Zoom Denver - We Need Bicycle Accommodations!
We want Bicycles accommodations for the Denver Zoom office.
Why is this important?
If you're like me, you are immensely proud of Zoom's mission to not only lead the charge on workplace happiness, but also to set a new standard for the impact we have on the community around us. This is evident in programs like our maternity/paternity benefits, in our grassroots nonprofit projects like Erin Kehoe's PB&J sandwich drive, and in our partnership with the Ronald McDonald House. Not to mention the incredible crew that makes it all happen (Thank you Emily Crane and Melissa Dorsch!). I am also just as proud of Denver's heart for being leaders in similar initiatives, like Denver's Housing First Program which has received $11 million from the city in the last 2 years and has an 89% retention rate among homeless recipients, to $447 million for 35 school construction projects across Colorado for 2018-2019. Zooms culture in Denver is the perfect storm, and we are constantly working towards setting new standards in responsible and forward-thinking community impact. One of the initiatives which Zoom has leaned into more recently is one around emissions/waste/environmental. From metal straws, to recycled plates and utensils, to public transportation benefits, Zoom has made a point of encouraging employees to reduce their environmental impact. Even our platform has massive benefit for customers via reduction in travel, which translates into unbelievable emissions savings (1 roundtrip flight from SF to London = 1 Ton of CO2). Where we currently lag far behind, especially in the Denver office of all places, is Bicycle accommodations. Bicycles are considered the most efficient form of transportation, and are widely accepted and accommodated for in the Tech industry, especially in Colorado. We know it may be an uphill battle with our building, but it is truly a small ask considering its impact, especially in the city where this is the standard.
How it will be delivered
Once the petition has been sufficiently backed, it will be presented to Zoom leadership to show our support for the change.
