Bradford based family run logistics business Expect Distribution has upped its game in the fight against the impact of Coronavirus.
The company has allocated a fund of £50,000 from business cash reserves to provide all employees who worked through the first two months of the pandemic with a monetary bonus.
Managing Director, Neil Rushworth, said to the board of Directors at the start of the pandemic:
“It will be remembered as to how we dealt with the crisis and how we interacted with both our employees and our customers and we have been focused throughout on keeping morale as high as possible and increasing levels of communication so that everybody associated with the business has been fully informed at all times.”
Recent posts on social media have highlighted their efforts in boosting employee morale across the business as the UK was locked down.
Expect have hosted “free brekky Friday” during April and May, with the Management team taking turns prepare and serve breakfast for all employees at the start of their shift. In May they held a holiday themed dress down Friday with a makeshift beach in the car park, the idea was ‘If our employees can’t go on holiday, we will bring the holiday to them.’
The Directors of Expect Distribution have announced to their employees an improved benefits package including additional holidays, company health care scheme, the funding of all HGV driver medicals, enhanced maternity and paternity leave, a new onsite gym facility and an annual BBQ for all employees and their families amongst many other benefits.
Rushworth added: “It has been fantastic to see the public support for our team who have carried on regardless over the last 4 months to ensure that essential items including medical supplies continued to be delivered as required. Every single one of the team has contributed and gone above and beyond expectations so we feel that it is only right that we continue to show our appreciation.”
Expect Distribution offers pallet distribution and warehousing services and has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Haulier of the Year’ category at the Motor Transport Awards to be held in November 2020.
