One of the biggest concerns for potential EV owners—the availability of charging stations away from their home—can in some cases be most effectively addressed by employers. Recognizing that employees appreciate sustainable business practices and that EVs are on the rise, ad agency Team Detroit has installed EV charging stations at their Dearborn headquarters.
As reported by Media Post, Team Detroit SVP of Global Production Operations Kristen Schweitzer said “We’re delighted to be able to offer vehicle charging, especially as electric vehicle ownership grows in popularity. By giving employees a place to plug in we hope that driving an EV can now become an option for more people.”
Making access to EV ownership easier is a cool perk for employees, especially at a business named after the Motor City. Given that work is the perfect time to charge up your EV, it would make sense for more employers to offer charging stations at work as an added perk and a way to promote EV production in Michigan’s economy. Hopefully, this trend will catch on.
