25% Of People Have Quit A Job Because Of A Bad Commute

This survey of commuters has found that 25% of workers have quit a job because of a bad commute.

The survey titled ‘U.S. Workers Hit the Road” comes from global staffing firm, Robert Half.

Thirty-nine percent of professionals reported that while their travel to and from their workplace has improved in the last five years, 22 percent say their trip has actually gotten worse.

What it comes down to for many is that it is a big chunk of one’s life sitting in a car.

Of those who were unhappy with their commutes, 60 percent said that their companies weren’t taking steps to relieve the burden placed on employees by a bad commute.

Younger people were more likely than their older counterparts to leave a job due to a negative commute.

Some suggestions from the survey is to let employees have a more flexible schedule to offset peak traffic or for some to work some of the time from home.
