On 16 February, the UK retail chain announced its intention to enhance its employees’ health and wellbeing benefits by offering a Virtual GP service, free health check screening, and advice on financial management. With these measures, the group, which already offers employees a 20% discount on products from it Food and Clothing & Home ranges, believes it offers one of ‘the strongest all-round reward offers in retail.’ “We’re making sure that every colleague whatever they do and wherever they work, is properly rewarded and supported at M&S,” said the CEO, Steve Rowe. M&S also announced a minimum wage increase that affects 40,000 people across the UK store network. Effective in April, this increase of more than 5% will bring the base rate of pay to £10 per hour (€11.94) and move it up to £11.25 in London (€13.44). This is higher than the legal minimum wage for those aged 23 and over, which itself will rise to £9.50 (€11.35) in April (c.f. article No.12765). Faced with recruitment challenges, Sainsbury’s, Aldi, and Lidl are also planning to pass the symbolic £10 per hour pay rate this year, while Morrisons was the first supermarket to make the move to £10 in 2021 (c.f. article No.12307).
