SPEND LESS TIME COMMUTING BY FINDING A JOB CLOSER TO YOUR HOME

When addressing the idea of work-life balance, we notice that the main objective remains maximizing the amount of free time of worker has left outside of their regular business hours. Despite the numerous possibilities an employer may offer with regards to this balance, one important factor is often neglected by workers themselves: the amount of time spent commuting to work each day.

This circumstance particularly affects workers living in dense urban areas, where traffic and the available means of transportation may impact daily travel times. In fact, several factors come into play to complicate workers’ daily commute to their workplace:

  • Traffic jams caused by heavy traffic;
  • Traffic accidents;
  • Never-ending construction;
  • Detours;
  • Public transit failures and delays;
  • Slowdowns caused by weather conditions;
  • Etc.

Not only can these factors result in constant uncertainty regarding the length of the commute to and from work, but they also generate significant stress in commuters. Consequently, many workers spend an increasing amount of time travelling.

Of course, a person is free to move closer to their workplace, but it is often easier to change jobs than to change houses, neighbourhoods, or cities. The neighbourhoods surrounding workplaces are not usually well-adapted to family life or tranquillity. Furthermore, other factors may render a move closer to a job more difficult, such as other family members’ places of work or study, prices that vary from one district to another, and the level of services offered in certain areas (schools, daycares, hospitals, parks, shops, etc.).

For this reason, ComparJobs has chosen to incorporate the “travel time and distance” factor when calculating a worker's compatibility with a job. You can then target jobs located closer to our home in order to minimize our daily commute. It's up to you to decide the maximum distance you’d be willing to travel to your next job, and we’ll indicate whether the posted jobs that interest you meet your demands.
