  • Bike to Work Scheme  (6 comments)

    “It would be ridiculous for a bike retailer not to offer their staff a bike to work scheme. Can be used in conjunction with trade price and additional...”

  • Employee Discount  (5 comments)

    “You are allowed to spend £1000 at trade and no more. IT is monitored at every management level. Horrendous”

    Trade price is the main benefit, obviously a bigger incentive for some not everybody. And it is limited, requiring managers sign off after a certain limit. Additional holiday purchase is basic but good to have. Yellow jersey is the very least you can do to reward a staff member each month.

    There are very few benefits for working in Evans Cycles, there is the company run Ride to Work scheme but that is only a benefit if you're a keen cyclist and they automatically enroll you into the pension scheme.

    There is no benefits package. The company plucks an arbitrary figure out of nowhere and you are expected to hit it as a team without any incentive.

    Trade discount and ride to work schemes.

    The out and out best benefit of working for the company is the trade price. This is a heavily discounted staff only sale price on all items.

    They are run by a firm that is looking to try and maximise the value of the company as quickly as possible before selling for a quick buck. You also can't use bike to work because you are on minimum wage and if you did it would make you earn less than min wage.

    The best benefit package is without doubt Bikefest - A weeklong cycling event organised purely for Evans employees. Whilst other businesses within the industry can offer 'trade discount', no other business can offer a paid day out for all employees to just ride bikes, check out new kit and just have fun with friends.

    decent holiday, pension scheme is a bit off, trade discount is bliss

    Staff discount is one of the key benefits and one that draws a lot of staff in and helps to retain. However, it's not up to the industry standard and there are many discounts offered by suppliers we don't have access to, though I would say this is at times made up for by the sheer range that you can access. The variety of benefits on offer is increasing though these will often only really benefit those working full time. Bonus is offered, though in current market conditions where growth is small to non existent they are all to often difficult to near impossible to attain.
