Manorview, an independent Scottish hospitality group, have announced they are sharing over ¼ million pounds of profit with their team via their Heartcount profit share scheme.The group, who own and operate 12 venues across Central Scotland, including wedding venues, hotels and restaurants, announced the profit share on Thursday night, during an all-expenses-paid party for the whole team, which was held at iconic Glasgow venue, The Arches.
Their Heartcount profit share scheme sees everyone in the business who has 12+ months service qualify for a share of 10% of Manorview’s net profits. The total amount being shared this year is £273,560 – and 471 team members have qualified. The profit share will be an earnings boost for all qualifying team members, and for many of the team, it will equate to 2 weeks’ worth of pay. The profit share is the biggest they’ve ever had – after having shared the previous record of £162,479 with the team in January 2023.
The profit share amount each qualifying person gets is calculated on hours worked during a 12-month period – NOT on job title or salary. This was a very intentional decision made by the Manorview team.
Managing Director David Tracey said “Fairness is at the heart of our decisions. Every person in every role across our business impacts our success, so it’s right that profit is shared in a fair way.” Mr Tracey continues: “The calculation process ultimately means that it doesn’t matter whether someone is a Kitchen Porter, Bar Team, Wedding Sales Manager, General Manager, Housekeeper or Director – if they’ve worked the same hours, they get the same profit share.”
The profit share is just one of many things Manorview are doing as part of their mission to make life better through hospitality. All team members at the group are paid the real living wage at a minimum, and the business also recently set up a registered charity, the Manorview Foundation, to support those experiencing poverty and hardship. In December 2023, they hosted 1,700 underprivileged kids across 18 free party nights – ensuring they could experience some Christmas magic.
Last night, the team were treated to an all-expenses-paid party at The Arches in Glasgow. The ‘Wild West’ themed party was full of surprises for the team. They were treated to street food, drinks, a band and dancers – in addition to lots of activities like a Buckin’ Bronco, photo booths and glitter face paint bar. All team members were invited to attend, and travel to and from the party venue is also taken care of.
Manorview Chairman Steve Graham commented “We close all our venues so that every team member can attend. It’s fantastic to get everyone together to show our thanks and appreciation, and celebrate what can be achieved as a team. I’m delighted that we can once again share profits with our team members. They do so much for our guests and our communities, and thoroughly deserve it.”
The team at Manorview will get their Heartcount profit share in their February pay. And the countdown to their January 2025 celebrations is already on.
