Gofor, the Edinburgh-based fleet management company, has been appointed to manage a new electric vehicle salary sacrifice plan for Roc Technologies.
Roc Technologies, a UK technology business working with customers whose security and the protection of sensitive data are critical, hopes the new salary sacrifice plan will encourage more employees to consider driving electric vehicles.
The partnership with Gofor represents an extension of an already existing relationship between the two businesses, with Gofor providing Roc with proactive fleet management services and supporting its transition to an all-electric fleet.
Claire Thompson, Fleet & Facilities Manager at Roc Technologies, commented:
‘We have a great partnership with Gofor, and as we continue to take steps to improve our carbon footprint, we are pleased to give our colleagues the opportunity to transition to electric vehicles. We knew we could rely on Gofor, so extending our partnership and asking them to administer this new colleague benefit and help drive our environmental goals made perfect sense.’
Roc’s salary sacrifice plan is now in the process of being rolled out to its employees across the UK, with Gofor’s scheme designed to make the onboarding, and overall transition to electric vehicles as straightforward as possible.
Graham Lesslie, Managing Director of Gofor, commented:
‘Roc Technologies has been a fantastic business to work with over recent years. That they’ve benchmarked our salary sacrifice plan against the market and decided to extend our partnership to include this proposition makes me immensely proud.
It’s a testament to the hard work of both our teams and that we’ve built such a strong working relationship. I look forward to helping their employees experience the environmental and financial benefits of driving electric vehicles.’
The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) reports that salary sacrifice is the fastest-growing funding method in the UK. Salary sacrifice helps employees access electric vehicles at a competitive rate, underpinned by national insurance and tax savings – while offering employer benefits, including talent attraction and retention.
