STePS eBULLITT EP8 XT Di2 – that’s the official name of Dominik’s new pride and joy. Or to put it more simply, the best-selling cargo bike on the market with versatile uses such as transporting people, groceries or other loads. Dominik, a passionate cyclist, recently picked up his new business bike at the dealer in Nuremberg. This is one of the new benefits that SupplyOn employees can choose from as part of our so-called cafeteria model.
In this model, everyone pick one of several modules, depending on her or his individual preference and situation. Possible options include childcare subsidies or a further top-up to the employer-funded pension plan. With the onset of the Corona pandemic, our employee have started to work primarily from home, making some modules, such as travel allowance, obsolete.
New to the benefits program: Business Bike and Urban Sports Club
That’s why our Human Resources department did some research and added two new options to the model. Firstly, the “Business Bike” already mentioned. Here, we grant a subsidy for the monthly leasing rate for a bicycle/e-bike. The other is the “Urban Sports Club,” which works like a fitness flat rate and is not tied to a single sport, city or studio. SupplyOn pays the Urban Sports Club rate fees for its employees.
But back to Dominik and his cargo bike. Why did you actually choose a cargo bike, Dominik?
Since I live right in the city of Erding, I hardly ever need my car, even more so since the Corona pandemic. Thanks to the bike’s enormous loading area, I can comfortably transport my regular groceries and even several crates of drinks.
I use my new cargo bike almost daily. Every time I ride it, I have a grin on my face when the e-assist of the boost mode kicks in and I leave the other car and bike drivers behind me at the traffic lights, completely astonished.
