Galway cleaning firm helps with housing to attract staff
Loughrea-based Neylons Facility Management subsidises the cost of rent for some employees and provides security guarantees for landlords
A Loughrea-based company is having to subsidise the cost of accommodation for some of its employees in a bid to attract and retain labour.
Neylons Facility Management, which provides contract cleaning, security, catering and landscaping services, said it had been renting properties in Dublin to house some of its 1,200 staff, but had now expanded this policy outside the capital and into Galway due to soaring rents and house prices across the country.
“Somebody who comes to Ireland now, they can easily get a job but they can’t get accommodation,” Maria Sava, chief executive of Neylons, told the Business Post.
