Employers provide several perks for their employees: some keep the break room stocked with snacks (and possibly among those fancy Coca-Cola freestyle machines where you can mix 100 different soda combinations), others bring lunch in on a regular basis, and some offer casual dress Fridays. Some render employees spending money to use for food, and others make a big deal about birthdays and acknowledging hard work from their team.
There’s another option out there, though, another perk that can improve your employees, especially if your office is located in a big city. Have you ever thought of offering a work shuttle to those who work for you, an easier way to get to work in crazy traffic on busy mornings?
As a motorcoach company, we love team up with office owners and managers to modify transportation plans to specifically meet their needs. If you’ve never thought of establishing a shuttle for your employees, listed here are some of the factors you might want to consider it.
For beginners, it’s an added benefit and makes the job you offer just another step ahead of the norm. A shuttle indicates your employees won’t have to negotiate public transportation or pay for gas for the commute to work each day.
Second, it’s nice to be able to avoid handling crazy traffic, particularly if your office is located in the heart of a busy city. Sometimes just taking care of commute traffic is enough to make some of us angry, and offering this service means that your employees won’t have to stress over it. They can pay attention to other things while we take charge of the driving.
Third, did you know our coaches come equipped with power outlets? This is a great benefit for any of your employees who may want to plug in before arriving at the office for some last-minute prep. Regardless of what the reason, offering power on our coaches means that your employees can plug in en route and get a jump start before they even get to the office.
Some folks like to plug into social media first thing in the morning to kind of touch base with the world. On the crazy mornings, when that doesn’t happen before leaving the house, we make that a moot point by offering WiFi on our coaches. When gearing up for the day or relaxing when it’s over, it can be nice for your employees to be able to surf the Internet on their phones or spend a few minutes on Facebook or Instagram to see what friends are up to.
So, next time you’re thinking about offering another great conveniences to show your employees that you appreciate them, contact us! We’d love to sit down with you to assess what type of transportation plan would benefit your office. Our specialists are wonderful at what they do, and we ‘d love to assist make your employees’ commute easy, stress-free and streamlined.
