Imagine! and Xilinx Win Go-Tober 2017!

Imagine! and Xilinx Win Go-Tober 2017!

Smart Commute is proud to share that two of the four companies that won Go-Tober 2017 are Smart Commute-supported companies:  Imagine! in Lafayette and Xilinx in Longmont.  Way to Go!

Both Imagine and Xilinx started strong, and they both earned “surprise and delights” for their workplaces due to their first-week performances.  Xilinx received awesome customized espresso beverages, and Imagine! received beautiful cupcakes.  These treats were available company-wide, so even non-participants could enjoy the benefits of their co-workers commuting choices.

What was the reason for Imagine’s and Xilinx’ success?  Both companies had support from senior staff and executives, both companies promoted the challenge using the pre-created campaign emails (written by Way to Go), and both worked with Smart Commute to engage employees on-site with sign-up drives and carpool matching events (see more detail about these events on this post).

Check out the impressive results from this year’s challenge in this fun infographic, produced by Way to Go.

Go-Tober is a whole month (10/1/2017–10/31/2017) dedicated to experiencing new, smarter ways to get around. Companies with 100+ employees have been challenged to get as many of their employees as possible to commute smarter at least once a week throughout October. Carpool, telework, vanpool, bike, walk, take the bus or transit – any way is a smart commute go-getter way.  Learn more about Go-Tober at the program website.  Interested in participating next year?  Contact us to reserve your spot now!
