jan. 27, UC Davis Health was named as one of about 450 employers across the country to earn the Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) designation for 2022.
By providing exceptional commuter benefits, UC Davis Health has met a National Standard of Excellence established by Best Workplaces for Commuters, the national authority on recognizing and assisting workplaces that provide exceptional commuter benefits to employees.
“Being designated a Best Workplace for Commuters is a notable accomplishment,” said Julie Bond, program manager for Best Workplaces for Commuters. “To qualify, an employer must demonstrate its commitment to its employees by providing progressive commuter programs, like telework, discounted transit passes, bicycle-friendly amenities and rideshare solutions.”
In addition to the environmental benefits and cost savings, Bond noted, empowering employees to commute smarter also helps employers recruit and retain talent.
“We’re thrilled to be awarded the designation of Best Workplaces for Commuters for a third year in a row – it showcases another reason UC Davis Health is one of the best places to work in the region,” said Sarah Janus, sustainability officer for Parking and Transportation Services.
Janus urged UC Davis Health community members to consider signing up for the Green Commuter Program, which offers a variety of benefits that encourage less environmentally impactful commutes by carpool/vanpool, public transit, bicycle or other means.
