New salary sacrifice scheme provides key employee benefit for King’s College Hospital
King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched a salary sacrifice scheme to provide an enhanced benefit to staff and promote green car use.
Implemented by Tusker, the scheme is available to over 9,800 eligible employees from the Trust’s 13,000-strong workforce.
The plan doesn’t require a deposit or credit check, and provides the employee with a new car which includes maintenance, insurance, breakdown cover, tyres and road fund licence, while still offering an average monthly saving of £80 when compared to retail schemes, according to Tusker.
The scheme has been implemented to offer an additional benefit to eligible employees as well as promoting green car use as part of the Trust’s moves to reduce its CO2 emissions. Tusker set a CO2 cap of 130g/km in order to maximise tax savings while minimising environmental impact. As with every Tusker driver, employees are also given the choice of three approved carbon off-setting schemes to support, free of charge, in order to ensure that their cars are carbon neutral for the life of the contract.
The implementation of the scheme was also backed up by comprehensive marketing support, with Tusker developing an effective communications campaign to inform King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust employees about the new Salary Saving Scheme. This incorporated roadshows at three key sites, as well as posters for placement around the site to educate staff members about the benefits on offer to them.
