Employer rolls cheese into benefits offering

Posted On: Nov. 10, 2021 12:54 PM CST


Facing difficulties finding workers, a U.K. employer has added free cheese to its list of employee benefits in hopes of attracting job applicants.

Given the company – Wyke Farms – is also the country’s largest independent cheese producer, presumably it will be able to provide the benefit at cost.

Amid Brexit, the global COVID-19 lockdown, supply chain issues and skills shortages, the company is having a hard time attracting workers, said Rich Clothier, Wyke Farms’ managing director, according to the Somerset County Gazette.

The company hopes its tasty new benefits package will help fix the problem.
