Jollyes gives staff £600 cost of living payment
Pet store Jollyes is giving staff an extra payment of £600 to help support them through the cost-of-living crisis.
The retailer will pay the sum in four monthly instalments between November and February to ensure staff have extra funds both before and after Christmas.
Additional support will come through increases to the retailer’s staff discount scheme between 1 November and 28 February. This will include extra discounts on all items including pet food, toys and treats. Furthermore, there will be discounts of up to 60% on own brand dog food.
The £600 will be paid subject to PAYE and NI deductions to full-time employees based on the average number of hours worked in October or minimum contract hours. It will be paid on a pro-rata basis for part-time workers but will not apply to store managers.
Jollyes chief executive Joe Wykes said: “I’m very aware of the current economic climate, with inflation impacting every part of our lives, from weekly shopping bills, heating our homes and mortgage payments.
“The leadership team has been discussing ways in which we can support our colleagues and show our appreciation of their hard work and effort by doing something that will make a difference around Christmas.
“It’s not just about the cash. The majority of our colleagues are pet owners themselves and the discounts mean they can bring a little seasonal cheer to furry family members too.”
