What Makes Company Bikes as Employee Benefits So Popular

Company bike leasing is currently one of the most popular benefits for employees. It's not just about skilled labor shortages and a special offering in recruiting, but also about doing something good for existing employees and enabling them to move sustainably and healthily.

Offering a company bike motivates employees to reach their workplace quickly and flexibly in the future, besides the benefits for the environment and climate. Because a bicycle means no traffic jams, no annoying parking searches. At the same time, employees can engage in physical activity and do something for their physical and mental health. Sick days and mental health are no longer taboo topics; more and more companies are implementing measures as part of corporate health management.

For both companies and employees, company bikes are easier and cheaper to implement than a company car. Companies can significantly reduce their fringe benefits costs. Employees also save up to 40 percent compared to private purchases through salary conversion. The bike can be used both for commuting and privately.

In the city, the company bike is faster than the car

More movement and sustainability are the main reasons why people choose company bikes. In large cities, the bike is not only the most environmentally friendly mode of transportation but also the fastest. Not least because most routes are shorter than 5 km and can thus be easily covered by bike.

E-bikes are also suitable for rural areas due to their range, where distances can be longer. Not least in combination with buses or trains, long distances can be covered in an environmentally friendly way with the e-bike as a company bike.

Important Contribution to Environmental and Climate Protection

In addition to reducing noise and congestion, company bikes in large cities also reduce the share of nitrogen dioxide and thus significantly improve air quality. Occasional cyclists with 2,000 km per year save 458 g of NO2 per year compared to a diesel car.

Stay Healthy by Cycling

Another important aspect is promoting employee health. Cycling to work offers an excellent opportunity to integrate physical activity into everyday life. Regular cycling strengthens the cardiovascular system, improves endurance, and promotes muscle strength. In addition, physical activity helps to reduce stress and improve mood, which in turn increases overall well-being. Studies have shown that commuters who cycle to work are, on average, healthier and more satisfied than those who use other means of transportation.

Effective Benefit for Promoting Employee Retention and Motivation

Employees can also use the company bike privately. This increases employee loyalty. In addition to the commute, employees can use the company bike, for example, for shopping, take it on vacation, or go on a relaxed weekend trip.
