Ricardo adds salary sacrifice car scheme to flex

Engineering firm Ricardo has added a salary sacrifice car scheme to its flexible benefits scheme.†

Cars selected through the scheme, which is provided by Tusker, include the Peugeot 107, Citroen DS3 and several Seat models, including the Ibiza and Leon.

Staff can access the scheme online and select up to two new cars each, for themselves and for spouses or family members.

Ricardo communicated the car scheme using posters, roadshows and employee briefings.

Liane Richardson, HR manager at Ricardo, said: “Although we have not set a carbon cap for cars available on the scheme to give our employees as wide a choice as possible, early indications are that staff are selecting environmentally-friendly cars which have the lowest emissions, as they are typically the most cost effective.

“We found the implementation of the scheme went very smoothly, with the Tusker team taking us through the process on a step-by-step basis, answering any queries we had along the way.”
