Tusker has retained the NOE CPC framework following another successful tender.
Tusker, who have worked with NOE CPC for the past eight years, now have more than 16,000 cars ordered on the framework through its Car Benefit Scheme.
The scheme is currently available for over 300,000 employees at a quarter of NHS Trusts and a third of ambulance services up and down the UK as well as numerous police forces, fire services, education, councils, housing associations and arms reach organisations.
The Car Benefit Scheme provides employees of public and private sector organisations with the opportunity to drive a brand new car, complete with insurance, road tax, tyres, breakdown cover, servicing and maintenance, for a fixed monthly amount.
In addition, Tusker works with NOE CPC to provide a range of essential user car schemes for organisations, delivering the flexibility to replicate individual car policies based on variable allowances.
Many NHS Trusts have found the addition of the Car Benefit Scheme has had a huge impact on the retention of key staff, says Tusker.
For example, during the last 18 months, London Ambulance Service has seen employee turnover reduce from 14.5%, to almost half, at 8.1%, and this is expected to continue to fall as more employees take up the scheme, it said.
Fiona Lee, HR manager for NUTH, agreed: “We’ve experienced increased engagement and retention with the Car Benefit Scheme, which has a 10% take-up rate from our 14,000 staff. It’s a great reflection of the value of this benefit for our employees.”
Greg Masters, senior HR manager for the London Ambulance Service, added: “With the majority of our staff working shifts that may finish after most public transport had ceased, the offer to staff of a fully maintained, brand new car of their choosing and under a financially advantageous scheme, was considered as a high priority in tackling the staff retention issues we were experiencing.”
Paul Gilshan, CEO at Tusker, said: “We’re thrilled that we have successfully retained the NOE CPC tender which is a key framework for us in providing the Car Benefit Scheme to NHS Trusts and Public Sector organisations across the UK. We’re looking forward to continuing to provide the service to thousands of employees for the next four years, and beyond.”
Julian Clarke, head of fleet services at NOE CPC, said: “Tusker continues to provide a valued benefit for organisations across the country, so they were the right choice for the framework. We hope that more of our members will provide this valued benefit to their employees in the coming years.”
