What Would You Spend It On?
OK - it’s fantasy shopping time. No, not that kind of fantasy shopping.
Here’s the scene - you’re a senior manager of a medium-sized private company employing 60 people across three offices that are spread across a town, each office being no more than 4 miles apart. You’ve generated £9,000 of savings from green initiatives, and you’ve read up on the overall individual health benefits from cycling, as well as the sickness & absence benefits for businesses. So you think that getting a good number of the staff to ride to work / as part of their working day for all those cross-site meetings would be a good idea.
Cycle infrastructure in the town isn’t fantastic, but it’s a good deal better than in many parts of the UK. Between two of the three offices, there are on-road cycle lanes or off-road bike trails for most of the journey. There are Sheffield stands at just one of the offices, and all three have shower / changing facilities.
What do you spend the money on? Remember, you’ve only got £9,000!
