Helping Ground Control offer a cost-effective employee benefit
“We thought the scheme looked like a good thing to do as it would be available to all our employees, giving them access to more environmentally friendly cars.” - Tanya Meah, People Director at Ground Control.
Ground Control are reducing their overall emissions and offering their team a great employee benefit in one hit. The salary sacrifice scheme has gone down well, with lots of interest from the team.
Reaching Net Zero
Ground Control is an award-winning carbon neutral company offering a variety of external maintenance services to 50,000 commercial properties across the UK.
The business had been leasing their own fleet of Tesla Model 3s to their team, but found that they wanted a wider variety of family friendly models. Reducing emissions while also giving employees vehicles that fit their needs outside of work was crucial. This was where Octopus Electric Vehicles came in. Every top EV on the market is available through our salary sacrifice scheme, so your team can choose the perfect car for them and their lifestyle.
“We’ve always had a focus on vehicles that are as environmentally friendly as possible and we also wanted to be able to extend this to our staff who don’t have company cars.”
Show your team you care about them, and the planet, by joining our salary sacrifice scheme.
Attracting and retaining top talent
Attracting new a team who share the same values on sustainability was important for Ground Control. They also wanted to do something to support their current team, who wanted to go electric but hadn’t switched because the previous company cars didn't suit their lives outside of work.
“We want to attract people who not only share our sustainability values at work but are also passionate about them in their personal lives. Offering incentives that encourage them to drive electric is a great way to do this.”
An affordable employee benefit
Ground Control were looking for a more affordable way to offer their whole team an electric car, so our salary sacrifice scheme was perfect as it's free for businesses to join. And the tax savings that come with salary sacrifice mean the team are able to save up to 40% on the cost of their car. Plus they now save on ongoing insurance costs, maintenance, and tyres. And of course the cost of fueling their car, as driving electric can be up to 80% cheaper than petrol.
