Employee Promo Guide

Welcome to BikePGH’s Employee Promotion Guide for your HR initiatives!

Since 2008, BikePGH has helped dozens of businesses build productive workplace cultures that promote active forms of transportation and recreation. These environments are places where employees are healthier, happier, more creative, and more engaged.

We encourage you and your company’s HR team to use the text, photos, and links below to promote BikePGH’s 2017 events and initiatives to your employees. Reach us at business@bikepgh.org, for more details or if there are any other questions.

 

OpenStreetsPGH

OpenStreetsPGH is a free event series run by BikePGH.  The events invite residents, families, visitors, and friends to come out and enjoy Pittsburgh’s streets without cars.  Run, bike, walk, play, sing, dance, or just hang out and people watch.  Each month OpenStreetsPGH heads to a new neighborhood to engage new businesses, neighbors, families and friends.  Stop by one or come to all three!
