Collectively, ITD employees recorded 1,173 trips via alternative modes in May.
In addition to participation level, May In Motion awards also are based on incentives and promotions. ITD offered five subsidies/incentives and six promotions, which would have qualified the department for the highest honor of platinum – if the individual participation had been higher.
Twenty-one employers finished at the platinum level that required 15 percent participation, five subsidies/incentives and five promotions. The gold standard required 10 percent participation and four incentives/subsidies and four promotions while silver required 7 percent participation and three subsidies/incentives and three promotions.
Results were announced at an awards luncheon Thursday.
