Companies Try to Change Employees’ Behavior Toward Using Car Pooling, Mass Transit, Shuttles, & Buses Rising gasoline prices are creating a spike in demand for company-subsidized transportation programs. Companies are big on breaking the car addiction because doing so raises productivity, amps morale, and delivers much lusted-after green credibility. Some companies are aiming for zero car status, with all of their employees arriving and leaving work in a company shuttle. 1. Which of the forces for change are causing organizations such as Safeco and Microsoft to try and change employees’ views about driving to work? Explain. Suggested Answer: Market changes and social and political forces are definitely driving organizations to try and change employees’ views about driving to work. Rising fuel prices as well as concerns for a company’s carbon footprint are the key drivers. Also, internal forces such as employee productivity may also cause an organization to urge employee to use shuttles instead of driving, as employees will not be as tired when using a shuttle instead of driving.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
