Royal Mail Group launches company car salary sacrifice scheme

Royal Mail launches mental health first aiders programmeRoyal Mail Group has introduced a company car salary sacrifice scheme for its more than 120,000 employees in order to support its commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2040.

Through a partnership with Novuna Vehicle Solutions, the group’s employees will have access to new and used low-emission and electric vehicles (EV) through a salary sacrifice scheme. A tailor-made EV hub will offer guidance on switching to an EV, bespoke insurance will be provided by Howden Insurance UK, and vehicles can be ordered through a new market leading internal ordering portal.

Employees will be able to choose different smart chargers for installation at their homes, which will be included in their monthly contract. The provider will also leverage used vehicles as part of end-to-end decarbonisation leasing options, in order to provide employees with a cost-effective way to switch to EVs.

Jon Lawes, managing director at Novuna Vehicle Solutions, said: “This appointment is a recognition of our ability to deliver a comprehensive salary sacrifice solution at scale. We are committed to providing innovative and accessible solutions that enable organisations such as Royal Mail to achieve their sustainability goals while empowering their employees.
