GMTMA to Celebrate Local “Smart Workplaces”

19 Oct

On Friday, GMTMA will be recognizing 18 local companies as 2012 New Jersey Smart Workplaces at an awards ceremony at GMTMA’s Annual Luncheon at the Nassau Inn at 11:00 a.m.

The New Jersey Smart Workplaces (NJSW) program is a prestigious recognition earned by employers for offering outstanding commuter services to their employees. The free awards program is a partnership of the North Jersey Transportation Planning Association and GMTMA.

The 18 Smart Workplaces receiving awards this year are helping to improve our region’s quality of life, traffic, air quality, and public health by offering their employees a wide variety of commuting options. Examples of qualifying activities include:

  • Regularly promoting commute options to staff
  • Hosting on-site commuter events
  • Providing transit schedules
  • Forming carpools or vanpools
  • Offering teleworking
  • Offering flextime
  • Providing bicycle racks
  • Offering a pre-tax transit program

Employers are awarded at one of four levels: bronze, silver, gold or platinum. Levels are based on the scope and number of transportation activities they offer to employees. The 2012 employers being recognized at Friday’s luncheon are:

  • Platinum:  Albridge, an affiliate of Pershing, LLC; Bank Of America; Educational Testing Services; Janssen; NJ DOT; NJM Insurance Group; Novo Nordisk Inc.; Princeton University; FHWA; Munich Re
  • Gold: A-1 Limousine; Bloomberg LP; NJ DEP; Greater Mercer TMA
  • Silver: Horizon BCBSNJ, Trenton Office; Princeton Healthcare System; Princeton Insurance;
