APOLLO ROOFING, part of Apollo, the UK’s largest privately-owned liquid adhesive, sealant coating and primer manufacturer is proud to be listed as a Living Wage Accredited business committed to providing a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work and ensuring its employees have enough to live on to meet their everyday needs.
The Tamworth-based business was awarded its accreditation by the Living Wage Foundation in June. In addition, employees continue to benefit from Apollo’s bonus scheme, Health Shield medical cover and access to its Employee Assistance programme which offers home life support, mini health checks and legal advice.
‘A Better Working Environment’
Apollo Managing Director, Ian Cornelius, said: “Apollo has always maintained that it’s employees are its biggest asset. This latest move further demonstrates this and our business’s commitment to its core values of Safety, Care and Trust. We hope that the accreditation will help us to retain our already loyal colleagues, as well as attract new talent into the business moving forward.”
Commenting on this latest news, Jacqueline Hopkins, Apollo Customer Support Advisor said: I’ve worked for Apollo for just over 3 years. Within that time, there have been many improvements, all of which you feel are implemented to make for a better working environment for all employees. The last 12 months have been a tough time for everyone. But Apollo has always had our backs and always goes above and beyond to ensure a safe working environment. For Apollo to be awarded this accreditation is a massive achievement and highlights the management’s hard work which is not only recognised by employees but also now by the Living Wage Foundation.
Georgia Cox, Accounts Assistant, added: “Apollo being accredited with the living wage foundation is just another way the company demonstrates it cares about the company and the people that work for it. As someone who has been personally impacted by the increase in wage, it definitely gives a sense of worth within the company and a feeling of being valued to treat all employees equally.”
