Midwich supports staff with higher cost of living
As the cost of living crisis surges, Midwich has announced that it has launched a cost of living package aimed to support its team of more than 350 staff.

The distributor has put together a package of initiatives that will be implemented throughout September and October with the aim of benefiting each employee at the company.

Midwich is offering supermarket and fuel vouchers, as the cost of food and fuel increases, in addition to hot drinks, biscuits and cakes provided at the company’s onsite café.

The company will also offer hot and cold lunches as well as everyday items for staff to take home if needed, such as food, toiletries and cleaning products.

Family treat bags are also available, containing items such as sweets, hot chocolate and popcorn in addition to firewood and ‘all=welcome days’ in the office which offer promotions, competitions and local food vendors.

Any items not used by Midwich staff will be donated to a local food bank.

Mark Lowe, managing director (UK and Ireland), Midwich Group, 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.”
