What is the Race to Excellence?  The Race is a challenge that encourages, recognizes, and highlights dedicated professionals throughout the country who promote commuter benefits, transportation options and the Best Workplaces for Commuters designation in their workplaces and throughout their local communities. Even if you did not enter this year’s Race, we encourage you to see what your peers have been doing to deliver high quality commuter benefit programs that employees truly value.

Keynote Speaker: Velma Booth, Senior Manager of Administrative Core Services with Booz Allen Hamilton.  Booz Allen Hamilton supports outstanding commuter benefits and flexible transportation options to improve quality of life and work-life balance for employees.  A new strategic initiative, “Way We Work,” will help Booz Allen decrease its carbon footprint and our employees’ commute time.  Developed in 2009, this multi-year strategy is all about working where we need to, when we need to – a flexible framework that includes remote delivery, teleworking, hoteling at work sites nearest to the employee’s home, virtual events, and other work arrangements that better connect talent with opportunity in ways that benefit clients and staff, support the environment, and promote work-life integration.
