Midwich has recruited a full-time employee to help develop initiatives to protect its 350+ employees from the cost-of-living crisis.
Since the start of September, the AV distributor has implemented a number of measures at its Head Office in Diss, Norfolk, including the provision of supermarket vouchers; fuel vouchers; hot drinks and snacks at the on-site café; hot and cold lunches; everyday necessities such as food, toiletries and cleaning products; family treat bags containing sweets, hot chocolate, popcorn and other items; and firewood.
Mark Lowe, Managing Director (UK and Ireland) at Midwich Group plc, said: “We have worked really hard in recent years to continually improve what we offer our people. We have paid particular attention to regularly reviewing salaries and perks. We also operate meaningful incentives like our profit-share scheme and free share awards. In addition to this, if there are small gestures that we can make to help our people whilst the cost of living is high, then we are absolutely committed to doing everything that we can. We have plenty more ideas and have recruited a full-time person to help with this.”
