If employers were to recognize commutes as part of standard working hours, they might be less likely to hire people who lived farther away from the office.
The pandemic era has underscored the need for companies to overhaul their conceptions of the role that work plays in employees’ lives.
Allow employees to count the commute as part of their work day instead
This might shorten employees' time in the office to just six or seven hours a day.
If companies find the idea of sacrificing extra hours of work to be unacceptable, they should reflect on why they’re so comfortable asking employees to give up the same amount of time from their own days.
Commutes are not strictly defined as working hours, but there are examples of policies that show there's room for interpretation.
The European Union passed a law in 2016 ruling that if companies require workers to drive around visiting customers or clients, they must pay workers for commute time, and count it toward the 48 hours at which the EU caps the workweek.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
