"At GMG, we strive to create an environment where employees are valued and rewarded for the great work they do for our clients," said Leah Nurik, CEO of Gabriel Marketing Group.

Gabriel Marketing Group (GMG), the industry's leading technology marketing and public relations agency for disruptive high-growth companies, today announced its national designation as a "Best Workplace for Commuters" for offering exceptional employee-provided commuter benefits that meet the National Standard of Excellence criteria. Gabriel Marketing Group is among a select group of workplaces in the United States that have committed to employee-provided commuter benefits that result in at least 14 percent of their employee base not driving alone to work within a 12-month period.

"At GMG, we strive to create an environment where employees are valued and rewarded for the great work they do for our clients. Offering commuter benefits - such as teleworking, access to capital bike shares, pre-tax metro options and more - are just one way we give back to our extremely talented team members and strive to make their day-to-day lives a little easier and happier," said Leah Nurik, CEO of Gabriel Marketing Group. "We are honored to receive this award."

"Best Workplaces for Commuters" is a membership program that provides qualified employers with national recognition and an elite designation for offering outstanding commuter benefits. The program acknowledges employers who have excelled in implementing sustainable and flexible commuter programs such as ride-sharing, transit benefits, biking and walking, teleworking, alternate work schedules and other strategies.

"Gabriel Marketing Group is on the cutting edge of a national movement," said Julie Bond, program manager, Best Workplaces for Commuters. "They have listened to their employees' challenges with traffic congestion and their concerns over reducing emissions. By offering a range of commuter benefits such as subsiding bus fares, carpooling programs and access to Emergency Ride Home programs, Gabriel Marketing Group gives its employees the support they need to get to and from work, so they can be at their best. These benefits are good for the company and its employees."

The "Best Workplaces for Commuters" program recognizes companies that demonstrate positive outcomes of commuting policies, including increased productivity, enhanced recruitment and retention of employees, reduced environmental impacts and a better quality of life. Employers that meet the National Standard of Excellence in commuter benefits-a standard created by the National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-can get on the list and receive high level programs and services. The program is managed by the National Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida.
