Zenith Provecta has introduced a bikes-for-work scheme for its employees.
The scheme, which is provided by Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op, has been rolled out as part of the organisation’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy. It is available through a salary sacrifice arrangement.
Through the scheme, employees choose a new bike, which is purchased by Zenith Provecta, along with any related equipment such as lights and a helmet. The bike and equipment is then leased back to the employee over a set re-payment period of 12 months.
The scheme is cost-effective because the cost of the lease to the employee is taken from gross salary, producing tax savings.
Ian Hughes, commercial director of Zenith Provecta, said: “Our new bikes-for-work scheme has already generated a lot of interest.
“Our employees are very aware of the advantages of cycling to work, in terms of its impact on the environment and their fitness, and it can often be quicker than using a car on congested roads.”
