Your employees are important to your business. They are your backbone, which means you need to look after them. Many businesses throughout Johannesburg and Pretoria are seeing the real benefits of investing in corporate shuttle services to ease the commute for their employees. Besides the benefits of a safer and more pleasant drive, here is why providing employee transportation is excellent for business.
Decreased Stress and Increased Productivity
A study from the UK’s Office of National Statistics revealed that stress-related health problems like high blood pressure, anxiety, high cholesterol, and depression are all associated with people who drive more than half an hour to work each way. Dealing with back-to-back traffic can create stress, and then arriving late to the office can create even more stress. Corporate shuttle services are not only reliable for arriving on time, but they also give employees a chance to catch up on social media, reply to emails, plan for the day ahead, or just relax and enjoy the silence before the storm.
It is a Money-Saving Win-Win for Employers and Employees
In our turbulent economy, finding ways to save money and still meet daily living expenses has become the hallmark of our times. With South Africans forced to pay exorbitant fuel prices and with corporates forced into spending hundreds of thousands on parking garages and petrol budgets, corporate shuttle services just make perfect sense. Saving time and eradicating transport costs for employees, shuttle services also help employers drastically reduce their parking garage expenses. And businesses are also eligible for tax benefits.
Attracting and Retaining Employees
A shuttle service can be a huge asset to any business, small or large. From safe and reliable commuting to saving money that you would have had to fork out on petrol – it is a fantastic perk for employees (and employees know this!). Offering your employees a shuttle service creates a culture of happy and productive employees who feel like they are appreciated. It is an incentive for them to work with you, which can be a great way to retain employees.
