When you're one of the County's
largest employers, space is a luxury.

the organization was constantly
looking for ways to improve the lives
of their people. For some, dealing with
their commute was an issue, so the
company looked for ways to decrease
the number of individual drivers.
And with expanding operations and
construction, they found that parking
became a main topic of discussion and

"We currently encourage employees to
register with Commuter Services of PA
where they can find carpool matches
and use the Emergency Ride Home
Program," commented Lauren Weaver,
Sustainability Specialist, Eurofins
Lancaster Laboratories. "We have also
begun working with Enterprise to create
vanpools. With this program, a group
of employees can rent an Enterprise
vehicle monthly for a very affordable
cost. This not only saves money for
the employee, but it also reduces our
overall carbon footprint and necessary
parking spaces. We also have dedicated
carpool preferred parking areas to
encourage employees to share their
commute. Many of these spots are full
on a regular basis."

deciding where to work and nearly 64%
won't take a job if a potential employer
doesn't have a strong CSR. And, in
an industry like Eurofins Lancaster
Laboratories, where recruitment
