Dixons Carphone is set to invest £25m over two years to boost its colleagues’ training and wellbeing.
The retailer is also planning to increase its frontline colleagues’ hourly pay to match the real living wage.
For 12,000 colleagues, including in-store, call centre, supply chain and ShopLive workers, the hourly pay rate will increase from an average of £8.88 to £9.50, while those in London will see an added boost to £10.85 per hour.
The pay increase is set to take effect from October 2021 as a reward for all the hard work Dixons’ employees have done throughout the pandemic.
