Capgemini renews Leasedrive Velo deal
Capgemini, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has 800 current and 3,500 eligible company car drivers. Working on its behalf, Leasedrive Velo has been extending the company car choice to increase its appeal to drivers.
Commercial director Roddy Graham said: 'Our regular driver surveys have allowed us to fine-tune the existing salary sacrifice scheme. Together we have made this even more attractive by widening vehicle choice. The number of manufacturers has recently been extended from Audi, BMW, Lexus, Mini, Toyota and VW to also include Citroen, Ford, Honda, Mercedes, Renault, Seat, Skoda and Smart.
'We have launched a tiered-scheme based around sub-120g/km, 121 to 150g/km and 151 to 185g/km CO2 emission levels. To assist with choice, these tiers have been colour-coded so when drivers go online to evaluate alternative models they can make an informed choice, taking into account the environment and thus contributing to Capgemini's sustainability project.
'Since the middle of last month we have been attending Capgemini's Benefits Fairs, presenting the new company car choice list to eligible employees and the feedback so far has been very positive. We are running one-to-one driver clinics and explaining the full benefits of salary sacrifice to encourage more employees into the scheme.'
Leasedrive Velo has also introduced an innovative salary sacrifice section within the online quotation service. This enables employees to see the total net cost to them, including net salary deduction and benefit-in-kind tax.
Ann Brown, UK HR director at Capgemini, said: 'The contract extension was an easy decision to make as Leasedrive Velo has been doing such a great job. The company's attention to detail, speed of response, enthusiasm, excitement and energy has been exemplary. People do make a real difference to an organisation and this is evidenced in the customer service we receive.'
