Smart Commute Awards 2013
At the seventh annual Smart Commute Awards event on November 21, 10 workplaces were recognized for their outstanding efforts in helping employees explore alternatives to driving to work alone by taking transit, carpooling, walking, cycling or teleworking. One exceptional leader – Mohawk College – was chosen as the Smart Commute Regional Employer of the Year for 2013.
In addition, the Parsons Brinkerhoff Employee Engagement Award was presented to a Smart Commute employer that has demonstrated exceptional leadership, innovation and success in getting employees to re-think commuting. This year’s winner was the City of Mississauga.
This year’s Smart Commute Champion is Sante Esposito, General Manager, Mississauga Executive Centre, Colliers International. Mr. Esposito was recognized for his outstanding commitment and dedication to the growth and development of the Smart Commute program in both Mississauga and the Pearson Airport Area.
All award winners were selected by a panel of community members representing various sectors across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Nominations were evaluated based on the employer’s commitment to the program, leadership in their communities, innovation and measurable results.
