The Benefits of a Corporate Shuttle Service
There’s a trend showing up recently in cities of all sizes across the country. Companies are providing corporate shuttle service to and from work for their employees in comfortable buses and vans. Employees drive to predetermined locations fairly close to their homes where these buses and vans pick them up for work and drop them off afterwards. Many companies are finding that this arrangement results in a wide range of unexpected benefits. Initially, these companies started employee shuttle service programs as a perk for their employees, but they’re discovering that the benefits of a corporate shuttle service include the following:
- Reduced fossil fuel consumption
This one’s fairly obvious. With gas prices so high and our dependence on foreign oil creating problems for ourselves and other people around the world, any progressive ideas for reducing oil consumption, such as employee shuttle service, are good ideas.
- Employees arrive at work relaxed and prepared
Driving to and from work in heavy rush hour traffic, especially in large urban areas, is stressful for any employee. A corporate shuttle service alleviates that stress and allows employees to focus on the day’s tasks and prepare for work en route.
- Outside the box’ brainstorming opportunities
If employees from different departments who may never have the opportunity to speak with each other over the course of a day ride to work together in an employee shuttle service, think about how many opportunities that presents to cut overhead and streamline operations.
- Increased productivity
Several studies have shown that carpooling and employee shuttle services cut absenteeism significantly, which increases overall productivity and provides health benefits across the board from reduced stress.
- A greater sense of community
Employee shuttle services create unparalleled team-building opportunities for a company of any size. Instead of arriving separately for work every day and seldom meeting or speaking with each other, employees riding together to and from work every day get at least ten opportunities each week to talk and interact with each other.
These are but a few of the many advantages of corporate shuttle services for employees and employers alike. Employee shuttle services are environmentally responsible, foster an enhanced sense of camaraderie and, ultimately, save companies money through increased productivity and reduced health care costs.
