As a manager or business owner, you’ve seen what your employees are like after a tough commute. They arrive for work late, tired, frustrated and stressed out—and they haven’t even put in a full day of work yet. Studies show traffic related stress lingers long after the car is parked. Eventually it takes its toll in the form of tardiness, missed days, lost productivity, and in some cases ongoing retention issues.
But the commute doesn’t have to have a negative impact on employee morale or your bottom line. Employers can make getting to and from work less stressful by promoting and providing alternate commute choices for employees. Providing such programs is not difficult or costly. They are probably some of the easiest benefits you can offer, because RideWise does the work for you.
The end result? Employees arrive on time and ready to work, not stressed-out and weary after a long, tension-filled commute. In fact, many employers are finding commute alternatives help employees balance work and family life, because they’re not spending as much time and energy commuting.
