Commuting stress forces companies to develop mobility solutions
Three-quarters of companies indicate that their employees experience stress as a result of commuting. That is the conclusion of a Hudson mobility survey of 122 Belgian companies, which was made public on Wednesday. It is the reason why companies and organizations are increasingly developing their own mobility strategies or customized mobility solutions to deal with the mobility problems faced by their employees.
For example, 38% of the companies surveyed are already working intensively on the mobility issue, and 46% say they are making additional efforts on an ad hoc basis in addition to the legal obligations.
It is striking that 82% of the organizations are committed to sustainable alternatives for their employees. The majority focuses on encouraging the use of bicycles (bicycle storage, showers, bicycle leasing, bicycle reimbursement) and public transport.
Mobility budget is popular
Approximately one-third of the companies also encourage organized public transport by using car-pooling or company buses. More than half of the organizations surveyed indicated that they would like to introduce the mobility budget within three years, while 18% reported that they would like to do so within five years.
By 2021, one-fifth of the companies want to reduce the CO2 emissions of the cars in their fleets to 100 g/km. By 2024, one-third (or 34%) event intends to switch to a fully electric fleet.
