MILWAUKEE (June 1, 2011) -- Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is pleased to announce that Wisconsin Partners for Clean Air (WPCA) has honored the firm with the 2011 Commuter Champion award.
The firm was recognized for offering on-site purchasing of pre-tax transit passes and vouchers, which provide approximately three weeks of transit per month to employees, along with displaying transit schedules and information. These efforts have led to a 15 percent workforce utilization of transit at the firm's Milwaukee office, avoiding parking fees and reducing vehicle emissions. Individuals in the transit programs are also eligible for emergency or guaranteed rides home, which are offered through the transit agency.
The firm's Milwaukee and Madison offices participate in "Bike to Work" events, as well as provide volunteers and sponsorships for the events.
Other commute initiatives include compressed or flex-work schedules and the availability of an Employee Transportation Coordinator to assist with commuting needs.
The WPCA program is a coalition of about 300 businesses, community organizations, schools and government agencies committed to improving air quality through voluntary action.
