The City of Penticton offers virtual workers all of the amenities of a big city, with way less of the hassle. One common attraction amongst professionals who move here from a big city is the lack of a commute. Amenities can be accessed within minutes from most downtown residential homes, and those looking for slightly more space choose to live on acreages in areas like Naramata (one of Canada’s top wine regions).

Eliminating the need to commute is a win-win for all involved:

  • There’s the obvious environmental benefits of reducing smog-causing CO2 from fuel emissions.
  • Workers save valuable time—often hours a day, which can be used for more important things like living a healthy lifestyle and spending quality time with family and friends.
  • In addition to saving time by not commuting, there are huge financial benefits too. Gas and transportation costs are reduced, and the need for costly daily use car insurance is also eliminated.
  • Benefits of a commute free work day tend to allow workers to focus more on productivity during their work-hours, there-by benefiting their employers.

I think we can all agree—commuting is a pain that should be avoided at all costs. Penticton is the dream location where virtual workers can immerse themselves in a vibrant community of other likeminded professionals, and get back to focusing on things in life that are more important than traffic jams.
