Geoff Rog, Wells Fargo ETC, Receiving Governor's Commute Smart Award
Wells Fargo Bank NA - Vancouver Collection Center
2011 Governor's Commute Smart Employer Champion Award Winner
The Vancouver Collection Center of Wells Fargo Bank NA was nominated for the Clark County's Commute Smart Employer Champion Award nominee because they implemented a carpool parking program and started with dedicated carpool parking spaces. Additionally a $30/month subsidy for team members who used alternative transportation to work was also started at this work site. Geoff Rog, the worksite ETC, has also led by example and participated in the regional Bike to Work month campaign – getting a team together and challenging another Wells Fargo worksite to some friendly competition. The worksite’s Green Team has recognizes the value of including CTR information at their green/environmental fairs and has invited both the CTR staff and the local transit agency to attend these events. Their commitment has paid off! During the recent survey the employee drive alone rate decreased 1.5% and their vehicle miles traveled decreased a whopping 13.6%!
Wells Fargo Financial Vancouver is a good example of the difference a great ETC plus CTR friendly policies and programs can make at a worksite.
