Stoke-on-Trent-based tile retailer Tile Mountain has said it will be introducing the National Living Wage for all of its employees from the beginning of September as part of its “commitment to continually invest in its workforce”.

According to Tile Mountain, the wage increase will mainly benefit warehouse and call centre staff based at Tile Mountain’s Tunstall headquarters. “This is a great move by the company as it means that our effort is being recognised and rewarded,” said customer services advisor Leighanne Farrand.

“As far as I’m aware, a lot of other local employers do not offer this wage for similar roles, so it’s good to see Tile Mountain encouraging loyalty and providing a fair wage for employees,” added Farrand, pictured alongside customer services assistant manager Adam O’Malley.

Tile Mountain managing director Jeremy Harris added: “Over the past twelve months Tile Mountain has enjoyed a sustained period of financial success, and as a result, we have been able to pursue our expansion strategy and acquire a number of businesses in order to grow the group.

“Our strong financial performance is due in part to the continued hard work of the teams both here at Tile Mountain HQ and our showrooms in Tunstall and Stockport, the endeavours of whom have increased services levels and sales across the business and have undoubtedly contributed to the strong performance we as a company have enjoyed.”

Harris added: “Tile Mountain has gone from strength to strength and we believe that to continue to develop and incentivise our workforce will help us grow even further.”
