-- Miami, San Diego and Austin employees are most stressed over traveling to the office, according to Robert Half study

-- Professionals in Washington, D.C.; New York; and Houston cite the longest trips

MENLO PARK, Calif., Nov. 5, 2019/PRNewswire / -- Are employees stressed out before they even arrive to the office? In a new survey from global staffing firm Robert Half, half of professionals (50%) said traveling to and from work is stressful.

In addition, 45% of respondents lamented that their trip to the office is too long, up from 30% in a similar 2017 survey. Professionals said they spend an average of 48.37 minutes commuting each day, and nearly one in five (19%) stated their travel time exceeds one hour.

Additional findings:

  • Among the 28 U.S. cities in the survey, respondents in Miami, San Diegoand Austinare the most stressed about their trip to and from the office.
  • Men and workers ages 25 to 40 have the highest levels of stress about traveling to work.
  • Los Angeles(65%), Austinand Miami(62% each) have the most professionals who feel their commute is too long.
  • More workers ages 25 to 40 (54%) and men (52%) described their trips as too lengthy.
  • Washington, D.C.(65.84 minutes); New York(60.80 minutes); and Houston(59.15 minutes) professionals reported the longest travel times.
  • In a separate survey, senior managers said their company offers flexible scheduling to avoid peak traffic times (43%) and telecommuting (40%) to help alleviate employees' stressful trips.

'When workers have difficult commutes into the office, their engagement and productivity can suffer the rest of the day. This may affect staff satisfaction and retention in the long run,' said Paul McDonald, senior executive director for Robert Half. 'With the current employment environment favoring job seekers, organizations can't afford to ignore the issue and lose their best team members to other opportunities.'

McDonald added, 'There's a business case for helping employees maximize their time and minimize stress by offering perks like flexible schedules and telecommuting options when possible. To stay competitive, some companies also provide creative resources for carpooling, public transportation, parking and fuel.'
