Outdoor Outreach has been nationally recognized as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Commuters for offering their employees exceptional commuter benefits that meet the National Standard of Excellence criteria established by the Best Workplaces for Commuters organization. They are among a select group of workplaces in the United States that have committed to employee-provided commuter benefits that result in at least 14 percent of their employee base not driving alone to work within a 12-month period.

“Outdoor Outreach is one of the top employers in the nation offering high level commuter benefits to their employees,” said Julie Bond, Program Manager, Best Workplaces for Commuters. “Outdoor Outreach made the list because they offer transportation choices that include telework and access to Emergency Ride Home programs. Outdoor Outreach gives its employees the support they need to get to and from work and be at their best before, during, and after their work day.”

Outdoor Outreach offers employees several commuter benefit options, including:

  • Teleworking program, which reduced at least 6 percent of all employee commute trips
  • Carpooling
  • Emergency Ride Home program

“We take immense pride in receiving our 2019 Best Workplaces for Commuters national designation,” said Kaylie Erickson, Marketing & Events Senior Coordinator, Outdoor Outreach.

“Our commuter benefit programs reflect our commitment to our people and have helped us recruit top talent, experience lower turnover, and foster a highly collaborative environment. Financially, we have reduced overhead costs and reduced payroll tax contributions. I have found that the Best Workplaces for Commuters program is good for our company and good for our people.”
