Hacienda Business Park and The Best Workplaces for Commuters℠ team have great news for your company. Hacienda has nominated businesses within the park to be listed as one of the 2006 Bay Area Best Workplaces for Commuters℠ as your organization already qualifies for this national designation. Just like FORTUNE magazine’s list of Best Places to Work, the Best Workplaces for Commuters℠ list tells everyone your company is at the forefront of corporate best practices. 

Simple One-Step Registration
There are no fees to register and no costs to employers to be recognized on the list. All you need to do to make your participation official is to signal your interest by completing the online form at: www.hacienda.org/resources/resources_transportation_bwfc.html. Please complete the online form prior to August 31st. If your company was included on the 2005 list, your name will automatically be included this year and you do not need to reapply.

Distinguish Your Organization
Companies recognized as Best Workplaces for Commuters℠ are featured in media promotion locally and across the nation. An overview of recent national coast to coast media coverage is available at www.bwc.gov/media/index.htm, and prior Bay Area coverage is summarized online at www.bwc.gov/campaign/sanfran.htm. This page will also tell you which employers were recognized. Beyond media exposure, employers on the list also obtain the ability to brand themselves using the list’s distinctive logo as well as the opportunity to receive free access to training, commute alternative program assistance, web-based tools and networking.

Hacienda believes that commute alternatives are essential to meeting the needs of today’s workforce and has formed one of the finest programs available. This means that, simply by being a business located within Hacienda, your organization can automatically provide your employees the best in commute choices including: free use of transit, rideshare resources, an emergency ride home, and a comprehensive library of commute information.

Get Recognized for What You Already Do
Receive the distinction you deserve! Giving employees access to programs that provide commuting benefits demonstrates true leadership. Through the Best Workplaces for Commuters program, employers distinguish themselves as having met a national standard of excellence in the provision of commuting benefits. If you are interested in being recognized as such a leader, consider this important opportunity.
