- British firm Rolls-Royce has announced that it will pay £2,000 to about 70% of its staff to ease the cost-of-living squeeze.
- This comes days after banking major Lloyds announced a one-time payment of £1,000 to its employees.
The cost-of-living crisis is troubling most UK households as electricity and gas bills have soared. Offices are reopening after remaining shut for over two years due to the pandemic, putting an extra burden of expenses on employees like gas, lunch, childcare, etc. To make things slightly easier for the staff, employers are also announcing several perks. British multinational Rolls-Royce Holdings has taken a similar decision.
The industrial technology company has said that it will offer a £2,000 one-off payment to its UK workforce to help it deal with the high cost of living.
