In March 2020, Covid-19 changed our world overnight. Businesses closed their doors, all travel stopped and with People encouraged to stay indoors, this had a direct impact on jobs. Planning for a surge in demand, as more people consumed their meals at home and possible disruptions to our own workforce, we asked those temporarily out of work to help us feed the nation.
We can’t feed the nation without you became our strap line. We recruited over 300 new employees and rather than furlough staff introduced free lunches and a £1 per hour on-site bonus. While other companies introduced furlough, Finnebrogue introduced free lunch for all staff and a £1 per hour on-site bonus.
