Atos implements car salary sacrifice scheme
Atos said a key reason for choosing the Novalease solution was that the contract for the car is held by the employee. The structure is based on novated leasing, which eliminates risks for Atos and provides a departing employee with more options, including retaining the car at the same lease rate. As a result, there is no need to load the monthly payments to cover Atos for potential early terminations costs, resulting in a more cost effective solution for employees.
The scheme is being communicated to employees through a bespoke marketing campaign, devised in partnership with sgfleet. This has already included a teaser campaign in the run-up to the official launch date and a range of distinctive posters, flyers and emails. During February, there will also be a series of roadshows at 12 Atos sites around the UK. To further promote the scheme, special offers will be made available on a number of cars.
Cassandra Gallott, head of reward and recognition, UK&I at Atos, said: “I am delighted that sgfleet has been able to offer a scheme that can achieve both great savings for our employees as well as meet our business needs. The feedback and engagement we have received from our employees so far has been astounding, so it is wonderful to introduce a benefit that has such a positive impact.”
