Stoke on Trent based tile retailer Tile Mountain introduced the Minimum Living Wage for all its employees from 1st September.
The move comes as a result of the firm’s commitment to continually invest in its workforce as part of a rapid growth strategy which has seen the Tile Mountain Group acquire a number of other tile companies since late 2018.
Managing Director, Jeremy Harris, said: “Over the past twelve months Tile Mountain has enjoyed a sustained period of financial success and, as a result, we have been able to pursue our expansion strategy and acquire a number of businesses in order to grow the group.”
“Our strong financial performance is due in part to the continued hard work of the teams both here at Tile Mountain HQ and our showrooms in Tunstall and Stockport; the endeavours of whom have increased services levels and sales across the business and have undoubtedly contributed to the strong performance we as a company have enjoyed. Tile Mountain has gone from strength to strength and we believe that to continue to develop and incentivise our workforce will help us grow even further.”
The wage increase will mainly benefit warehouse and call-centre staff based at the firm’s Tunstall headquarters.
Customer services advisor, Leighanne Farrand, said: “This is a great move by the company as it means that our effort is being recognised and rewarded. A lot of other local employers do not offer this wage for similar roles, so it’s good to see Tile Mountain encouraging loyalty and providing a fair wage for employees.”
