Six out of ten employers prepared to offer mobility budget
Indiville carried out the Acerta survey, which included 600 employers, CEOs, and company directors. Two-thirds are planning a mobility budget for company car drivers that functionally need a car. Half also considered it for employees that don’t need the vehicle for their job, but have a ‘salary car’.
Employees prepared but hesitant
A survey in 2018 among 17.000 employees showed that 6 out of 10 are ready to take a mobility budget and a smaller car to replace their company car. More than half wanted a mobility budget if it involved a hybrid vehicle and extra days off. Only 1 in 10 employees expect more than half the employees to take a mobility budget when given a chance.
Acerta thinks the discrepancy has its origins in the practical execution. “An evolution away from the salary car demands an effort from all parties. The employer has to deal with the administration, and the employee has to find out how to arrange his mobility. This entails a lot of deliberation which demands motivation and time,” says Annelies Baelus, director of Acerta Consult. She feels that information and facilitation are ‘crucial’.
