The Center for Urban Transportation Research has named TeraThink one of the Best Workplaces for Commuters for 2018! Best Workplaces for Commuters is an innovative membership program. It provides qualified employers with national recognition and an elite designation for offering outstanding commuter benefits.
TeraThink has over 200 employees located across Northern Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, who commute to client sites on daily basis. Many of our employees utilize the local metro and bus system or pay-for-parking lots. As a company, we felt the need to alleviate some of the stress associated with the daily commute. We are proud to be recognized for our efforts.
Easing the Commuting Burden
In addition to participating in pre-tax commuter benefits, TeraThink goes above and beyond the basic benefit offerings. To alleviate some of the financial burden of commuting, all DC Metro employees are eligible to receive $75 every month to be deposited directly into their commuter accounts! Not only does this reduce traffic and air pollution in our area, but it also relieves our people of the stresses of the daily drive.
This year, we even added access to Lyft and Uber Pool as another low-cost ride sharing option. Employees can now use their pre-tax transit benefits along with TeraThink’s $75 monthly subsidy as part of this service.
Going the Extra Mile
Although taking to the road or rails can be the speediest way into work, some live locally or just need to go a short distance from the metro to their office. For those employees, we offer additional perks for taking the extra steps. TeraThink’s Wellness Program not only encourages employees to take steps, we incentivize them through our quarterly walking challenges. Prizes for the winners of the walking challenges vary anywhere from Happy Hours to discounts on some new running shoes. The best prize of them all is a healthy lifestyle!
TeraThink is extremely proud of our progressive commuter benefit offerings. It helps our employees save time and money. On top of that, it alleviates the stress associated with a daily commute. Most importantly, it helps offer a healthy work-life balance. Offering commuter benefits is a priority for TeraThink. It speaks to our culture of putting the needs of our employees and this community first.
