Bluebit have embraced Southampton City Councils drive to get more people cycling to work and we have signed up to one of the many cycle2work schemes that are currently being run that incentivise businesses to invest in two wheeled transportation for their staff.
It was a no brainer really and as 75% of our staff (three of us) live within 2 miles of the office we decided it was a good idea.
The scheme is open to all our employees and not only aims to keep our workforce healthy, it also has an added benefit of saving some money for the employee and employer. Neil Brooks, Managing Director of Bluebit Ltd explains:
We have opened the scheme up to all our employees offering them a chance to purchase their own bike at a reduced rate over a period of 12 months with no interest payments. Whilst one of our staff members live further afield in Bournemouth, Hampshire, we are aiming to encourage all our employees to partake. The idea is simple: a healthier team makes for a happier and more productive team.
