HERNDON, VA (December 19, 2018)Northwest Federal Credit Union was recognized as a Best Place to Work for Commuters at the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting on December 5th.

The Best Workplaces for Commuters designation awards employers who have excelled in implementing sustainable and flexible commuter programs such as ridesharing, transit benefits, biking and walking, teleworking, alternate work schedules and other strategies. These types of commuter programs improve mobility by reducing the number of single-occupant vehicles on the road.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Best Place to Work for Commuters,” said Jeff Bentley, President & CEO of Northwest Federal Credit Union. “Knowing our employees commute in from a variety of communities in the DC metro area, we work hard to try and alleviate some of the traffic and stress that can accompany long commutes through our ride share program, alternate work schedules and a metro accessible location.”
