As the average American commute is growing longer and more stressful, it’s crucial for employers and HR professionals to keep pace with the rapidly changing mobility landscape. We know well that the commute’s impact extends far beyond simple frustration behind the wheel, both for commuters and the companies that employ them. But in today’s world, where the commute is the third-largest driver of voluntary attrition at companies, showing commitment to your employee experience by dramatically improving their daily commute isn’t just an HR benefit–it’s our new business imperative. 

Last month we unveiled the results of our first-annual The State of the American Commute report, which offers key insights and a better understanding of the impact of lengthening commutes on American workers’ physical, financial, and emotional well-being. The report, which highlights how commuting leads to lower productivity, higher costs, longer workdays, and different lifestyle choices, is based on a Scoop survey of more than 7,000 workers in 16 major metropolitan regions across the United States.

Our findings highlight that organizations face the opportunity to take action and become aware and sensitive to the pains, challenges, and opportunities associated with employees’ commutes.
