Able Moving & Storage, Inc., of Manassas, will raise worker pay effective June 1, according to a news release.

Company officials are expected to meet later this month to discuss the implementation of these adjustments to employee benefits and retirement packages.

“We simply cannot afford to not take care of our skilled employees who are in our customer’s home and offices every day,” said Joe Singleton, president and founder of Able Moving. “We have a tremendous amount invested in our staff through the lengthy tenure of our employees, the amount of training and developments we are constantly investing in, and the benefits packages that make this job a career in an industry that typically doesn’t share these beliefs.”

Able’s entry-level positions for those who physically do moves as a “helper” is being taken from $10 per hour to $12 per hour by June 1.

“We are only as good as our weakest link,” said Singleton to his team. “After a meeting this week, it was decided that raising our minimum wage is important and we want to roll it out in time for the peak season”.

Increasing workers’ wages is one way to further motivate them to perform even better and retain their loyalty to the company. There are other ways to ensure their well-being like helping them to cope with the stress of moving during a company relocation or an office removal to quote some instances.
