The London Ambulance Service’s car benefit scheme, provided by Tusker, has received an award for the ‘best staff travel benefit’ at the annual Employee Benefit Awards.
Tusker entered the awards in conjunction with the London Ambulance Service, which had implemented its scheme in 2015.
London Ambulance says it has seen dramatic results following the scheme’s introduction, with a reduction in employee turnover of 45%, something which it felt deserved to be noted.
Tusker’s car benefit scheme enables almost all employees at London Ambulance Service to drive a new car for a fixed monthly amount.
The free to implement scheme has attracted more than 150 drivers so far and has been particularly successful for its large proportion of international employees and those on fixed-term contracts.
A spokesperson for the awards judging panel said: “The car scheme was introduced to support London Ambulance Service NHS Trust’s retention and attraction strategy, including reducing turnover among paramedic staff. It is an innovative approach to a specific problem.”
Earlier in the month, Tusker also received the Best Car Benefit Firm 2017 at the Business Growth Awards in recognition of its 87% company growth over the past three years and the continued development of its salary sacrifice scheme.
