Getting employees back in the office has been no easy feat. One sticking point for a lot of companies is the commute. Public transit and micromobility options may not be close to the office so you have to consider other creative options. One of those is the corporate shuttle.
Here are five benefits to hiring a corporate shuttle for your business.
1 – Increased productivity
Instead of relying on vehicles that have you focus on the road, a corporate shuttle service does the driving for you. Employees can check their email, relax, and prepare for a productive day in the office. They will feel ready for work and be in a much better state of mind than driving in rush hour traffic.
2 – Attract and retain the best employees
Hiring a corporate shuttle service can help your employees stay or join your company. Corporate shuttles give you distinctive advantages you can promote, including saving money on gas, tolls, and the maintenance of a vehicle. While others will promise a hectic commute, you can offer a meaningful benefit that can truly help employees live better lives.
3 – Corporate shuttles mean green commuting
Rather than having your employees drive themselves, help them reduce their carbon footprints with a corporate shuttle service. When you compare various types of group travel, the charter bus is the greenest one you can choose.
4 – Cost savings
Corporate shuttles also help businesses save money. Depending on your location, commuter benefits, state tax credits, or other programs may be available for offering the service to your employees. It can also be cheaper than paying out mileage or building parking lots.
5 – A great time for team building
Corporate shuttles help your employees meet new team members from different groups they don’t always work with. A shuttle service can offer a great time to network and helps your employees build ties to each other and your company, which helps with employee engagement.
