ASHBURN, Va., Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Telos ® Corporation, a leading provider of cyber, cloud and enterprise security solutions for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, has been named one of the 2020 Best Workplaces for Commuters for offering employees exceptional commuter benefits.

Telos is among a select group of workplaces in the United States that have achieved the Best Workplaces for Commuters National Standard of Excellence by providing an array of commuter benefits, resulting in at least 14 percent of their employee base not driving alone to work within a 12-month period. Telos offers employees several commuter benefit options, including:  

  • Teleworking program, which reduced the number of commuting trips employees took per week by at least 6 percent,
  • Compressed work schedules that reduced overall employee commuting trips, and
  • Secure bicycle parking at Telos headquarters, and on site showers and lockers accessible to employees who walk or bike to the workplace.

“Telos Corporation is one of the top employers in the nation offering high level commuter benefits to their employees,” said Julie Bond, program manager, Best Workplaces for Commuters. “Telos made the list because they offer transportation choices that include a teleworking program and the option of a compressed work week. Telos gives its employees the support they need to get to and from work and be at their best before, during, and after their workday.”

“We take immense pride in receiving our 2020 Best Workplaces for Commuters national designation,” said Shelley Trask, vice president of human resources, Telos.  “Our benefits give us a competitive edge in employee recruitment and retention while helping reduce traffic congestion and negative environmental impact.”

The Best Workplaces for Commuters program offers designated organizations access to a range of support services to assess and promote non-driving commuting of employees, including organizational assessment and implementation tool-kits, web-based tools and webinars, staff training, and information exchange.
