Brand Story – Supporting shared commute solutions like carpooling can give employers a competitive edge to retain and attract employees, especially on-site shift workers that can’t use transit or other options. Empower employees to carpool using free ridematching tools and support services from Get There Oregon and our partner network.
Among the key factors impacting employee job satisfaction today, the commute is at the top of the list. Notwithstanding the COVID crisis, employee commutes have steadily gotten longer not only due to growing traffic congestion, but farther distances traveled for work. Skyrocketing fuel costs and inflation are taking more out of employee paychecks, too.
- More workers are commuting from father away due, in part, to the lack of affordable housing.
- Average commuting costs were up 34% to nearly $3,000 in 2022.
- Daily commute times for U.S. workers on average are up to an hour long (55 minutes).
Shared commute solutions like carpooling give employers a competitive edge to retain and attract employees, especially on-site shift workers that can’t use transit or other options.
