More reasons to change
- Efficiency savings: The Royal Bank of Scotland saved £70k per annum on travel expenses after investing in teleconferencing facilities as part of their travel plan.
- Healthier and more productive workforce: The British Medical Association has stated that 40 minutes of physical activity per week can reduce workplace absenteeism by 50%. Travelling actively to work reduces stress and the risk of chronic disease, improves staff well-being and therefore increases productivity.
- Improved corporate, social responsibility (CSR): By encouraging sustainable and physically active travel modes, your business portrays a distinct message of sustainability which clearly demonstrates your commitment to CSR.
- Reduced staff-turnover and improved customer experience: By increasing accessibility to the workplace and alleviating pressure on parking facilities, you improve the recruitment range and retention rate of employees, and make it easier for customers to access your site.
- Reduce carbon emissions: You can use travel planning activities as evidence towards achieving or maintaining ISO 14001 environment standard accreditation. Such accreditation could also lead to greater business opportunities.
- Business travel: Encouraging staff to travel in a more sustainable way makes good business sense. Through reduced risk of accidents, greater staff time utilisation (if staff were able to work whilst travelling).
