Bicycle leasing in your cafeteria plan: totally digital and with no worries!

Thanks to the cafeteria plan, employees can make all their own decisions as to how to make their pay more flexible. This allows you as an employer to easily respond to the needs of every employee, raising their satisfaction. Whereas the popularity of cars in the cafeteria plan is dropping, more and more employees are choosing a bicycle. Indeed, the bike is among the top five most chosen supplements to the salary package through the cafeteria plan today!

Would you like to include bicycle leasing as a popular fringe benefit in your cafeteria plan too? That’s super-easy to do! We’ll explain how you do so in this blog.


A cafeteria plan – what is that exactly?

What exactly is a cafeteria plan? The cafeteria plan is a personalised salary package that gives employees the digital ability to make part of their gross salary or end-of-year bonus, among other things, more flexible for a fringe benefit of their choice. As such, they can better align their reward package to their personal needs and lifestyle.  

Fringe benefits often chosen are:

  • Bicycle leasing
  • Pension savings
  • Extra holidays
  • Multimedia
  • Cars

Bicycle leasing is a valuable way to build a better relationship with your employees, it is also a tool to attract new talent and it is a sustainable mobility solution.

Bicycle leasing: an indispensable benefit in your cafeteria plan

Bicycle leasing is a popular option in the cafeteria plan thanks to the increased focus on sustainability and health. So it’s no wonder it’s among the top five most chosen fringe benefits. Moreover, a lease bike also contributes to your employees’ general satisfaction and involvement, and all this in a tax-friendly way. So it’s a win-win!
