Employer Perspectives: Nuvolt a living Wage & Hours Employer

We had the pleasure of visiting Nuvolt Ltd based in Cardiff, South Wales recently and they shared their experience as an accredited Living Wage Employer some of the reasons why they decided to commit to paying a real Living Wage.

Nuvolt is a forward-thinking company dedicated to advancing low carbon technology solutions. We specialise in advising, designing, constructing, maintaining, and optimising renewable installations. Our approach is holistic, offering a full turnkey solution for new developments, refurbishments, and retrofits of existing buildings. Our portfolio includes Solar, Battery Storage, and EV Charging solutions.

“As the co-founder of Nuvolt, I am immensely proud of our decision to implement the real Living Wage. This move aligns perfectly with our core values of sustainability, innovation, and quality. It’s not just about enhancing our employees’ livelihoods; it’s about setting a standard in the industry and contributing positively to the broader community. Seeing the tangible benefits in our team’s morale and productivity reaffirms my belief that when we take care of our people, they take care of our business. This is a vital step in our journey towards creating a more sustainable and equitable future.”
