Let’s be frank – nobody ever says they enjoy commuting.
That daily grind to and from work can be frustrating, time-consuming and harmful to health for both the employee and the business.
UK workers suffer some of the longest daily commutes in the world and recent research has shown that the hours spent travelling can have a massive negative impact.
A study of more than 34,000 workers across all UK industries found those who commuted to work in under half an hour gained an additional seven days’ worth of productive time each year, compared to those with a commute of an hour or more.
Employers who can offer flexible or staggered start times are reaping the benefits of happier, more engaged staff – as well as helping to reduce fuel bills and create a healthier work-life balance for their workforce.
For those travelling through the Midlands, the quickest way to make a difference for the past 15 years has been to use the M6toll, avoiding the congested M6 motorway and other local routes.
We believe our road represents an easier, stress-free driving experience.
Less congestion makes for a safer drive. High quality and well-maintained roads make for a more reliable journey. And with the outside environment designed to be as eco-friendly as possible, you’ll be seeing green not red.
Now it is even easier for businesses to encourage their staff to use the M6toll, with the introduction of Hopper£35, a new TAG trial which offers commuters hopping on or off at junctions T4, T5 or T6 a weekly pass for just £35 per week.
Not only will you – and your business – benefit from a happier, more energised workforce, your staff will enjoy all the benefits that come with using the M6toll.
Best of all, as Hopper£35 can be used all week they’ll benefit whether they’re using the M6toll for their daily commute to work, visiting friends at the weekend or heading off on a family adventure.
