A new survey has revealed that employees are keen to find out more about workplace benefits such as salary sacrifice electric vehicle (EV) schemes.
In the research carried out by YouGov, 73% of those asked to choose the most important factor of an employee benefit, selected the ability to save money as their top priority.
Benefits focused on mental and physical wellbeing were less popular (42% and 39%, respectively).
It's believed less than one in five (18%) UK firms offer salary sacrifice for EVs. However, the YouGov survey found that once employees fully understood the benefits of salary sacrifice, three quarters (74%) said they would like the scheme on offer at their workplace.
Only half of the employees surveyed felt comfortable to ask their boss for additional benefits. While only a third of respondents (36%) believe they are aware of all the benefits available at their workplace and 54% have never, or don't recall ever being asked for feedback on their benefits package.
The Arnold Clark Salary Sacrifice Scheme
Our salary sacrifice scheme encourages environmentally friendly driving across your business, and your staff can save up to 40% on leasing an electric vehicle.
Employees can select a brand-new electric car from a range of manufacturers, with full vehicle maintenance included.
How does it work?
The salary sacrifice car is a company car leased by the employer for two to three years. To pay for this, the employee will sacrifice part of their gross salary every month – this results in income tax and National Insurance (NI) savings and means they are subject to benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax.
For zero-emission and low-emission cars, salary sacrifice can result in huge savings for both the employee and employer.
What's more, our car scheme is fully managed at every stage by our talented and friendly team of account managers.
