Engaging Employees in Sustainability Efforts
December 18, 2009 – Work Closer. Live Greener.

“Today, employees want to work for organizations that reflect their values, and respect their concerns about environmental and social responsibility (ESR). The days of “The Organization Man” are long gone. If companies want to retain the best and brightest employees, they must consider how to better align their values and interests with their employees. And ESR is not just for tree-huggers anymore. As humanity faces the global impact of climate change and the growing loss of our natural resources, individuals are looking to their own lives to see how they can make a difference, at home and at work.”

Let us help you to involve your employees in a greener lifestyle in and out of the workplace.

Commuting is Bad for Your Health
December 10, 2009 – Work Closer. Live Healthy.

“Besides being a daily grind that takes time away from family, a long commute can be harmful to your health. Researchers have found that hours spent behind the wheel raise blood pressure and cause workers to get sick and stay home more often. Commuters have lower thresholds for frustration at work, suffer more headaches and chest pains, and more often display negative moods at home in the evenings.”

Commuter Swap can get you out of traffic and into a more healthy lifestyle, so you have more time for the things that really matter.
