Foxhole Technology Receives “Best Workplace for Commuters” Award

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has recognized Foxhole Technology, Inc., along with 15 other employers, who have taken the initiative to become a Best Workplace for Commuters (BWC). By implementing BWC practices, Foxhole Technology is proud to be among Fairfax County employers working to improve employee commutes, and continues to excel in creating  flexible, productive workplace for employees.

Qualifying for the BWC guidelines also includes positive outcomes – such as increased productivity; enhanced recruitment and retention efforts; reduced environmental impacts; and a better quality of life.

“I’m honored to recognize a record number of Fairfax County employers who, in 2017, lead the region in providing high-level commuter benefit programs to their employees. Employers who offer commuting alternatives receive value through enhanced recruitment and retention of staff, and decreased parking expenses, as well the ability to limit employee absenteeism. It’s a win-win for employers, employees and Fairfax County,” said Walter Daniel, Senior Transportation Planner with Fairfax County Department of Transportation.

Since 2010, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, in partnership with the University of South Florida, Center for Urban Transportation Research, has designated over 63 Fairfax County employers as "Best Workplaces for Commuters." This designation acknowledges employers who have excelled in implementing sustainable and flexible commuter programs such as ride-sharing, transit benefits, biking and walking, teleworking, alternate work schedules and other strategies. These types of commuter programs improve mobility by reducing the number of single-occupant vehicles on the roads.

Best Workplaces for Commuters is a membership program that provides qualified employers with national recognition and an elite designation for offering outstanding commuter benefits. Employers that meet the National Standard of Excellence in commuter benefits—a standard created by the National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—can get on the list and receive high level programs and services. The Best Workplaces for Commuters program is managed by the National Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida.
