Find out how these Employees accrue an extra $1417 per year

A business in New Zealand is paying employees $10 a day to bike to work

Employees jumped in on the chance to participate for money, and the benefits reach further than filling participants pocketbooks.  The article from Stuff detailing the change quotes Tim Chesney, an employee at Make Collective:

“My gut instinct is that it could be something really good for the workplace. I know for myself I show up feeling a lot more energized,….I really believe there will be numerous tangible benefits as a result of people cycling to and from work”.

The initiative was successfully implemented after months of brainstorming on how to get more employees peddling. You can start a similar initiative in your workplace without all the work by taking advantage of BikePGH’s business programming.
