One of the first announcements under the new brand is that the company is to auto-enrol its self-employed plus (SE+) couriers, 85% of the network, into a pension by the end of this year. This move represents a £7 million investment each year in the earnings security of its SE+ couriers.
In addition, following discussions with the GMB Union, ‘Evri’ will also be introducing the right to maternity/paternity leave for all SE+ couriers with effect from March 2022.
The new brand will also see a significant investment in its customer service as part of its commitment to ensuring that its customer service „remains responsive, knowledgeable and helpful”.
“Although we look different, the important things haven’t changed. You can expect the same premium service, great value and unbeatable convenience,” – states the freshly launched websites.
