Because the simplest commute is to stay home.

Office culture is changing.

In recent years, technology and the rise of a flexible workplace culture has spurred a major increase in remote work. Beyond 100% telecommuting, many employers offer remote work policies that allow employees to work from home anywhere from 1-3 days a week.

With the rise of coronavirus in recent months, however, a radical shift has occurred as many employers have been forced to rapidly adopt new telework policies and technologies. Although we may not know what the future holds, developing airtight long-term telework policies can serve as a foundation to the business continuity plans that will keep your organization resilient.

At RideshareKC, we hope to make the transition to remote work smoother through the crisis and beyond.

Remote work works

Working from home benefits both workers and their employers, as happier employees are more dedicated and productive employees. As workplaces save on real estate and maintenance costs and employees cut down on transportation spending, everybody wins with remote work.
