Metro: Get There Oregon Commute Benefits Webinar Series
We marketed and produced a webinar series about a work benefit with renewed value in the COVID era: the commute benefit.

Helping Employers Get New Mileage Out of Commute Benefits

Metro is a regional land use and waste management agency serving Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties. Among their interests is the use of public resources for transportation services and infrastructure.

The agency tapped us to establish a marketing plan for, promote, and help produce a four-part webinar series focusing on how remote work, flexible work, and other commute benefits can be used to attract and retain employees—a topic of special significance in the COVID-19 economic climate.

The target market for this project was employers across the state of Oregon. Partners included the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), Get There Oregon, TriMet, and the Westside Transportation Alliance.
