RSA staff take up salary sacrifice car scheme

EXCLUSIVE: RSA has seen 1.5% of its employees take up its car salary sacrifice scheme, meaning it is halfway towards its first-year target of 3%.


The insurance organisation launched the scheme for its 7,500 eligible employees in September 2013 and has currently seen more than 110 employees take up the benefit.

The Green Drive scheme, which is provided by Zenith, was implemented as the result of a competition run among employees to generate ideas to reduce RSA’s carbon footprint.

The organisation has capped carbon dioxide emissions at 120g/km, but it also encourages staff to take up low-emission cars.

The scheme also includes RSA insurance designed specifically for the scheme, as well as maintenance, accident management, breakdown cover and road tax.

Ed Airey, UK reward manager at RSA, said: “In bringing the Green Drive scheme to life, we wanted to partner with a qualified and experienced provider to help deliver a new salary sacrifice benefit for our employees.”
