The Distributed Office Model: A Commute-Based Approach to a Safe Return to Work
September 29, 2020
COVID-19 will have a lasting impact on the workplace and commuting. If companies, municipalities, and commercial real estate don’t adapt now they will face a stark reality once offices reopen: a dramatic increase in SOV commuters without the necessary parking infrastructure to handle them. What does this mean for you and your commuting ecosystem? Do you have a plan to address excess parking demand if all of your employees drive alone to work once they return? As companies rethink workplace strategies and what the office looks like moving forward, flexibility for employees is the common thread. A safe and effective future leverages a combination of remote work and a distributed hub and spoke model. A distributed office model can save companies millions of dollars annually in parking and TDM benefits, while simultaneously reducing the time and carbon burden felt by commuters and their community. Optimizing this process relies on taking a commute-based approach and leveraging the 15-minute commute strategy. This webinar will explore how distributed offices can lead to a safer workplace and dive deeper into how the 15-minute commute strategy can help you create the best distribution.
The fresh-start effect and a personal touch are key to influencing a commuter's choices. By combining them and creating new fresh-starts we may be able to break through strong commuting habits and reduce the number of cars on the road.
