More wages be­ing spent on daily com­mute

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A SUR­VEY claims two thirds of peo­ple are spend­ing more than 5% of their salary on com­mut­ing.

Of­fice space provider Re­gus sur­veyed over 4,000 se­nior busi­ness peo­ple across the UK and found that the av­er­age pro­por­tion of pay spent on com­mut­ing was 4% – a rise from 3% in 2010 – but in Uxbridge it is 1% higher. For 15% of re­spon­dents the daily com­mute costs them over a tenth of their monthly pay packet. Re­gus UK CEO Richard Mor­ris said: “Busi­nesses that want to re­tain and at­tract top tal­ent can­not fail to ad­dress this is­sue. Flex­i­ble work­ing can pro­vide a so­lu­tion. Staff that spend less time on crowded trains have more time to ap­ply them­selves to the job in hand.”
