Gofor adds salary sacrifice to further support learnd's decarbonisation goal

Gofor, the Edinburgh-based fleet management company, has just introduced a new electric vehicle (EV) salary sacrifice scheme for learnd employees.

learnd uses building management systems (BMS) to help customers save energy and reduce carbon emissions and now manages one in 20 UK non-residential buildings

In January, learnd appointed Gofor as its sole supplier to decarbonise and manage its 100 strong fleet because of its expertise and proactive approach to fleet decarbonisation. It has now extended the relationship to include a salary sacrifice scheme.

The salary sacrifice scheme was rolled out to 200 eligible learnd employees via a Gofor hosted webinar last month. Gofor is offering a wide choice of EVs on the scheme to cater for a range of budgets - employees can view the options via a dedicated salary sacrifice portal. Gofor launched the portal, which includes the ability to compare personal leasing costs with salary sacrifice, in September this year.

learnd Group Health, Safety & Compliance Manager Andrew Bishop explains the importance of working with Gofor:

"Gofor’s expertise in supporting our transition to lower carbon vehicles has been invaluable. At learnd, Net Zero isn't just an end goal, it's a philosophy we integrate into every decision, so it’s crucial our employee cars align to that overall vision. We’ve seen really high engagement with salary sacrifice so far, and we expect the scheme to have longer term benefits around employee attraction and retention."

To make the switch to electric vehicles easier for the company’s drivers, learnd has installed multiple workplace charging points, whilst it is also providing home charging installation for some job roles.

Paul Reeves, Account Manager for Gofor commented:

"Our approach is to partner with our customers for the long term. With the fleet management in place, rolling out salary sacrifice was the natural next step to align with learnd’s strong environmental focus. Electric vehicle salary sacrifice is brilliant for businesses as it’s so tax efficient for both employee and employer - plus there are no set up costs. We’re looking forward to helping more learnd employees make the switch to electric cars inthe coming months."

Salary sacrifice continues to see rapid growth. The latest Leasing Outlook survey (October 2023) from the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) has reported 55% year on year growth.
