As the world emerges from coronavirus-related 'shelter in place' orders, many companies will need to resume business meetings, travel, and small events. But most Americans still have many reservations about whether such activities are safe. How can you help make them safer for you and your employees? Consider hiring a car service as a healthy solution. Why? Here are a few key benefits.
1. You Know the Service
If you have to rely on drivers and other people's vehicles to get your employees from Point A to Point B, don't you want someone you know will take good precautions? When you contract with a designated car service, you can have confidence in their procedures — something you can't get from ride sharing or cabs.
2. Your Employees Avoid Transit
Mass transit has its place, but a pandemic or its subsequent outbreaks is not that place. If your employees regularly have to travel by bus, train, subway, or light rail service, they can expose your entire workplace to the coronavirus. You also risk having key employees being exposed and having to self-isolate or getting too sick to work. A private car reduces those exposure risks.
3. Staff Can Avoid Stations and Airports
Some business travel is done over long distances and can't be avoided. But smaller trips can often be made on the road rather than through air or train travel. Airports, train stations, and the vehicles themselves are likely to be more crowded than is safe. If possible, consider a single hired SUV or van to take your team to a nearby city or state when business necessitates it.
4. You Work With the Same Individuals
The more people each employee interacts with, the greater their risk of exposure. A contract executive car service means you are interacting with only a select few drivers over and over again.
5. Employees Are Less Worried
Your employees will likely be nervous about various public aspects of their work until the coronavirus has been completely controlled. In the meantime, the company can reduce stress by arranging for safe travel. Stressed employees won't be trying to make their own arrangements, worried about using public transport, or concerned with the cost of being safe. Instead, they can focus on their work representing your business.
Any company can benefit from the added protection offered by a professional car service. And during the volatile months ahead, having your plan in place early will ensure that your business is as free of interruptions as possible. Learn more by meeting with a quality car service in your area today.
