So, you’re thinking about implementing a remote workforce? That’s smart… like, saving-thousands-of-dollars smart. With transportation and car-related expenses—on average—your employees are spending a thousand dollars a month in gas, insurance, and vehicle maintenance. When you consider the stress that commuting presents, staffing remotely becomes a major investment in their wellbeing.
