Virtual Think Tank Series
Why the Employee Commute is an HR Imperative for Every Healthcare Employer
Wednesday, October 21, 2020 • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (EDT)
The 16 million essential healthcare workers in the United States are heroes in today’s COVID-19 landscape. Each day that they leave the safety of their homes to travel to their workplace, they are assuming exposure risks for themselves and for their families.
These workers face enough risk as it is–their commute to and from the workplace should be the least of their worries. But as transit budgets are slashed and more commuters, especially the 1-in-3 Americans without access to a personal vehicle, are left stranded, many of today’s essential healthcare workers and admin staff face a grueling commute. At the same time, more hospital facilities managers face new challenges to manage the problems associated with the rising number of single-occupancy vehicles in their parking lots.
How can healthcare and hospital employers ensure a safe and equitable commute for all employees while helping mitigate common facilities challenges?
In this interactive Virtual Think Tank led by Scoop Technologies, the largest enterprise carpooling solution in the United States, hospital and health system HR executives will explore:
- The commute challenges faced by healthcare workers across the United States
- Why addressing the employee commute can help solve today’s healthcare HR challenges
- Why employers like Swedish Health Services and Oregon Health & Science University trust two-person carpools with enforceable health and safety protocols to provide door-to-door commutes to their employees
