Why should you provide chargers at work ?
Providing Charging points can be great way to improve employee satisfaction and engaging with your employees for them to be able to bring their electric or hybrid vehicle to work.
Currently your employees can charge at work without it being classed as a benefit in kind
There is a focus on companies to help drive a green agenda and improve sustainability ratings. Providing charging points will help reduce emission and fuel consumptions and help with a future of renewables
