My new "commute"

WSP has been playing its part in flattening the COVID-19 curve, having transitioned to remote based working in early March.

From a technological perspective, things have been reasonably straightforward. With an existing VPN connection and most employees already using laptops, the transition has been relatively seamless. In addition to the IT department, the Learning and Development team have played an important role in ensuring all employees have access to information and resources to continue working safely and efficiently from home.

On a more personal note, I have noticed both benefits and challenges due to the change in my office location. While I have enjoyed the flexibility associated with WFH, I have noticed without my commute the lines between work and home life have become a little blurry. To maintain the important separation between time devoted to work and time devoted to me I have somewhat created my own “commute” before and/or after work. Lately, this has been a walk to the local café or to the beach, however with the weather lately it looks like I’ll have to start becoming a little more creative!

WSP Launches Travel Survey

This story is related to Promote active travel

WSP is committed to supporting “active” modes of transport - including walking, cycling, and public transport.

In addition to reducing transport’s impact on the environment, WSP recognises that having more people using these forms of transport helps maintain the mental and physical health of our employees, leading to a happier, healthier workforce.

Earlier this month, WSP's Your Move coordinators launched the 2019 travel survey. The purpose of the survey is to find out more about the commuting habits of employees in the Perth office, and what barriers/opportunities exist for changing travel behaviour.

Yesterday, over 60 WSP Perth staff and family members participated in the 2019 HBF Run for a Reason.

In addition to raising much needed funds for charity, the event reminded our employees how running, walking and jogging can be a fun and effective way of combining fitness and transport!

Congratulations to the City of Subiaco for putting on a very well organised (and attended) event. A great initiative to get more people cycling to/from work.
