Rockville Bicycle Friendly Business Workshop
Date: April 10, 2013
Time: 8:15 AM - 10:00 AM
Please join us for a Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) Workshop at Dawson's Market, Rockville Town Square on Wednesday, April 10, 2013. Breakfast is from 8:15 to 8:30 am. The program starts at 8:30 am SHARP. This free event was made possible through a grant from Performance Bicycle and is designed to help businesses encourage and support their employees to commute to work by bicycle. Each year the League of American Bicyclists awards businesses across the country that have made significant strides in becoming a more bicycle friendly place to work. This high distinction can help employers set themselves apart by demonstrating their commitment to workplace wellness. Data shows that increased workplace wellness can benefit employers by:
- Reducing healthcare costs by 20 to 55 percent
- Reducing short-term sick leave by six to 32 percent
- Increasing productivity by two to 52 percent
The BFB Workshop will give businesses in the Rockville area the tools they need to improve workplace wellness by providing a favorable environment for bicycle commuting.
