On August 29, 2019, Best Workplaces for Commuters and Movability co-hosted a webinar, Keep Austin Moving – Showcasing Two Best Workplaces for Commuters, in which Merck and Cirrus Logic shared their commute program ideas and stories.

Through a partnership with Movability, the City of Austin metro area had the highest number of new Best Workplaces for Commuters named during 2019. Austin employers receiving recognition for their high level programs include Athenahealth, CAMPO, CMTA, Car2Go, Cirrus Logic, City of Austin, Downtown Austin Alliance, Google, IBM, Merck & Company, Silicon Labs, Texas Mutual Insurance Company, The Thrival Company, The University of Texas at Austin, Travis County, University Federal Credit Union and Whole Foods Market.

In 2017, Merck established its fourth global IT office in Austin. Even before the first employee was on the ground, Merck began integrating sustainable commute options into its culture in an effort to be a good community partner. Learn how Merck leveraged partnerships to build their successful commute program.

Cirrus Logic is one of the largest employers in congested downtown Austin. Through a comprehensive commute program, Cirrus Logic has turned its central location into one of its greatest assets, with an employee retention rate 11% higher than the national average. Hear why the commute matters as the company continues to grow.

Movability is the only transportation management association in Central Texas; they are the connective tissue between employers, transportation services providers, and the public sector. Movability partnered with the City of Austin to quadruple the number of Austin-area employers receiving the BWC designation in 2019. On this webinar, Movability announces its plans to grow that number even more in 2020.
