Omaha & Council Bluffs Employers: Join the Next Round of ConnectGO Getting To Work Surveys
Do you know how your employees get to work? Do you know how they would like to?
Recruitment is underway for employers in Omaha and Council Bluffs to participate in the next round of ConnectGO Getting to Work Surveys to answer these questions and more.
More than 4,000 employees in the Omaha metro area participated in the first round of surveys between November 2020 to June 2021. A series of nine surveys, representing an employee population of nearly 16,000 people from more than 20 organizations, showed an exciting opportunity to shift 17% of pre-pandemic drive-alone trips to active commuting and working from home with supportive programming.
MAPA is now contracting Verdis Group to conduct a second round of active commuting surveys for employers in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area. As our city grows, it’s important to understand how people are getting to and from work right now and how they would prefer to commute. With this information, we can create a city that talented people want to call home.
