29 – Firms who Received SANDAG iCommute’s Platinum Tier Diamond Award
Dudek was one of 29 firms to receive the Platinum Tier Diamond Award. The Diamond Awards recognize employers in the San Diego region who have made strides to promote alternative commute choices in the workplace. Only 20% of firms recognized (140) achieve this highest tier.
100 – Laptops Recycled
This year, we partnered with Computers 2 Kids San Diego, transitioning from our practice of selling back retired laptops to the vendor to donating them to C2K San Diego. This year’s donations empowered 100 San Diegans to work or attend school through access to technology.
10k – Metric Tons of CO2 Reduced
2020 was a year unlike any other, including the rapid pivot to teleworking. Though it had its own challenges, by transitioning our staff to teleworking, we kept each other safe and reduced CO2 emissions by 10,000 metric tons.
