In the UK there is a Government backed “Bike to Work Scheme” to encourage and incentivise employees to cycle to work.
At Ian Brown’s Cycle Shop we have organised and operated a similar scheme that enable employers to offer their staff savings on new cycle purchases as an incentive to cycle to work.
- Step 1 – Firm XYZ Limited registers under the Ian Brown’s Cycle Shop Cycle2Work Scheme. The company selects either one or two calendar months to promote the scheme within their firm. This entitles them to a 10% discount on any approved employee purchase.
- Step 2 – Employee selects a bicycle from the 600 or so on offer at Ian Brown’s Cycle Shop.
- Step 3 – Summary of bike and accessories sent to XYZ Limited. Once approved and after discount the settlement of invoice is arranged.
- Step 4 – Customer comes to collect bicycle and accessories and agree a salary sacrifice over an agreed period, say 12 months, of equal deductions.
Why cycle to work?
Saves money, can almost on all trips be quicker, keeps you fitter and helps the environment. Employees also arrive at work more alert and ready for work and the ride home can be a great way to distress from a hard days work too. It is proven too that healthier employees have much less absenteeism.
