Want to get rolling?
Become a leader and stand out as a top employer in your industry with the Bike Friendly Business Certification. The certification provides organizations with bike friendly solutions that will get your company recognized and celebrated. The steps to certification are simple:
1) ASSESS: HUB Bike Friendly Business Specialists arrive on site to assess cycling facilities and educate staff on the optimal cycling experience for your workplace context. The assessment includes a score, designating your bikeability level (bronze to platinum), along with recommendations and practical tips for improving your scoring. Clients also receive a Bike Friendly Business Resource Guide, outlining the best practices and support available for business.
2) ENGAGE: An Employee Cycling Survey is distributed to gain employee input into the cycling culture of the company. Workplace Cycling Lunch n’ Learns are provided to reach riders of all abilities. Additional services are offered to provide employees with benefits and cycling knowledge that will keep them confident on the road.
3) ACHIEVE: With a new understanding of your building and employee needs, improvements can be made to physical facilities or workplace programming. HUB Cycling has trusted partners to deliver discounted products and services that help you reach your goals.
4) AWARD: Employers are formally certified and recognized publicly at the annual Bike Friendly Business Awards. Employers that make improvements after the initial assessment can apply via a Bikeability Self-Assessment prior to the awards event to increase their standing. All companies that participate in the certification receive a Bike Friendly Business digital badge, social media recognition and media release.
The Bike Friendly Business Certification is an annual agreement of the above services designed to optimize cycling facilities, employee engagement and recognize your efforts. Businesses choose your time commitment depending on your budget, your current standing and the improvements you want to achieve. We are here to help you reach your goals!
