The move, which received a standing ovation when announced at an all-company meeting, aims to help the firm’s 86 staff tackle rising costs, including fuel and energy prices. This payment is on top of the yearly pay rises the company extends to all staff.
With its focus on the maintenance and repair of electrical, mechanical, and electronic equipment across manufacturing, building services, utilities and many other industries, the company has seen growth over the past two years despite COVID, and particularly so in the renewable energy and electric transport sectors.
Matt Fletcher, the company’s managing director, explained: “We have a dedicated and loyal team here at Fletcher Moorland who have all worked extremely hard over the last few years, sometimes in challenging circumstances. As the whole country is facing a cost-of-living increase, we wanted to do something to support our employees and, thankfully, we were in a position to do so. We recognise how important our people are to the business, and the decision to help them was a no-brainer.”
Fletcher Moorland is a member of The Association of Electrical & Mechanical Trades (AEMT).
