Commutes Are Killing Small Businesses

A recent, in-depth study conducted by researchers in the UK confirmed every commuter’s worst fear – the long drive to work is not only impacting job performance, but the health and happiness of you and your employees.
Though a UK study, the results speak to life in modern cities across the world. Researchers analyzed data from a government-run questionnaire called the UK Household Longitudinal Study, a survey that quizzes adult members of 40,000 households throughout the UK. Using questionnaire data collected between 2009 and 2016, the results are undisputed. Because they exhaust your body; take up so much time during the day; and can lead to becoming overweight – your productivity at work is drastically reduced. In fact, long commutes can be the equivalent of taking a 19% pay cut. For business owners, that means your company is not reaching its maximum potential.

But, what to do? On the surface, this seems like one of those cases where ignorance is bliss. For most people, it’s impossible to upend their lives just to spend less time on the road. The answer, however, may lie with exercise.
