ITD earns Gold Award for May In Motion
The Idaho Transportation Department recently won a Gold Award for its participation in May in Motion, an annual campaign that encourages employees to get active in bicycling, walking, or sharing rides to work.
To earn the Gold, a business must have more than 10% of their employees participate in May in Motion at least four times per month. ITD had 14% participation.
In addition, the department had multiple employee incentives: bike racks, bike share, alternate work hours, telecommute, and showers.
ITD also had six promotions (promoted MyCommuterCrew.com, posted on a bulletin board, provided brochures and flyers, had a tabling with Commuteride, and promote smart transportation at health fairs).
“You need 15% to receive a Platinum award and you were SO close this year — I know you can do it!” ACHD Outreach Specialist Christina Torkelson wrote in an email to ITD May in Motion Coordinator Dianna Magstadt.
