Insights for your company
Car benefits have been known to retain and attract key talent. As a HR Manager, it's your job to determine the right policy blend that incorporates both cost efficiencies and the employee value proposition.

Does geography matter?

While typically locally managed, HQ does often weigh in to control major aspects of policy. Blending culture with car policies can optimize your policy. A manager in Brazil may value a company-provided car more than one in Hong Kong.

How is the car benefit typically provided?

A sign of the times, leased vehicles are much more common than company-owned vehicles. Even more common - the provision of a car allowance.

Besides a car, what else should we provide?

Operating and maintaining cars can be equally expensive. Fuel, insurance, and taxes can quickly add-up and change a benefit to a liability. Make sure the company and employee are balanced.
