Demand from SMEs to offer their employees an increasing range of flexible benefits has underpinned demand for Ogilvie Fleet’s salary sacrifice car solution.
Within its first 12 months of availability a total of 15 Ogilvie Fleet customers have signed up to MiSalarySacrifice and a further 12 organisations are already in the pipeline.
Traditionally, car salary sacrifice schemes have been targeted at major employers. However, while Ogilvie Fleet is targeting organisations with more than 1,000 employees, head of salary sacrifice Richard Jessop (pictured) said there was “a real appetite” for the solution from the SME (small and medium-sized enterprise) community.
Ogilvie Fleet launched MiSalarySacrifice to meet customer demand following growing interest in such a product.
Jessop said: “We find that SMEs want to offer a complete flexible benefits package to help them retain and attract the best employees.
“Historically some businesses have been put off introducing a salary sacrifice car scheme because of the potential costs to them arising from an employee leaving the business or going on maternity leave but with MiSalarySacrifice those risks are removed.
Sysmex UK has extended its partnership with the company by introducing MiSalarySacrifice. It operates a fleet of 72 company cars and HR manager, Lisa Dunstan, said: “We already offer our employees a comprehensive benefits package and we were seeking a salary sacrifice car provider.
“The Ogilvie Fleet scheme provides all the benefits of a traditional salary sacrifice car scheme but removes the cost risks posed to the business from people leaving. We also needed a scheme with little administration and Ogilvie could offer us all of this.”
