On October 17 bike-friеndly employers of Kyiv gathered at the ceremony of awarding the competition «Bike-employer of 2017», which the Association of cyclists of Kyivhas been organizing for eight year at a stretch.
The organizers want to attract as many companies as possible to develop the bicycle infrastructure of the capital. «The purpose of our competition for Kyiv employers is to help transform Kyiv into a comfortable city and to encourage the creation of bike infrastructure in offices of companies and organizations. But the history of Ukrainian bike-employers proves that a bike-friendly business obtain benefits from bike-conditions at workplaces. These are healthy workers who come to work on time, because they do not depend on traffic jams, and also a positive image of the brand «, — said Anastasia Makarenko, Director of the Association of Cyclists in Kyiv.
In 2015, «OBOLON» conducted a survey among employees, which showed that every tenth employee arrives to work by bike. Taking into account such indicators, it was decided to provide employees with all the necessary conditions: parking for bicycles, showers and locker rooms. Not only brewers, but also visitors of the firm store located on the territory of the enterprise use the parking for bicycle.
This year PrJSC «OBOLON» received the Diploma «For the introduction of bike- conditions for employees and promoting the development of comfortable city» within the framework of the competition «Bike-employer of2017». Such awards are certainly important for the Corporation, becouse «OBOLON» develops and supports an active and sportive way of life.
