When employees don’t have to commute, they work

A new report by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that Australian’s save an average of 78 minutes by not commuting each day.

It found that, from that time save, employees dedicated:

  • 40% to primary and secondary job tasks
  • 34% to leisure
  • 11% to caregiving

Add to this this the fact that cutting out a commute makes disruptions like traffic and train delays irrelevant —that’s a massive boost to productivity.

And, more importantly, employees are better rested and more connected with their loved ones.

It’s a win-win-win!
