How will EU vote? ANL-160622-170851001

CEO Andy Alderson wants the 125-plus employees to have their say in the momentous decision, although he is not pressuring them to make a decision either way.

He said: “In an effort to encourage as many of my staff as possible to cast their vote in the EU referendum. I am going to give them all an extra hour of paid time off to get to the polling station.

“Whether they start late, take a longer lunch or go home earlier I don’t mind as long as they vote and no I’m not going to try and tell them which way to vote.”
