Remote Work

If you want to make a difference in the world, think about your daily work routine and how your actions impact the environment.

Daily transportation and business activities contribute a significant portion to top global concerns such as greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, fossil fuel reliance and air pollution. Leaders and concerned citizens seek ways to reduce impacts associated with vehicles and office work. One solution is to remove cars from the road by offering employees a remote work option. The idea is that employees who telecommute drive less, consume less energy, and create less office-related waste.


If you want to make a significant impact on the environment and your life, consider the benefits of telecommuting:

  • Kick the daily commute to the curb and earn your time back
  • Achieve better work-life balance and spend more time with family
  • Focus better on tasks with fewer disruptions
  • Reduce environmental impacts associated with transportation
  • Avoid a long commute, which is more environmentally friendly and saves valuable personal time
  • Save on fuel or transit costs
  • Decrease typical office waste, such as paper and plastic waste
  • Reduce global energy and resource consumption

By not driving to and from work every day, you dramatically shift the scales of consumption, waste, and pollution. Why not do what you love and reduce your impacts at the same time? 


The progress of technology has helped accommodate the telework option. Wireless devices, web applications, and collaboration tools, such as online meeting software, make it easier to interact with managers and colleagues when you're not in the office.

Remote work is quickly becoming an indispensable commuter benefits program asset for employers seeking to attract, hire, and retain employees in today‚Äôs competitive workforce.

The ability to work remotely gives selected employees the option of working off-site on a full-time, part-time, or temporary basis. By encouraging employees to perform some or all their duties without commuting to the office, companies can reduce cost while creating a flexible workplace.


Flexible scheduling is a commuter benefit that allows a shift in working hours, where employees can complete tasks outside of core business hours. With a flexible schedule, an employee still works their full day, but scheduled start and end times may vary. Flex scheduling allows for an employee to reduce a workweek in some way. Allowing employees to have a flexible schedule helps reduce commute stress and time while increasing productivity by avoiding peak commute hours.


Remote work has become an increasingly attractive business strategy as employers look for ways to respond to workplace trends and changing business needs. Businesses that offer a remote work option demonstrate a commitment to employees for work-life balance.


  • Decrease employee recruitment and training cost
  • Maintain business continuity
  • Improve employee effectiveness, engagement and increase work/life balance
  • To foster a "green" workplace culture and benefit the environment
  • To encourage productivity and reduce expenses associated with lost time due to disruptions.
