Raynors start paying national living wage
When the government announced after the election that they were introducing a national living wage, Raynors started looking at paying it to anybody who would benefit from this as soon as possible. We wanted to do this as soon as we could, rather than waiting for when it became law, because we wanted to show our staff that we value them and their contribution to the business. We started paying it from the middle of November, giving everybody an extra bit of Christmas cheer this year!
Managing Director Matt Raynor said: ‘We value every member of staff here at Raynors, and I believe that it is important to show that. When the government announced the wage increase, I thought, why wait? We started paying the increase from November 2015. A higher wage is always welcome, and it is important to us that our staff are happy.’
