Employee Choice, Car or Mobility?

16 Sept.





Participation is free

About the Smart Mobility Institute

The Smart Mobility Institute (SMI) is an organisation of Nexus Communication in collaboration with corporate opinion leaders. Its mission is to accelerate the development of smart mobility management within companies.

The SMI is the first cross functional networking group of international buyer profiles willing to share best practices, explore new possibilities, benchmark with suppliers and inspire each other with real mobility best practices.

At the center of the SMI are the participants: all stakeholders of corporate mobility, that are international decision makers within Fleet, Travel, HR (Rewards & Benefit), Facility & Finance. The SMI brings these stakeholders together and focuses each time on an extra target group, without excluding other corporate stakeholders in mobility.

Employee Choice, Car or Mobility? 

Like salary, mobility has always been part of Compensation & Benefits. But until today that mobility was almost solely focused on car-centric mobility through a company car. To stay attractive as an employer and to support the CSR strategy, offering a wider range of sustainable mobility solutions of which the company car is one becomes increasingly important. In this Smart Mobility Institute session, we look at how smart mobility plays a key role in your Comp & Ben package.
