This is PageGroup
PageGroup is a large company from Amsterdam that specializes in the recruitment of professionals for permanent and interim positions. The organization consists of 300 employees and manages a fleet of 170 cars. PageGroup is increasingly faced with dilemmas when it comes to mobility. This has to do with general changes in mobility, changing wishes of employees, but also with costs.
Olivier Macpherson tells...
In and around major cities we see problems in the field of mobility. This is mainly due to parking spaces. They're scarce and expensive. It's not surprising that employees opt more often for money than for a traditional lease car. They prefer to arrange their transport themselves. A mobility card and shared cars would solve a lot of problems. That's why we called in Athlon for help.
Shared cars are useful for employees, but also bring us significant cost savings as a company. Particularly in the field of parking costs. We used to lease a Volkswagen Polo for 450 euros per month plus 500 euros in parking costs. We see this especially in large cities such as Amsterdam. These costs can be greatly reduced with a shared car.
Our goal was to reduce the number of cars in our fleet and to compensate participants financially. With the help of Athlon, this worked out very well! It was not just about saving costs. I think it's more important that we identify the needs of employees. We also want to pay the differences between a budget and their wishes. Offering good mobility - tailored to the wishes of employees - is part of being a good employer.

How can a mobility partner like Athlon inspire businesses to co-create more sustainable mobility? And how will its sustainability and CSR strategy have a positive impact on customers? We talked to Alexander Heijkamp, Sustainability and CSR Director at Athlon International, about his vision for the future of mobility and the role that Athlon intends to play.

Electric cars are here to stay, and at Athlon we want to ensure that our customers can make the transition from ICEs (internal combustion engine) to EV (electric vehicles) without the slightest hitch. However, customers often have a lot of practical questions. Ronald Van Slooten, Athlon International’s e-mobility specialist, tells us more.
