Bike to Work 09|03|17

We are the winners of the Bike Challenge 2016, the initiative promoted by FIAB, the Italian Federation of Friends of the Bicycle, which rewards companies that put on the bike saddle the highest number of employees.
With 78% of cyclists on the total number of employees, Poliedra has climbed both the national and the Milan ranking, taking the first place in the category “Companies from 20 to 49 employees.”.
A success chased by pedal strokes, by all the staff: for those companies working on cycling and city transports, direct experience represents an extremely important element in order to design services all-around the user. Here in Poliedra we try not to forget it: this is why, in our analysis and design processes, we often adopt an open, inclusive and participatory approach.
The award ceremony will be held on Friday, March the 10th, h. 17:00, at the stand of Comune di Milano at the “Fa’ la cosa giusta” national fair, in the presence of the Councillor for Mobility of Milan, Marco Granelli, and the President of FIAB, Giulietta Pagliaccio. Poliedra will be represented by its President, Alberto Colorni, and Federico Lia, head of the initiative.
See you there!
