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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
