Exercise and cultural vouchers in paper format (e.g. Smartum, Edenred, Tyky) will not be accepted as a means of payment at the City of Espoo’s service and sales locations after 31 December 2020. In the future, exercise and cultural benefits can be used through electronic means of payment, including mobile applications and payment cards.
Modern electronic means of payment are more cost-effective and reduce the amount of manual work. The City of Espoo wants to promote the use of digital tools in its operations, and electronic means of payment in connection with exercise and cultural benefits are already widely used. The City of Espoo has offered its own employee benefits through electronic means of payment since 2009.
