Whether as part of their sustainability strategy, mobility management plan or employee benefits package, providing the workforce with public transport tickets has become a must for many companies.

Studies have found that employees want more flexibility when it comes to their mobility: whether it is the type of public transport they use, the route they take or when they travel. The pandemic has accelerated the trend towards greater workplace flexibility. In addition to offering new working time models, many companies now give their employees the option of working remotely, either from home or elsewhere This makes it easier for workers to reconcile the demands of a busy working day with their individual needs.
Personal preferences and values also play an important role in mobility choices and behaviour. A growing number of people are turning to more sustainable transport options. By providing their employees with a mobility budget, companies are doing their bit to hasten the shift to environmentally friendly modes of transport. Also, it is important to remember that mobility is a key component of any sustainability strategy. The FAIRTIQ employee mobility budget helps companies honour their commitment to the environment and climate protection in a very tangible way while offering their employees an attractive and very practical perk.
