How to boost your team’s productivity & morale with one simple change

Published: 27th March 2024

Here at National Express Transport Solutions we’re all about getting the most out of your day, especially when it comes to your team and their productivity. By making one simple change to their daily routine you can boost their morale and their productivity at the same time. 

All you need to do is switch to a Staff Shuttle Service. Yes, it’s that simple. By utilising a Staff Shuttle Service it’s been proven that teams are more productive and make better use of their commuting time.

Utilise your employee’s commute

By introducing a Staff Shuttle Service to your team’s daily routine, you’re telling them that you’re invested in them. You’re also encouraging them to bond as a team and make the most of their time together. More time together = more time to be productive. This then leads to better team morale before the working day has even begun.

And it’s not just that time before work that Staff Shuttles can benefit your team. How many times have you left work late because of a meeting overrun? When your team commutes together those meetings can continue whilst on the move. There’s no need to miss your lift home when you’re travelling together, meaning those important meetings can be finished.

Reducing the number of vehicles on the road

Another benefit to using Staff Shuttles is your commitment to reducing the number of vehicles on the road.

According to a 2022 government survey (published in 2023) 68% of respondents used a car to commute to their place of work. 

If you say that those 68% of respondents (500 people) all worked for the same company and they all took individual cars to work, then by utilising a Staff Shuttle Service vehicles on the road could be reduced from 340 to just 11 coaches**. That’s a 96.7% decrease in vehicles on the road.

You can (finally!) hit those sustainability targets

We know it can be difficult to hit your company targets for sustainability but trust us when we say Staff Shuttles is an easy way to get started. Reducing the number of private vehicles your employees are using on their daily commute helps your company to hit its sustainability targets by reducing the number of CO2 emissions produced on the daily commute.

Save money for both your employees AND your business

There’s been a lot of talk about vehicles but we understand that not everyone drives to work. Some take the train and some take the tube. But all of these methods of transportation costs your employees money and we all want to save money right?

By using a Staff Shuttle Service your employee saves money on their commute by reducing their petrol consumption or annual train fare and the business saves money by cutting back on land for car parking space. It’s a winner for both sides.
