In response to the cost of living crisis, Henry Boot PLC has announced a number of measures to help support its people and the communities in which it works.


In September, Henry Boot PLC issued a one-off payment of £1000 to over two-thirds of its people to assist with the rising cost of living, as part of a range of policies being introduced to support individuals and families during this challenging time.


In addition to the payment, and to promote awareness of financial wellbeing, The Group is also rolling out a programme of financial coaching, available to its entire workforce in October.


Henry Boot is also taking further steps to support local community groups. The Henry Boot Charity Committee has allocated a cost of living fund for each of the Group’s regional locations to be allocated to local food banks, helping those who need it most. In addition, colleagues are being encouraged to donate their time and expertise to support food banks and a range of other good causes within their local community.


Furthermore, the Henry Boot Community Fund, alongside support for local sports clubs, now supports a wider range of community projects and organisations, setting aside £10,000 for up to 40 local charities, nominated by Henry Boot employees.

“We recognise the impact of the current economic situation, not only on our industry but more importantly on our people and our communities. We hope that the measures and the support we’re introducing will show in some small way that we’re all in this together and that we’re here to help during these difficult times.
