About Employer Solutions

In today's business environment, recruiting and retaining our most valued asset – our employees – is essential for business success. This is ever more challenging during the much-needed Virginia Megaprojects construction phase – designed to bring transportation solutions and improved and increased choices to commuters across northern Virginia. That's why Virginia Megaprojects offer bottom line employer solutions that help you and your business.

Why This Is Important To Your Business

Whether you are a small business that just needs information, or a large employer with hundreds of works, the Employer Solutions Team can help make sure construction doesn't slow you and your employees down. We'll help ease the added stress and delay your employees may be experiencing by providing the latest information on commute programs, resources, and financial incentives available. Ultimately, this will result in better employee recruitment, retention, and productivity. 


How Megaprojects Affect You

The Virginia Megaprojects represent several billion dollars in much needed road and bridge improvements as well as the Dulles Metrorail Extension. Many of these transportation projects are occurring at the same time, making it more difficult to get around in the short term.


Employer Solutions Approach

Our team of transportation experts knows how to keep your company moving during Megaprojects construction. From a variety of business commuting solutions, we'll customize a program that specifically meets your employees' needs. We can provide:

  • Telework program technical assistance, consulting services and tax credits
  • Commute matching services (carpool, vanpool, bus, rail, Metro and slugging)
  • Density plot maps of employee home locations illustrating opportunities to share the ride
  • Alternative work hours approaches
  • Information about Park & Ride lots, the Guaranteed Ride Home Program and more
  • Transportation fair hosting, staff briefing or Lunch and Learn

Bottom Line for Employers

In today's business environment, recruiting and retaining your most valuable asset - your employees - is essential for success. But when your employees have to deal with road construction and stressful commutes on their way to work each day, it makes your job much harder. Virginia Megaprojects construction involves many simultaneous road projects, so commuting earlier or later to work isn't enough to help your employees avoid congestion.

The good news is Employer Solutions can help you develop a customized commuting program - at no cost to your company - that will save your employees time and money. We can also help you take advantage of incentive programs that may be available to you, such as up to a $50,000 tax credit for establishing or expanding a telework program at your company.

The bottom line is: Employer Solutions can help improve your bottom line.
