Grand Hyatt New York has met the Standard of Excellence and is designated a Best Workplace for Commuters by offering a significant Pre-Tax Transit Benefit program to employees. Grand Hyatt provides employees with a diverse package of Commuter Benefits that improve quality of life and help support work-life challenges. Over 30% of employees at Grand Hyatt New York take advantage of their tax saving transit program.
Grand Hyatt New York has been providing Green Commuter Benefits for seven years. Recently, they rolled-out a Bike-to-Work program with funding through CommuterLink/NY Rideshare’s NYCCE (New York City Commute Enhancement) Grant. They purchased and installed a bike rack and security gate, and encouraged cyclists to ride in with a gift card prize to purchase equipment. Employees were able to enjoy riding to work during the warmer months and park their bike securely.
Working to encourage improved air quality and green initiatives, Grand Hyatt takes pride in consistently providing employees with opportunities to participate in positive earth-friendly events, such as the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb being held this November.
