Encouraging cycling within your business can have a number of positive benefits. Apart from the health aspects, employees who cycle to work:
Give your organisation unlimited access to our Cycle Hire scheme. You can use the bikes for business travel or commuting, depending on the individual needs of your employees and your business. Businesses can purchase between 5 and 20 pooled keys for £90 each. Each one gives you unlimited bike access for a year, for all journeys of up to 30 minutes. The Santander Cycles website makes it easy to manage your account online with its business accounts reporting tool. Find out more about Santander business accounts.
Salary sacrifice tax breaks can be offered as a standard benefit to help employees with affordable cycling equipment.
A number of cycle suppliers have formed the Cycle to Work Alliance to provide guidance on setting up a salary sacrifice scheme based on the experience of others.
