The Nevis Range Mountain Experience, near Fort William in Lochaber, is delighted to announce that from July 2021 they have become an accredited Living Wage employer.
They are also a Fair Work Employer ensuring that all of their practices meet Fair Work Requirements as set out by the Scottish Government.
The management team at Nevis Range, one of the most popular active tourism destinations in Scotland, fully appreciates that their most valuable asset for the long-term success of the operation is their staff.
To demonstrate just how cherished every single employee is they will now receive the living wage (from 01 July 2021).
Chris O’Brien, Managing Director of Nevis Range, said:
“As Nevis Range joins more than 7000 employers across the country who are paying their staff a fair liveable wage beyond the government minimum, we are incredibly proud to become an accredited Living Wage employer.
“As a responsible employer, we have always been committed to paying our employees fairly.
“Becoming an advocate for the real living wage is crucial to the sustainability of the business, taking this commitment further and following the very ethos of the business.
“The last 16 months have been a difficult time for our industry.
“As we begin the recovery process, we believe employers who pay their staff fairly in this way can be a driver for recovery and growth for our entire sector.”
During the Summer of 2021 Nevis Range will launch new menus in both their Pinemarten and Snowgoose Cafés.
The delicious Scottish dishes will include locally sourced produce, where possible, from suppliers including Great Glen Charcuterie, Letterfinlay Foods, and Jahama Highland Estates.
Nikki Howie, Commercial Manager of Nevis Range, said:
“Using the best locally sourced produce will give our customers a true taste of the Highlands on their visit to Nevis Range, and our menus will be more environmentally friendly, falling into line with our green policies.
“The environment is at the heart of everything we do at Nevis Range and affects every decision we make.
“That is why as a company we have made a commitment to never buy another Diesel fuelled vehicle.
“We have also electrified many of the ski lifts on the hill, and in 2017 we built our very own Hydro Plant that continues to power our Gondola and many other facilities at Nevis Range.”
