Companies all over the Grand Traverse area are discovering that by making it easier for staff to carpool, bus, bike or walk to work, they can become better neighbors, keep their workplace healthy, and boost their bottom lines.
Five reasons you should consider commuter incentives for your business?
1. To boost your bottom line:
You can avoid major parking expenses by offering incentives to carpool, bike, and bus to work. You can also trim payroll taxes by allowing employees to use pre-tax dollars for transit through the Commuter Tax Benefit.
2. To free up parking for your customers:
Let’s face it: Everyone wants to park right by the door. Smart business owners keep those spaces open for their most important fans. You don’t want your staff taking up valuable spaces. Free up those spots by encouraging your employees to leave their cars at home.
3. To attract and retain healthy and productive employees:
One reason Google Ann Arbor pays its employees to leave their cars at home: to promote healthy lifestyles for their employees.
4. To be a good neighbor:
Are neighborhood groups concerned about your expansion plans? Be proactive. Commit to maintaining a small traffic footprint while expanding your services.
5. To reduce your energy footprint:
Your energy footprint doesn’t end at the door. The amount of energy your staff consumes as they get to work has a big impact on your neighborhood’s air quality. Explore how you can lower your footprint.
