Commute times rank as a top concern among employees when considering a job offer, according to feedback gathered from Robert Half’s recruiters.

“Good managers keep a constant gauge on team morale,” said Josh Howarth, district president for Robert Half. “You should continually talk to employees about their commutes to identify pain points and possible workarounds. Every organization is different, and no single magic bullet can solve all commuting problems.”
