EG Group announces pay increase for over 10,000 staff in UK
EG Group has increased the hourly rates of pay for 10,500 employees in the UK as it looks to reward them for their hard work and commitment throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
The uplift will apply across all of EG’s petrol filling stations and foodservice brands from 1 October and will represent an average hourly increase of 5%.
The move will include each staff member aged 18 and above being paid a minimum of £9.50 per hour while more experienced employees, such as team leaders and supervisors, will be paid a minimum of £10 per hour.
Mohsin Issa and Zuber Issa co-founders and co-chief executives of EG Group, said: “Our colleagues have pulled out all the stops and been nothing short of heroic during often very difficult times since the start of the pandemic. It is due to their hard work and dedication that EG has continued to be a growth business, performing strongly over the past 12 months. We are grateful to each and every one of them for their contributions and are therefore making a total reward package available to them which we believe is amongst the best in the country.”
