As some workers get ready to return to the office, Spin is working with companies to give their employees more sustainable and affordable commute options.
Spin is proud to partner with Edenred, a leading corporate mobility provider, to offer a 10 percent discount to Edenred clients in the U.S. who use Edenred's commuter card. In a webinar on August 24, Edenred and Spin will discuss the partnership and how Edenred clients can help use the shared micromobility service to give their employees a low-cost, environmentally-friendly commute option.
"We are excited to partner with Edenred to expand flexibility and convenience for commuters. The pandemic has highlighted the value that micromobility can serve in city transportation at the same time as remote work habits are changing,” said Ben Fong, Spin’s director of Business Development.
“Spin is at the forefront of redefining the post-pandemic commute and we are excited to support workers as they go back to the office. Our service will make the commute even easier and more convenient for workers getting back to the office for the first time," he said.
Edenred Benefits CEO, Ed Fleischmann, said, “By offering this exclusive offer to our clients, we're giving them another reliable, safe, sustainable, and affordable option to commute back to the office. The more micromobility options we provide, the better as we transition back to the way life was before the pandemic. Our goal is to keep our customers happy and continue to provide the best commuting solutions in the marketplace."
Already, the County of San Mateo has become the first client to enable this new benefit to its employees. Edenred serves 50 million users and 2 million partner merchants in 46 countries via more than 850,000 corporate clients.
It’s abundantly clear that the pre-pandemic status quo of single-occupancy car commuting was bad for the environment and bad for the wellbeing of individual commuters, forcing them to spend hours in traffic.
As companies begin to reopen their offices, offering employees healthier, more sustainable alternatives for their commute will be key to doing their part to help combat climate change as well as to retain employees who may not be looking forward to returning to their pre-pandemic car commute.
