The fact that cycling is very central to the sustainable mobility transition is also a growing awareness among companies. More and more companies are including bicycle leasing in their mobility policy. Brand new o2o partner Vaigo connects all mobility providers with your business mobility, payroll and HR processes. And within this wide range of flexible mobility options, o2o bike leasing could not be missing.
The creation of unique mobility policies
Cycling is popular! Thanks to the innovation on the bicycle market (better and smaller batteries, a more diverse range of bikes,…) and a fiscally favourable regulation, riding a bicycle is not longer only a leisure activity, but also a fully-fledged means of transport for commuting between home and work. When companies choose to offer bicycle leasing to their employees, the implementation is not always straightforward, since bicycle leasing can be financed in various ways. Below are a number of examples of different mobility policies:
- Gross salary exchange for employees who exchanges a part of their salary for a leased bicycle. This option is very beneficial for the employee and budget neutral for the employer.
- Via a TCO-car budget where the employee combines a less expensive car or a reduced use of it with the purchase of a customized leased bike.
- A third possibility is to offer bike leasing within the legal mobility budget.
Finally, the option to combine these tree options is also possible.
The consideration of those options to offer bike leasing as a company, requires expertise. It’s a complex reflection in which 2 things are very important:
- The management of bike lease needs to be thought through.
- Everything has to be connected with payroll without a huge administrative hassle.
Vaigo and o2o support companies within this process by providing the expertise and knowledge, so that in collaboration, we can work out a flexible mobility policy with bike leasing.
Vaigo, the mobility portal for all employees of big companies
Both Vaigo and o2o company bike lease have the same purpose in mind: delivering employees easy access to bike leasing and overcoming administrative hassle by using automated processes. Thanks to the partnership between Vaigo and o2o, it delivers our clients the advantage that all mobility options (including bike lease) can be managed from 1 mobility platform.
Since the systems of Vaigo and o2o are linked to each other, very little changes for the end-users. In fact, the process got simplified. From now on, you can choose a bike lease out of the broad network of bike dealers of o2o (people can choose a bike dealer, based on their location, brand or name of dealer), and get a direct view on the salary impact of the chosen bike. The time-consuming process between the employee and the concerned HR-manager will be shortened. Every bike, also popular brands like Canyon and Cowboy, can be in a ordered in a simple matter of time!
“The partnership between Vaigo & o2o offers Belgian companies the possibility to easily join the sustainable mobility story. One in which the bicycle takes a central place and is accessible for every employee. And not unimportantly, the HR-manager who implements the bike leasing, gets access to the tools to manage this subsequently.” – Wim Floré, co-founder & managing partner o2o
