Commuting to the workplace has become a universal problem. It's challenging for people to travel daily in poor weather, crowded public transportation, suffocating compartments and be stuck in snail-paced traffic conditions. It can be very difficult for them to stay productive, cheerful and lively at work after facing these conditions every single day during the office commute.
We at Be Driven have seen that many companies now prefer to offer an employee shuttle service. Aside from the obvious environmental benefits, there are a number of other benefits to opting for it, such as:
- Improved Employee Productivity- Since the shuttle service will pick up and drop employees from specific locations such as outside metros, major bus depots or even from their doorstep, this reduces stress and the overall travel time for your employees. They are able to travel in comfort and will be less stressed when they get to work, which will improve their productivity.
- Punctuality- It isn't uncommon for employees to walk in late to work. When you have an employee shuttle service, it saves everyone the stress and strain of driving through traffic, which makes it easier for them to reach work on time. Your employees will be more enthusiastic and energized when they get to work which also helps create a better-connected sense of teamwork.
- Save Costs- Commuting to work can be expensive. On average, most people spend at least a couple of hours a day and about 20% of their income on travel to their workplace. If you as a company provide an employee shuttle service, it will significantly reduce the cost.
A shuttle is a less expensive alternative as it can provide greater mileage. If you are currently providing cab services or reimbursing your employees for their commute to work, an employee shuttle is a more cost-effective option for you. You wouldn't need to provide as much parking space for your employees which reduces the overall parking rent as well.
In addition to all these benefits, introducing an employee shuttle is a great way to improve your reputation in the marketplace and attract prospective candidates.
