Introducing Environmentally Friendly Travel for Employee Sustainability Programs

Employee sustainability programs are designed to engage employees in embracing sustainable options in the work place. Many companies are using their employee sustainability programs to encourage staff to find alternative ways to get to and from work that are environmentally friendly. Here are a few options you can use to encourage your team to take the greener route to work each day.

Car Pooling
Car pooling is an environmentally friendly option as it cuts down on the amount of cars driving to and from your location each day. The easiest way to do this is to have a survey drawn up that asks employees to indicate the closest major intersection to their home. You can then collect and sort the information and find out how many groups of 4 – 6 you can come up with and then work your way down to smaller groups as required. Not all staff members will be enthused to participate in this program, but you can remind staff they can save on gas, as well as wear and tear on their vehicle. Offer some numbers to demonstrate how effective the savings will be compared to paying each week on their own. For the simplest answer to gas consumption you can advise staff to have a weekly or daily schedule so everyone involved has equal sharing of the burden of driving, gas and wear and tear on their cars.

Public Transit
You can also work a deal with your local public transit and see if you can sell tickets or passes at the office. You may be surprised at the deal you can get and it can be provided to staff as a deduction from their pay or you can simply sell them at reception. Public transit is the most economical and environmentally friendly way to travel and can reduce costs in car insurance, gas and care for employee cars.

Benefits of Travel Options
Employee sustainability programs that include travel options for employees have many benefits including:

  • Conservation of energy
  • Reduction of emissions
  • Reduced parking challenges
  • Reduction in employee costs to travel to and from work

Considering offering environmentally friendly travel options for staff is a perfect way to enhance your employee sustainability programs.
