AF Bostäder is the most bicycle-friendly workplace in Lund, again!
We are proud and happy to have won Lund Municipality's competition for a bicycle-friendly workplace 2021!
Bicycle-friendly workplace is Lund Municipality's award for employers that make it easier for employees to cycle. This is the third time that AF Bostäder participates in the competition. In 2019, we received an award for Cycling Idea of the Year and both in 2020 and 2021, we were named Lund's most bicycle-friendly workplace! The municipality of Lund justifies the win in the following way:
“Despite success in both 2019 and 2020, AF Bostäder has not slowed down but continued to impress with new efforts to develop the staff's opportunities to cycle to, from, and during work. With the holistic approach that characterizes AF Bostäder, several areas are covered. In staff social activities, the bicycle has been an obvious element. Employees have been offered free training sessions on bicycles. AF Bostäder has now expanded the electric bicycle pool to all offices. New bicycle facilities where employees can park their bicycles safely and easily have been created. Employees have been encouraged with clear messages about cycling, free bicycle service, competitions, and the offer of a free bicycle helmet for those who cycle a lot at work. Once again, we see AF Bostäder as a real example of how a workplace can create good conditions for employees to take the bike to and from work, as well as during work!”
For the past three years, we have worked actively to create a good cycling culture at AF Bostäder. We offer employees good conditions to choose the bike over the car, which benefits both health and reduces climate impact. In 2021, for example, we have had bicycle service-at-work, cycled to Alnarp, and offered mountainbike and spinning as fitness activities. In a new, nice bicycle storage, employees can park their bicycles and do simple repairs.
We are happy that the employees are positive about the sustainable transport initiatives, and we will continue working actively with this also in 2022.
