TRP Company and Commuter Spotlights: Sunquest Information Systems

Sunquest Information Systems develops, delivers and supports software solutions that automate the operations of laboratory and diagnostic processes.

Carole Brabham, the company’s Transportation Coordinator, recognizes that commute choices play a big role in people making healthier decisions, so she encourages Sunquest employees to find alternate ways to get to work besides just driving alone.
Brabham recently began a wellness tracking calendar as part of the revived “SunquestCares” program where employees can log fitness, volunteer opportunities, education points and more. Employees earn points for each activity logged and can redeem those points for
TRP Company and Commuter Spotlights: Sunquest Information Systems various prizes throughout the year. Sun Rideshare’s information is included on the calendar, promoting alternative transportation. “Sun Rideshare is mentioned on the [wellness] calendar, so
employees know they can earn double points for alternate mode commutes – points on the SunquestCares calendar and points through PAG,” she said.

Brabham also regularly presents Sun Rideshare information at the company’s Springboard orientation program for new hires, including sharing Sun Rideshare’s “Do Zombies Carpool?” infomercial, and she hosts Lunch & Learn events for employees to understand what
alternate transportation options are available and the benefits of these options.

Brabham’s work is paying off, as several employees are taking advantage of the opportunities offered at the office.
