Object Partners encourages green practices for employees

To encourage employees to live greener, healthier lives Object Partners Inc. has extended new benefits to those who pedal to work.  When the $700 Billion dollar bailout bill passed last fall, The Bicycle Commuter Act quietly passed making available the ability for companies to offer reimbursement for bicyclists as well as those who bus or require parking.  Employees who ride their bicycles to work can now be reimbursed for a portion of the cost of cycling – tune ups, tires, bike locker rental, etc..

The offering helps people choose a healthier, more eco-friendly way to get to and from work.  Of course the residual benefits come in reducing congestion, pollution, and demand for fossil fuels.  Forward thinking companies incentifying employees to make the right choices is a great first step in changing domestic corporate culture for everyones benefit.  It is really wonderful to see companies like Object Partners jump in and get behind greening up IT.
