Incentives to Sign up For a Scheme Like Bike To Work

The staff incentives for joining Bike 2 Work Scheme as an employee are huge both for your health and for saving money on your travel! There really is no reason not to register and become a better, healthier you!

Bicycles have been around for centuries in one form or another, and their popularity to this day is clearly with reason. They are economical – they run on whatever you had for breakfast to eat that day, saving you massive amounts of money on petrol costs or bus tickets. As they run dependant on how much energy you have, the carbon footprint of a bicycle is nothing. In todays environmentally friendly society, there is increasing amount of pressure to lead an increasingly ‘greener’ lifestyle and by signing up to the Bike 2 Work Scheme you will not only help the environment but you will reap these further employee incentives:

  1. By making a conscientious effort to cycle to and from work every day, you are actually improving your general health. Your body needs exercise and studies show that on average, we spend around 14 hours every day sitting down! Being inactive for these periods of time can be detrimental to our health, as we need exercise in order to burn off meals and tone our muscles. By making one change such as cycling to work, you can improve this tenfold, and you will quickly start noticing the benefits it can have on your body.
  2. The employee incentives on using Bike 2 Work Scheme are massive. Through the salary sacrifice scheme, you as an employee actually save money on high quality equipment as it is classed as taxable benefit – so it is exempt from tax and the repayments (whether they are weekly or monthly) are interest-free! So you can afford to get a good quality bike that you can rely on day after day to get you to and from work.
  3. The staff incentives also involve general wellbeing. If you find yourself stuck in a routine of getting a bus to work every day, sitting down at work and only getting up at the end of the day to get the bus back, add some variety to your life! By cycling you can often avoid waiting around for buses, take different – potentially faster routes to and from work (buses often take long winded routes just to get back to where you need to be) and save yourself from bus fares. A single bus ticket these days costs around £2 and by cycling to and from work each week, that can save you up to and around £20!

And the staff incentives don’t stop here! Register today with Bike 2 Work Scheme and we will be on hand and happy to help get you set up with a bicycle and start reaping the employee incentives!

    I only heard about Bike 2 Work Scheme when I visited my local cycle shop. It was great to hear that the government actually had a scheme in place which made cycling cost effective for the employee, whilst promoting a healthier lifestyle. Setting up the scheme was extremely easy, they made sure that we had everything that we required and was always on standby to answer any questions. I would happily recommend the Bike 2 Work Scheme to any employer.

    One of the things that attracted us to Bike 2 Work Scheme was the number of cycle shops available enabling our employees to access one near them, which appears to have encouraged take up of the scheme. Having circulated the leaflets provided, there has been a lot of interest once people could see how easy and financially advantageous it was. All our dealings with the scheme have been very professionally handled, all our queries answered, and paperwork dealt with speedily. We would recommend Bike 2 Work to any employer.

    I was given the task of getting our company Abbey Logistics Group on the Bike 2 Work Scheme, I looked around and researched a number of schemes but thought that the Bike 2 Work Scheme was the best. I still feel I made the correct choice for a number of reasons. The amount of partner shops I found was fantastic and the speedy response from the scheme is second to none just to name a couple. May I take a moment to say a big thank you to the Bike 2 Work Scheme for helping our company to a greener future.
