ANNANDALE, NJ (INGERSOLL RAND NEWS SERVICE) -- For the fourth-consecutive year the Industrial Technologies facility in Annandale, NJ, is the recipient of a Smart Workplaces Award from the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
The Smart Workplaces program applauds employers that provide commuter benefits to help employees address limited or expensive parking, reduce traffic congestion, improve employee recruiting and retention, and minimize the environmental impacts associated with drive-alone commuting.
Additionally this year, a “Carpool Impact” award was presented in the four-passenger category by HART Commuter Information Services. This award is presented to a carpool with the greatest savings in daily vehicle miles traveled. The carpool of Greg Albert, Timothy Bok, Mike Sikorski and Bill Winecker has a daily savings of 258 miles.
“These awards are quite an achievement by the employees at the Business Development Center and another example of the green initiatives in place at Ingersoll Rand,” said Edward Kozar of Human Resources - Americas for Industrial Technologies.
A non-profit alliance of the public and private sectors, HART is dedicated to reducing traffic congestion, improving air quality and providing information on the transportation choices available in Hunterdon County, NJ. In addition to providing information on carpools, HART provides various incentives for those who do car pool, including gasoline cards, car washes, oil changes and free traffic alerts.
