San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) recently received several
national and local awards.
The Transportation Marketing and Sales Association (TMSA) announced RTD as a
recipient of three 2015 Compass Awards. The awards program recognizes marketing
and sales best practices by transportation companies demonstrating effective
execution and measurable results. RTD received three 2015 Compass Awards of
Merit for the following programs: the RTD Fall Festival (Event category), the
Patriot Recognition Campaign (Integrated Marketing Category), and RTD’s 50th
Anniversary Video (Single Advertising Campaign). RTD competed against 80 entries
from 35 other companies and agencies for these awards.
RTD was selected as a recipient of a 2015 Gold Achievement in the American
Heart Association Fit-Friendly Program. The Fit-Friendly program annually
recognizes employers who champion the health of their employees and work to
create a culture of physical activity and health in the workplace.
The Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce recognized RTD as the 2015 FRESH
Employer of the Year. FRESH stands for Fitness Rejuvenates Employee
Sustainability & Health (FRESH) and is a Chamber program that encourages not
only physical fitness but the fiscal fitness of local Stockton Businesses. RTD
is the first ever recipient of this award. RTD encourages an organizational
culture “obsessed with wellness.” In 2012, RTD launched an enhanced Employee
Wellness Program. The mission of the program is to improve the health and
well-being of RTD employees and their families through activities that support
positive lifestyle changes and management of chronic conditions. Through this
program, RTD promotes employee health, increases productivity, promotes a safe
working environment, and avoids unnecessary health care costs.
“We wanted to create a culture obsessed with safety, and a culture obsessed
with wellness,” said RTD General Manager/CEO Donna DeMartino. “I’m really proud
for RTD to be recognized in this way.”
