PeopleValue, a leading provider of motivation solutions serving companies in the UK, launched a new fuel card voluntary benefit product at Employee Benefits Live last week to wide acclaim.
The new fuel card proposition was launched at Employee Benefits Live alongside Advantage6, PeopleValue’s all new voluntary benefits portal, and was universally praised by delegates in attendance.

The fuel card can be supplied as a bolt-on to an existing voluntary benefit portal or comes as part of Advantage6. This means both existing PeopleValue clients and new clients can integrate the fuel card to add to their existing menu of voluntary benefits.
The fuel card works by offering users a fixed rate of fuel for the week ahead, communicated by email and text, ensuring employees pay that rate and not the advertised pump price at participating fuel stations. The card can be used to purchase both diesel and unleaded at more than 2,000 petrol stations across the UK. Users can determine which petrol stations accept the card using the in-built geo-location tool within the service which highlights participating stations and is optimised for computer, smartphone and tablet devices.
Mike Morgan, chief executive officer at PeopleValue, said: ‘We were delighted to be able to launch the fuel card to such a targeted audience at Employee Benefits Live. Although we were confident that the product would attract significant interest, the response was overwhelming with everyone expressing interest in the product and also wanting to find out more information. With the price of fuel seemingly showing no signs of reducing, we felt that this is something that would make a difference to the lives of the working nation.’
