A recent survey by the San Francisco Business Times reported that 93 percent of businesses responding believe the current housing crisis is a problem for their business. Many businesses are taking a pre-active approach to the situation including the following measures:
- Assisting with home loads
- Establishing housing allowances
- More telecommuting
- Temporary housing
- Improved commuting
- Relocating remotely
Even greater than the individual measures themselves is the realization by business that they can no longer wait for political solutions but must take responsibility themselves.
