Sun announced that the company has been designated as one of the Best Workplaces for Commuters by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). For the third year in a row, Sun is among the top 10 FORTUNE 500 companies that lead the country by providing outstanding commuter benefits to a significant portion of its U.S. workforce to help decrease air pollution, traffic congestion, and dependence on fossil fuels. Sun tops the rankings as the number one company in the Computer and Office Equipment industry.
“Sun’s flexible work program for its mobile and distributed workforce, called iWork, consists of leading-edge technologies and forward-thinking work practices that create an innovative, productive work environment where the network is the computer and employees can work anywhere, anytime using any device. The program offers flexible work choices that include the option to work from home or a local drop-in center which allows employees to spend less time and money on commuting. Sun employees also use SMART (Sun Microsystems Alternative Resources for Transportation) programs and services which give up-to-date commuter information, incentives for taking transit, biking and walking to work as well as shuttle rides to better utilize public transportation options near Sun campuses.”
