TransOptions, the Transportation Management Association for northwest New Jersey, recognized 58 companies as 2012 New Jersey Smart Workplaces during its Annual Employer Recognition Program on July 20, 2012 at County College of Morris in Randolph.
Employers qualified for this free, prestigious award at one of four levels, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, based upon the variety and scope of commuter programs that they offer. Activities ranged from providing transit schedules at the work site and hosting carpool and vanpool formation meetings to allowing employees to deduct commuting costs from their paychecks on a pre-tax basis, providing telecommuting and flextime programs, and offering on site amenities to reduce employees' travel requirements.
"Congratulations to these outstanding employers who are taking steps to improve the quality of life for their employees by offering commuter programs," commented John F. Ciaffone, TransOptions President.
