National Grid introduces salary sacrifice car scheme

National Grid has introduced a salary sacrifice car scheme to its 10,000 UK employees.

The scheme is available through National Grid’s online flexible benefits scheme, provided by Vebnet, with vehicles provided by Tusker.

After a soft launch in November and roadshows held at National Grid offices across the UK, the scheme was officially launched on 25 January, and 100 new cars were ordered in the first 48 hours.

Caroline Adams, employee benefits manager at National Grid said: “Our flexible benefits plan is an important element of National Grid’s total reward package. We see the introduction of salary sacrifice cars as a great way of broadening its appeal.

“We knew the scheme would be popular following the level of interest expressed by employees during the roadshows, but the volume of orders placed in the first month has exceeded all our expectations.
