Companies can also join the competition, namely in the Bike-friendly Employer of the Year category. Any company can sign up through one of their employees – either a Company Coordinator or, if a company doesn’t have one, any employee of the company. Signing up involves answering a questionnaire entitled Bike-friendly Employer of the Year in your profile. The questionnaire is an evaluation of measures through which the employer encourages its employees in biking to work. If the company has several branches or localities, each of these facilities is evaluated independently, as a stand-alone entity.
A company with the highest number of points in the Bike-friendly Employer of the Year 2018 questionnaire for supporting biking to work will be awarded the Bike-friendly Employer of the Year award.
The first three companies with the highest number of points will be visited by the local Bike to Work organizer and the final winner will be selected based on the actual measures and facilities supporting biking to work.
One of the criteria of the Bike-friendly Employer of the Year category is also a question whether the company organized its own Bike to Work company-wide competition for their employees.
Companies that are an official Bike to Work partners/sponsors or winners from previous years cannot receive the award.
