Responding to the wishes of employees
PageGroup's challenge: responding to te changing wishes of employees and dealing with parking issues in large cities. "Athlon helped us to look for alternative solutions."
Olivier Macpherson - Regional finance director at PageGroup
This is PageGroup
PageGroup is a large company from Amsterdam that specializes in the recruitment of professionals for permanent and interim positions. The organization consists of 300 employees and manages a fleet of 170 cars. PageGroup is increasingly faced with dilemmas when it comes to mobility. This has to do with general changes in mobility, changing wishes of employees, but also with costs.
Olivier Macpherson tells...
In and around major cities we see problems in the field of mobility. This is mainly due to parking spaces. They're scarce and expensive. It's not surprising that employees opt more often for money than for a traditional lease car. They prefer to arrange their transport themselves. A mobility card and shared cars would solve a lot of problems. That's why we called in Athlon for help.
Our goal was to reduce the number of cars in our fleet and to compensate participants financially. With the help of Athlon, this worked out very well! It was not just about saving costs. I think it's more important that we identify the needs of employees. We also want to pay the differences between a budget and their wishes. Offering good mobility - tailored to the wishes of employees - is part of being a good employer.
