Grosvenor Group directors show support to furloughed staff

The directors of the Grosvenor Group, which encompasses Grosvenor Leasing, Interactive Fleet Management and retail operations, have agreed to reduce their salaries by 20% while staff are furloughed.

The decision has been taken as an act of solidarity, with group CEO, Shaun Barritt and chairwoman, Nicola Johnson, both feeling strongly that it’s an important statement to the business that everyone should align themselves to the new payment conditions during these unprecedented times.

All furloughed staff are being paid 80% of their salary, with the Group topping up the difference where staff earn more than the Government’s £2500 cap. It means all directors and furloughed staff are being treated equally, and those staff continuing to work full-time are retaining their normal pay.

“This is precisely what my father, Brian Johnson, who formed the business in 1981 and sadly passed away last month, would have done,” said Nicola.

“Grosvenor has always been a business built on a spirit of one team, togetherness and pride, and this is the reason why we have so many members of staff who have been with the business for very many years.

“All directors, and other essential members of our account management, maintenance, rental, admin and customer services teams, are continuing to work so that we can support our customers and their drivers through this challenging period. 

“We have decided not to furlough the directors nor any staff unnecessarily, partly because we feel we have the financial strength to work through this period but also because we would not wish to be seen as taking advantage of any Government support we do not need. 

“However, we genuinely feel for those we have had to furlough. It isn’t a decision that we, or any business, has taken lightly and the least we can do is reduce our own director salaries to 80% as well.”

Shaun Barritt added, “I’m sure many companies are extremely proud of the way their staff have responded to the coronavirus, and we are the same. 

“Those that have sadly been furloughed have accepted the situation very positively, and for everyone that remains working they have all gone beyond what we could ever have expected to retain business as usual. I’d like to personally thank each and every one of our team for their dedication, commitment and understanding.”
