With the mobility budget, employees can exchange their company car for other transport options, for example a more economical car combined with a bicycle or bus subscription. But only a mere 0.15 percent of the target group does so today, two years after the introduction of the mobility budget.
HR services company Acerta, which collected the figures, suspects that the mobility budget is not yet known enough after two years, and that companies today have other concerns than mobility. Corona, you know. But it is precisely those corona senses that create opportunities, says Karolien Van Herpe of Acerta:
“What many do not yet know is that you can also pay your interest on your mortgage loan or rent with the mobility budget. When you work from home 60% of your time, you can use your budget to finance housing costs. A possibility that makes the mobility budget a lot more interesting for many employees. ”
