Publishing company, Telegraph Media Group, has launched the TMG Benefits Xchange scheme which includes a personalised total reward statement. The scheme also includes a salary sacrifice car scheme from Tusker, so that the 1,070 staff can view all their benefits online in one place.
The firm’s existing pension scheme, childcare vouchers, bikes to work and computers at work are also available via salary sacrifice. Staff can also extend private medical insurance and health assessments to their families via salary sacrifice.
Telegraph Media Group was advised by Tony Nevin, managing director of its flexible benefits advisor, Serenity Flex and Reward, to select the SalarySacrifice4Cars (SS4C) online solution Tusker and to provide employees with the option of sacrificing salary to select a brand new car.
“We have worked with Tusker on other clients and they have impressed us with their knowledge and professionalism,” he said.
The Telegraph Media Group set a carbon cap of 160g/km for all vehicles selected under the scheme, which went live at the start of this month, to encourage uptake of environmentally-friendly cars.
To help communicate details of the scheme to Telegraph employees, Tusker attended two roadshows at its central London offices in which employees were given a thorough briefing and provided with details of how to get the best from the scheme.
Head of human resources, Richard Morgan said: “When choosing the benefits to include on our new flexible benefits website, TMG Benefits Xchange, we took some time making sure that the people we partnered with were well regarded in their field.
“SS4C is the leading online salary sacrifice car scheme in the fleet market and we felt they would understand our employees and their needs.
“The SS4C portal provides all the details our employees need when choosing their new car and provides an impressive depth of detail and information for the user. In all our dealings with Tusker, they have been very professional which has maintained our confidence in them.”
David Hosking, managing director of Tusker, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as the salary sacrifice car provider for this scheme and are very much looking forward to working with everyone at the Telegraph Media Group.”
