The salary sacrifice experts at Fleet Evolution are always looking out for both employers and employees when it comes to optimising fleets and managing risk on the roads. That’s why they’re offering a winter tyres bolt-on to all clients for as little as £5.00 per month – to keep employees safe in adverse conditions and to ensure employers are still getting their money’s worth from their salary sacrifice schemes.

The winter tyres have already proved incredibly popular with many of Fleet Evolution’s existing clients. These tyres use a softer rubber compound than summer or all-weather tyres, and the surface of the tread blocks is covered with jagged slits called sipes. The tread grooves also tend to be deeper, offering more grip in conditions where there might be snow, ice or slush on the roads. The tyres are built to be very effective in conditions below 7 degrees Celsius – and with a bitterly cold winter about to kick in, it looks like much of the UK will be seeing these temperatures regularly over the next few months.

Andrew Leech, Managing Director of Fleet Evolution, says, “Winter tyres are a great add-on for companies offering salary sacrifice schemes. From the employee’s point of view, they improve safety on the roads and show that their boss is attuned to issues surrounding their wellbeing. For employers, it means fleets spend more time on the roads, rather than being held up by poor conditions or even losing staff through injuries sustained in accidents.

Andrew adds, “Our bolt-on starts from as little as £5.00 per month, so it’s eminently affordable for businesses of all sizes – but the added peace of mind is where the real value lies, from the point of view of the employers and employees alike.

Employers choosing to kit out their fleets with winter tyres will benefit from sustained productivity, even in the worst kinds of weather. It’s fairly common for fleets to have to take time out in poor conditions if they’re not kitted out with the right equipment – but premium quality winter tyres will help to keep more cars on the roads at one of the busiest times of the year.

For employers, the big benefit is obviously the heightened safety credentials of their vehicle when it’s fitted with these alternative tyres. Grip is increased on potentially slippy roads, and the tread pattern is self-cleaning, so even in snowy conditions, when most of the UK seems to grind to a halt, drivers can keep on going.
