The award recognises the work that has taken place to encourage their staff to make more environmentally friendly and health-conscious travel choices.
Wendy Graham, Edinburgh’s Cycle Friendly Employer co-ordinator, said “Staff at Maximillion Events Ltd are fully supported and encouraged to cycle to work with cycle parking; shower and changing facilities; and a newly introduced business mileage rate for cyclists, alongside other pro-cycling facilities, services and policies.
As such we are proud to formally honour the effort and hard work which has gone in to cycle promotion at Maximillion Events Ltd, with the nationally recognised Cycle Friendly Employer Award”.
Cycling Scotland’s Cycle Friendly Employer Award is run in conjunction with the Scottish Centre for Healthy Working Lives. The aim of the award is to give employers the incentive to achieve a nationally recognised award for promoting cycling in the workplace which will result in benefits for employers and staff alike. The award also provides best practice guidance in relation to cycle commuting and can be used as a practical tool to implement cycle measures as part of a sustainable travel plan.
