How it works
The Cycle Friendly Employer UK is based on specific cycle-friendly measures across key categories like: communications, organisational coordination, services for employees and facilities and innovation. Each category contains various measures that businesses are able to choose to meet their different needs and account for their particular constraints, be it size, location or the type of office they are based in.
To get certified an employer will have to meet some basic measures like cycle parking, and providing information to employees plus some additional measures which they can choose.
There are three simple steps towards certification:
- Register: sign up to the scheme.
- Self-evaluation: use our free online tool to check if your company can already achieve the certification. Cycling UK will check your cycle-friendly measures are in place and issue simple advice for employers to improve.
- Certification: achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold.
Cycling to work is stress-free and seamless for staff and visitors. There are showers, bike mileage reimbursements, and incentives to get more staff cycling.
There are some facilities like lockers and regular events but they could improve. We’ll arrange an on-site assessment and provide advice.
A staff member is responsible for improving cycling to work, and parking a bike is as easy as parking a car.
