Employer Services

Good employees are hard to find. Once you find them, how do you keep them?

Each day area employers lose money because their workers arrive at work stressed from driving alone to work. Providing employees with a helpful commuter program is a great way to retain valued employees, increase productivity and expand your labor pool.

Transportation Coordinator Spotlight: Kynna Armstrong, GEICO

From auto to homeowners to ATV insurance, GEICO has provided insurance policies since 1936. The company has more than 13 million auto policies (and growing) and insures more than 22 million vehicles.

The Tucson regional office employs more than 1,100 full-time employees. Kynna Armstrong, the company’s  Transportation Coordinator, recognizes that commuting is time consuming and costly, so she encourages employees to participate in the new office carpooling program.

Parking at GEICO is limited, and some employees have to park offsite, either on the street or in a different lot. To incentivize employees to drive less, GEICO has reserved spaces at the front of the building for carpoolers.

Using the Sun Rideshare carpool match program, employees can connect with other employees who either live near each other or along their route to work. To take advantage of the carpool spots, three GEICO employees must be in the carpool.

“We have two spots right now, but there is no limit to the number of spaces as long as there are participants,” Kynna said. GEICO’s Regional Vice President sponsored the initial announcement email, and HR also has sent mass emails to remind employees. More email reminders are planned as they try to reduce the number of cars coming to GEICO. Kynna recognizes that scheduling considerations may make carpooling difficult, but they are working to expand the program.

In addition to the carpool incentive, GEICO has several fliers and information, including public transit maps, in all of its break rooms. The company also provides information about alternative transportation options to all of its new hires.
