There is a trend towards companies offering their employees group transportation and corporate shuttle service. Companies see the benefits of providing some relief for their employees’ daily commute, which in turn, contributes to increased productivity.
Dealing with traffic can get tedious and contribute to stress-related health problems; once in the office, it can take an employee longer to get into work mode. Using a shuttle service gives them time to prepare for their day by checking their email or they can just relax. Once they arrive in office they are more prepared to transition over to work mode.
Employee shuttles offer a less expensive alternative for employees and might offer the ability for companies to save money as well. Over time it can cut down on parking lot expenses and employee mileage expenditures.
Offering a shuttle service is a great way to contribute to fewer vehicles on the road and thereby reduce your carbon footprint. It also helps raise awareness with your employees so they can help the environment and lower their dependence on fossil fuel.
Offering your employees a shuttle service creates an incentive for them to work with you because they not only save on fuel expenses but they are less stressed when they get to work. It is also a great way for them to interact with their co-workers and feel more connected to their workplace
