Eveready Company is the largest employer in the private sector. It has 43,500 employees and this as affected the transport sector immensely. Traffic jams have been common issues in the past. This report analyses data collected from the employees on their perception and views on solutions to this issue. The data collected is analyzed below and possible solutions proposed. The data are grouped into four figures.
Figure 1: Employees’ Carpool Habits
Figure 2: Use of Public Transportation
Figure 3: Factors that would encourage employees use public sectors more frequently
Figure 4: Does the nature of your job allow telecommuting?
Solution 1 Use of subsided bus shuttles.
Figure 1 shows that 64% of the employees do not carpool. This shows that a bigger percentage of the employees do not share their cars. These people are ready to use public means of transport as shown in figure 3. Subsidization of the fares, improvement of cleanliness and reduce in commute times can greatly encourage the employees to use the public transportation. The company should sign an agreement with the competitive shuttle companies that are approaching it. The terms of the agreement should favor the company and the employees. The company should subsidize the cost and on the other hand the shuttle company should guarantee punctuality, cleanliness and safety of the workers.
Solution 2 Allow Telecommuting for some employee
According to figure 4, 57% of the employees can telecommute at one time or the other during the week. The company should allow some workers to telecommute. This will save the metropolitan the heavy traffic jam. This solution is logical since the output of the company will not be affected. This move should be accompanied with regulative measure to ensure than some employees do not evade doing their duties.
The above report is an indication that the problem of traffic jam can be solved in our metropolitan area if the company takes up the initiative. Telecommuting and encouraging the employees to use the shuttles are the answers to the traffic issue. Kindly consider inviting me to discuss the above recommendations.
