Galliford Try has become one of the first construction companies to increase support to its people with a one-off payment to aid employees and their families with the rising costs of living.
Individual payments of up to £750 will be made to around 1,800 individuals, representing almost half its employee base.
The move comes in addition to paying employees in line with the real living wage, and, earlier this year, investing in a significant overall pay rise for staff. In addition, as part of its Be Well programme, the Group has ramped up its series of training sessions, tools and resources for financial planning and wellbeing, recognising the important part it plays on overall mental health.
Commenting on the announcement, Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, said: “We recognise that the rising cost of living is challenging many households across the UK and, as a people-orientated, values-driven organisation we are committed to supporting our people through a variety of means. This is just the latest step of many, offering added support where we can make a difference.”
