Every time we get into a car to commute to work there is a risk of being involved in an accident.
The physical and physiological toll of having to commute is very well documented, for example, see this recent NYT’s piece: Stuck and Stressed: The Health Costs of Traffic — The physical and psychological toll of brutal commutes can be considerable.
It’s 2019, we have the technology and know-how to allow almost ALL knowledge workers to work from anywhere or flexibly ending these dangerous, soul destroying, carbon omitting daily commutes!
If you have not done so already make it your goal in 2020 to design and deploy an “office in the cloud” that allows your team to be able to work flexibly and remotely. They will thank you with their loyalty and increased productivity!
