How Remote Workers Are Helping to Save The Planet
Posted by Insightlink on 07/05/19
Research collected by Instant Offices revealed US employees working from home prevent the emission of 3.6 million tons of commuting-related greenhouse gasses every year. That’s equivalented to planting 91 million trees!
By allowing more employees to work from home or telecommute more often, businesses across the nation can rapidly become more energy efficient and reap the rewards that come with introducing flexible working in the workplace. With this in mind, Instant Offices provides a breakdown of why employers in the US should consider implementing the idea of flexible working seriously.
Compelling statistics by FlexJobs has shown remote working has become a more sustainable way of working that benefits both employer and employee and creates a huge positive impact on the environment.
Here are some of the key stats that show why flexible working could be the solution to solving problems with work-life balance, employee retention, and productivity:
• Commuting is part of the second-largest source of US greenhouse gas emissions; daily transport to and from work is a significant contributor to environmental pollution. Passenger cars are one of the biggest culprits.
Even though workers in the U.S. tend to work longer hours on average than their continental counterparts, Huffington Post reported some employers in the states also recognise the benefits of a four-day working week.
A smaller software company in San Francisco has created a four-day week model, allowing employees to choose one extra day off a week. Interestingly, Wednesday is the most popular choice, as many workers find a mid-week break leaves them refreshed to tackle their creative and technical tasks for the rest of the week.
Tips for a More Energy-Conscious Office
• Electricity: Switching to energy-saving light bulbs throughout the building, and using timers for overnight and external lighting, can add up to substantial energy bill savings.
