Sustainable employee benefits are both a key transformation lever and an important factor for Generation Z in deciding where they want to work.But what are Sustainable Employee Benefits and how can companies implement them?
We share our own experience at score4more. As a sustainability startup, it's a must that employee benefits are also sustainable, and we believe that a solid combination of benefits supports both internal and external impacts. Here are the five pillars we looked at:.
🚲 Sustainable employee mobility
There is a clear trend away from company cars towards flexible zero-emission mobility options, such as a company bike or a job ticket.
📋 Sustainable retirement plans
Retirement plans are invested in sustainable financial products, and while funds are more expensive than ETFs, they can also ensure that true sustainability criteria are met.
🥗 Sustainable food and beverages
Choose a startup office or hub with sustainable food (organic and vegan) and provide free beverages based on tap water or reusable bottles.
💚 Health and sports
Partnering with a sports provider and access to sports and health services can be co-funded by the employer.
⚖️ Family, work life
Whether it's home office and telecommuting, child or elder care support, social sustainability is based on support for work-life balance.
At Score4more, we have found that an advantage card is a universal tool that helps employees flexibly choose sustainable options that meet their individual needs, in our case we work with GuudCard. The advantage card is charged tax-free by the employer and can then be used by the employee to book public transportation, rent bicycles or pay sports club dues.
