Why Workplace Charging?

Health insurance packages, parental leave, napping pods, kombucha on tap and bike storage weren’t common amenities traditionally offered by employers, but many of these have become standard amenities.  But when will workplace charging be added as a common feature? Workplace charging is an enormous benefit for both employees and employers. Providing access to charging at the workplace can show an organization’s commitment to sustainability, and reduce range anxiety among potential adopters.
