Salary sacrifice removes stress of running a car, says Fleet Evolution

Andrew Leech managing director of Fleet Evolution has said that salary sacrifice removes the stress of running a car.

Fleet Evolution contends that a salary sacrifice car scheme can provide a convenient and reliable solution to employees, as well providing employers with the assurance of regular attendance or on-time business meetings.

Analysis by the company has revealed that 82% of employees who have taken a car through salary sacrifice were typically running used cars of up to 10 years old, and likely to suffer breakdowns.

Leech (pictured) said: “Consumers as a whole are demanding greater convenience as time becomes more precious, and work-life balance dominates the conversations of many corporate HR departments.

"Those employers that can help employees achieve the ideal balance should be able to reap huge rewards in recruitment, retention and productivity.

“In this era of offering instant solutions to daily problems, for many the car remains a relic of a bygone age and lives can be massively disrupted by anything from engine failure, to something as simple as a puncture or servicing.

“Of course, the knock-on effect when things go wrong don’t just impact on the employee, but they affect the employer and their customers as well, through late attendance, missed appointments  and reduced productivity.

“Car salary sacrifice schemes remain an extremely valuable benefit to employees due to their convenience, ease of use, absence of upfront payments and value for money. 

“As well as the convenience and reliability factor, they also genuinely promote the uptake of less polluting, more environmentally friendly cars so that they offer employees a perfect win-win all round.”
