Best practices for successful commute programs!
Successful programs meet employee needs, are appropriate to the work location and become part of the corporate culture. That said, there are a few common - and critical – components, including:
- An active and informed Employee Transportation Coordinator (you!)
- Incentives or Subsidies for non-drive alone commuting
- Guaranteed Ride Home
- Parking Management
