We hope that other businesses in the region can be encouraged to implement creative and impactful ways of supporting staff during challenging times.

Mark Lowe, Managing Director (UK and Ireland), Midwich Group plc commented:

“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 & 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.”
