Bosch offers bikes and e-bikes to >100,000 employees in Germany

Starting this month, Bosch employees have access to bicycles and e-bikes leased by the supplier of technology and services. The new mobility and healthcare offering is available to more than 100,000 associates in Germany.

With this mobility offering, we want to help improve air quality in cities as well as the health of our associates. Cycling is good for body and mind. It also promotes creativity – because we don’t always have our best ideas sitting at our desks, but instead while doing things like exercise. This is why bike leasing is now one component of our working culture.

—Christoph Kübel, member of the board of management and director of industrial relations at Robert Bosch GmbH

With this agreement, we have created a mobility offering for all associates. They can use the bike both for work and private purposes. Cycling keeps you fit, it is environmentally friendly, and it is often the fastest means of transport, especially in cities.

—Kerstin Mai, chairwoman of the combined works council

Associates of the Bosch Group in Germany with permanent contracts who have been with the company for at least three years have access to up to two bikes.

Excellent program to reduce car traffic in and around industrial cities and in city cores. TESLA, Ford, GM, Chrysler/Fiat and many others could copy Bosch?
