MITRE Receives Gold Award from the Best Workplaces for Commuters

February 2016

The MITRE Corporation was named to the list of Gold Employers for 2015 in the annual Race to Excellence award sponsored by Best Workplaces for Commuters, a program designed to encourage sustainable transportation innovation. The awards recognize organizations who have taken exemplary steps to offer transportation options such as vanpool and transit benefits or telework and compressed workweek for their employees. This is the second consecutive year that MITRE has been selected to the Gold Employers list of only about a dozen organizations so designated in the nation. Consideration for the Gold Employer designation is limited to those companies that meet the National Standard of Excellence in commuter benefits, a standard established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and maintained by the National Center for Transit Research (NCTR).
