With gas prices jumping over $3 a gallon, employees with long commutes may be thinking about working closer to home. Ease their pain by: 1) Talking with the top brass about allowing certain employees to telecommute on some days. 2) Creating a car-pooling bulletin board (or online version) and reserve desirable parking space for car-poolers. 3) Offer tax-advantaged mass transit subsidies (see www.commuterchoice.gov for details). 4) Point employees to cost-saving Web sites, such as www.fuelcostcalculator.com and www.gasbuddy.com, which lists the best and worst gas prices in your region.
