Ellucian Recognized as a Fairfax First 100 Employer
Ellucian has been recognized by Fairfax County as a “First 100” employer in its Best Workplaces for Commuters program. Ellucian was initially recognized on Fairfax County’s Best Workplaces for Commuters list in 2013 and has steadily maintained that status.
Through this program, Fairfax County Department of Transportation recognizes employers who have excelled in implementing green commuter programs, including ridesharing, transit benefits, alternate work schedules. With a goal of encouraging alternatives to driving alone to work, Fairfax County provides information to employers, residential properties and commuters about ridesharing, needed infrastructures for bicyclists and teleworkers, and incentives for commuters.
With many large companies and the federal government present in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area, traffic is often congested and long commutes can be an hindrance to obtaining top talent. The offerings that Ellucian provides help ease the stress of commuting on employees (and the environment) and are an essential part of the daily experience at the company. The company offers telework options and pre-tax advantages for public transit fares and vanpool costs, as well as specific benefits at the Reston headquarters such as access to electric-vehicle recharging stations and proximity to mass transit systems.
