Employer resources: Travel planning for businesses
We can assist local businesses, and companies relocating to East Tamaki by creating travel plans for employees.
Travel planning for employees can help to improve reliability, ease apprehensions over changes to their daily commute, and demonstrates a commitment to employee satisfaction.
If you want to stay ahead in business, it's time to go electric. Reduce the running costs of your business vehicles and reduce your carbon emissions from transport by 80%.
The Government has an electric vehicle programme to accelerate both domestic and business uptake.
Cycling is a great fleet option for your business. Auckland Transport gives you the opportunity to trial the world’s lightest electric bikes. Electric bikes, or e-bikes, are bicycles with a small electric motor to assist the rider's pedal-power and they are increasing in popularity and number.
E-bikes have many advantages:
- Allow every employee to conquer the hills of Auckland without breaking a sweat.
- Rechargeable batteries that provide a low cost alternative to fleet vehicles and taxis
- Reduced fleet car parking requirements.
- They are clean and green.
We can arrange a free introductory workshop for your staff and discounted hire for a trial period.
Have you considered Teleworking?
Teleworking can help your business cut costs, add value and increase productivity. By giving your employees the flexibility to work from home or at another location away from the main office, you can significantly improve your bottom line.
Teleworking is used by all types of business in New Zealand and is most suited to staff who use information and communications technology, as it usually needs a connection to your workplace IT system. Teleworking doesn't have to be a permanent work arrangement, or used every day. Even one or two days a week could be a great choice for your business.
How do I maintain business productivity?
Studies show that people who work from home are more productive than their office counterparts. They have fewer interruptions, manage their time better and often work longer hours due to time saved from the daily commute. The key is to focus on outcomes and results. Supervisors and teleworkers just need to be clear about job expectations.
Is teleworking suitable for all employees?
Telework is not for everyone and not everyone wants it. Offering the opportunity to telework is a management option not a universal employee benefit. Supervisors may select employees who have the right tasks, abilities and circumstances.
Is teleworking suitable for my business?
Jobs are really just a collection of tasks. Some tasks may need to be done at the office, so the amount of telework an employee can do will depend on how many of their tasks can be done away from the office. Teleworking may not suit all business environments.
