According to the 2010 Commuter Benefit Impact Survey, 60% of respondents said they thought their employers should take an active role in easing the difficulties of commuting. As commutes become increasingly more difficult, employees are looking to their employers to provide relief. Transplanting your office location to a place where traffic does not exist is probably not an option. However, providing your employees with benefits that help them get to and from work with less stress, lower costs, and in a reduced amount of time is something you can do now and at little or no cost!
Commuter benefit programs are simply programs implemented by employers to assist in relieving the stress their employees experience traveling to and from work. With commuter benefit programs, there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all. Each employer’s needs are different, and the benefit programs put in place need to reflect that through variety. Some programs cost more money and require more employer involvement, whereas others cost nothing at all and require little to no employer involvement. When choosing to implement or expand your commuter benefit program, you need to think about the level of commitment your company is willing to make.
