Typical commuting expectations
When searching for a new job, what’s important to you? Salary? Company culture? Role responsibilities? Whether you’ve considered it yet or not, when weighing up job offers, the commute you could be undertaking on a daily basis is extremely important.
A “bad” commute can have a negative impact on mental health, overall job satisfaction and can leave you out of pocket. According to research conducted by the University of West England, just a 20-minute increase in commute time is as bad as a 19% per pay cut for job satisfaction.
But what commute is reasonable and what is not? There is a number of factors to take into account when working out the pros and cons of whether a certain commute works for you.
It’s important to stay in contact with your new hire/s before their start date. A lot can happen in their notice period, they might accept an offer with another company or may decide to stay in their current role. Therefore, a pre-boarding process is important to ensure your new employee feels like part of your team before they even arrive on day one.
