Alcatel Lucent launches cycle to work

Alcatel-Lucent has added a salary sacrifice cycle to work scheme to its flexible benefits offering for 2009.
The global communications firm introduced the offering to 1,500 UK based employees in response to feedback on benefits.
Richard Tyler, compensation, benefits and HRIS manager, said: “It is a green initiative and we now feel that the time is right to introduce a benefit that will be of use not only to out employees, but also to our business in highlighting our drive to reduce our carbon footprint.”
The scheme has been introduced in partnership with The Grass Roots group, using bike supplier Cyclescheme.
