Staff Welfare

The welfare of Steenbergs staff is core to meeting our Ethical Policy.  In the UK, much of this is met by regulatory and standard business commitments to workers' rights, working hours, holiday pay, pensions, health and safety, and working conditions.

How are we going about this?

Steenbergs has a flat structure for pay, with all employees (including directors) paid the same hourly rate.  Pay is linked to the National Living Wage in the UK, paid at a 1.7% premium to the rates set by the UK Government.  Piece workers are paid on the basis of the same rate, but at a higher rate to reflect fair rate calculations to achieve the National Living Wage.  All employees are offered a pension through NEST, with most taking up this opportunity.

While these regulations are tough, Steenbergs seeks to shift to the even more progressive living wage standards set by The Living Wage Foundation, but to do this as the business' economics allow.

For our supply chain, Fairtrade sits at the heart of our requirements for our suppliers.
