Southern Vectis Case Study
Southern Vectis, a major employer on the Island, worked with the Connect2Work programme to develop a Workplace Travel Plan. The Travel Plan consisted of a staff survey and a site audit to examine the opportunities and challenges faced by the organisation. A set of recommendations were provided which set out how Southern Vectis can enable its staff to travel more sustainably for commuting and for business travel.
Some of the reasons Southern Vectis took the opportunity to develop it’s Travel Plan included:
Car parking issues at its main site and depots
To encourage employees to become more active and make use of the transport services it currently provides.
To increase onsite facilities to make sustainable transport options easier for staff.
To support the organisation’s ongoing commitment to carbon emissions reduction whilst contributing to staff wellbeing.
