The results of the survey pointed to a sharp increase in the number of commuter assignments with 35 percent of respondents noting a modest to significant increase over their 2012 numbers. Slightly more than half of companies report the number remained the same in 2013, while only 13 percent reported a decrease. While the number of commuters appears to be on the rise, only 28 percent of firms report having a formal policy in place for these employees.
