The benefits of joining Smart Commute are many. Our programs can help you:

  • Become a more attractive workplace for potential recruits: in today’s competitive HR market, a company that provides its employees with flexibility and access to commuter options is seen as a more attractive workplace. Similarly, property managers who offer Smart Commute programs are more attractive when it comes to recruiting and retaining tenants.
  • Increase employee retention: studies suggest that employees who are satisfied with their commute are 10% more likely to remain with an employer, which leads to savings for your company. Recruiting and training a new employee can cost between 50% and 150% of an annual salary.
  • Increase employee productivity: employees who use smart alternatives for their commute to work are more likely to arrive on time and be less stressed than those who drive alone.
    Reduce parking requirements: less demand for employee parking will free up spots for customers and visitors and can potentially lead to reduce your need for parking.
  • Public Profile: companies and property managers can strengthen greening programs, improve their visibility and be seen as champions of sustainability by implementing Smart Commute programs.
  • Better air quality: Smart Commute takes cars off the road, reduces smog causing emissions and helps reduce the emissions which contribute to climate change.
  • Less congestion: Fewer cars means less congestion – a significant concern in Toronto that causes billions of dollars in economic impact.
