“Cracking Scheme, Gromit!”
01/07/2011

The scheme has even caught the attention of Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep creator Nick Park, who provided a signed poster to be awarded as a prize to one lucky employee.

Online PR News – 07-January-2011 – – Basingstoke, Hampshire - January 06, 2010 -- As a company HCR has always been environmentally conscious, they were the first relocation company in the UK to achieve ISO 140001 certification and in March 2010 planted 130 trees to launch their Sustainable Relocation promise.

However, its employees play a crucial part in their carbon management action plan by following the three R’s: Recycle, Reduce, Reuse. To continue their strong, green working culture in the summer, HCR introduced an innovative green card scheme, a walk to work incentive encouraging employees to walk, cycle, use public transport, or car share as an alternative to travelling to work via car.

Each employee received a credit card sized card and collected stickers for each day they used greener travel methods to get to work. Once 15 stickers had been collected the employee was entered into a monthly prize draw.

Early this month, in a bid to make this incentive greener, the HCR walk to work scheme went digital - allowing employees to take part in the scheme with a simple click of a mouse.

The scheme has even caught the attention of Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep creator Nick Park, who provided a signed poster to be awarded as a prize to one lucky employee.
