Who is riding the sustainability wave?
The trend continues: job bike, company car, ticket for public transport. Especially after times of increased home office and remote work, employees are coming back to the office more regularly. Whether voluntarily or at the request of the employer.
Here, too, employers are encouraged to give their employees more grants and other “employee benefits”; the competition never sleeps and the costs of mobility are increasing.
Mobility Benefits in Germany
Large (59%) and established (54%) companies are taking on new challenges and offering sustainable mobility solutions such as bicycles, e-bikes, public transport tickets, train passes, etc. Remote companies predominantly do not offer these types of benefits. In order to award mobility grants, companies first check the type of transport:
- Since most employees (72.8%) work in large cities (e.g. Berlin, Hamburg, Munich), tickets for public transport are the most frequently granted benefits.
- From an annual amount of 4,500 euros per employee, mobility costs are taxable for both the employee and the company. On average, the travel allowance per employee per year is between EUR 250-1000.
- Company cars are the most expensive benefit and depend on the employee’s position in the company. Only 33 out of 122 companies offer this benefit, and large companies account for 69% of these. In this context, means of transport can also be considered as indispensable requirements rather than personal benefits.
