The CEO of an Oxfordshire business has pledged to pay for all his employees utility bills this winter.

Fery Kaszoni, CEO and owner of digital PR firm Search Intelligence Ltd, has announced he will pay £250 towards every employee’s utility bills, every month for the next three months.

The business is based at the Witney Business & Innovation Centre in Burford Road, Witney.

Mr Kaszoni explained his decision to pay for his employees bills as coming from a place of “love, respect, and always being kind”.

He said: “Our team helped us create a unique service that attracted some of the biggest brands in the world to work with us.

“As the leader of a team of 50 people, I truly feel responsible for their well-being and happiness, and I feel responsible to give as much as possible to our employees, who are extremely dedicated and talented at their work.

“The foundation of our company has been built on love, respect, and always being kind – and this gesture of paying the energy bills of our members helps us reinforce the fact that we’ll stay true to our core values and put our employees first.”

Alongside paying for staff’s bills, the company also offers a four-day work week, paid gym memberships and a starting salary of £15 per hour for all full-time employees.
