A bicycle-friendly workplace is great for companies and their employees. Cycling can contribute to the success of a business or organisation and supporting employees getting to work by cycling is a worthwhile investment.
The cycle-friendly employer certification scheme was developed to establish a European standard for cycle friendly companies. The certification is intended to help European companies to improve the situation for employees that cycle to work. As an acknowledgement for their effort these companies receive the certificate “cycle-friendly employer”.
The certification is built up around many different bicycle friendly measures, that are described in the guidebook “bicycle friendly employer – easy made”
