Cycle to Work success at The Trade Centre UK

Want to keep fit and help cut emissions? Cycle to work!


Thanks to Cycle Solutions, The Trade Centre UK have implemented a Cycle to Work scheme. Supported by the UK Government, this initiative promotes healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution.


This scheme enables employees to save up to 42% of the retail cost of bikes and equipment, furthering the company’s overall aim: to improve employee health and wellbeing initiative. The company first trialled the opportunity in September of last year in which more than 60 employees joined the scheme. As a result of this wonderful employee engagement, in 2019, the scheme will remain open all year round.


Extremely Popular

Cycle Solutions have played a huge part in the overall success of the scheme. In September, the cycling company have sent a representative to each site with a choice of bikes to discuss the benefits of cycling. In addition to this, The Trade Centre UK's HR department has contributed to the 17% enrolment by issuing leaflets, sending out reminders and ensuring every staff member receives the benefits.


“We introduced the cycle to work scheme in September 2018 to encourage the health and wellbeing of our employees. The scheme has proven to be extremely popular amongst the team and we are hoping to utilise the scheme to support charity events this year” said Human Resources Advisor and scheme organiser, Laura Ruiz.


Fantastic Range of Bikes

The Cycle to Work scheme comes with an array of options for employees to pick from and is offered to every site. The company hopes that the flexibility of the hire agreement and increase of roadshows on all sites will increase the number of employees that request this benefit.


Junior Logistics, Lauren Reynolds explained: “From the fantastic range of bikes to the amazing savings, I am so happy that I’ve started the scheme. It’s made me fall in love with cycling all over again!”


A Lot of Benefits

“I am beginning to use my bike a lot more as transport to work and seeing a lot of benefits between saving money to feeling better in myself. It’s nice to ride to work in the morning feeling fresh” concludes Workshop Manager, Scott Baxter.
