Cycle to Work Scheme
“To promote healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution”
The Tax free “Cycle to Work Scheme” is a Government initiative that promotes a healthier lifestyle for employees, whilst at the same time reducing the impact of carbon emission on the environment. This tax free benefit was one in a series of measures introduced under the Governments Green Transport Plan. The scheme encourages employees to cycle to work and allows employers to reap the benefits of a healthier workforce. With thousands of companies signed up to the scheme across the county it is the fastest growing employee benefit in the UK.
Exercise is an important factor to general well being and is proven to have positive effects on all of the body's systems. Regular exercise reduces the risk factor of contracting many diseases, promotes psychological well-being and can be directly linked to the reduction of stress and weight loss.
Cycling to work in the UK comes with the inevitable fact that at some point you are going to be rained on! A Podab drying cabinet is a simple, efficient and low energy solution, with a number of options available for different size businesses. Grants are also available to buy drying cabinets that allows you to provide this facility to your staff with little financial impact.
The drying cabinet will allow you to gently dry outdoor clothing, waterproofs, cycle wear, work wear or any garment including those containing Nylon and Lycra, without mechanical action and without risk of damage. No more trying to drip drying on a back of an office chair or stuffed on the top of a radiator. No more dread as you gingerly put your cold, damp, wet coat. The drying cabinet slowly dries garments so that they are warm and dry ready to leave the office at the end of the day. With cycle times of just 45- 60 minutes a dying cabinet is the perfect partner for the Cycle to Work Scheme.
