Ease Into The New Year With A Better Commute For Employees
Table of Contents
The New Year is almost upon us, and there are some things that never change. The same pressure to attend that New Year’s Eve party. The guilt when you think about last year’s resolutions, and the three times you actually got to the gym. And the cold. That dark, biting, freezing cold.
Commuting In Winter Is No Fun
Most of the day is fine. Employees either warm and cozy at home, or at the office, where it’s a pleasant, temperature-controlled 70 degrees. The part where they’re most likely exposed is their work commute. And this is where winter really sucks.
It could be in the freezing morning, where they do the long rush to your stop only to discover that the bus is late, and they stand there getting soaked. Or on the way home from work where, bundled up, they are standing on the bus (of course there are no available seats) and they would love to take off some layers before they burn to death – if only they could move.
Drive a car? Grab that shovel. It’s the morning ritual of shoveling the driveway that everyone loves so much. Not to mention the treacherous, stressful drive to and from work. Oh, and the tolls…
Just like seeing the first green of spring after a tough winter, there is some light at the end of this gloom.
Upgrade Your Employees’ Commute
That’s right. The winter commuting experience doesn’t have to be terrible! In fact, it can even be one of the highlights of their day. You read that correctly.
Imagine the following: your employee wake up, and check their phone to see when their bus is arriving. They’ve already reserved tickets through the app, so they’re not worried about missing out on a seat. They see the bus is on time, and they go make coffee and hang out with the kids.
When they’re done, they check the app again and see their bus is 5 minutes out. They say your goodbyes and walk to their stop – it’s a couple of feet away – just as the bus is pulling up.
They sit on a luxury leather seat, connect to the wifi, and catch up on the news. They arrive at work rested, relaxed and recharged.
