Here at Sycous, we strongly believe that in order to deliver excellent customer service it has to start from within, and that’s why we pride ourselves on ensuring our staff are treated fairly, recognised for the work they do, and rewarded as such. Our employees hard work and dedication to the Sycous brand means we are able to deliver the best possible service and products to all our customers, and because of this we only think it fair that this commitment is reflected in the wage we pay each member of staff.
Ever since starting the Sycous brand, we have been working towards ensuring all our staff not only enjoy the work they do, but also earn enough to live comfortably, making their way through the month without having to worry about how they are going to make ends meet. Stressed employees = an unhappy workplace, inefficient working, and in the long run, dissatisfied customers. That is why we are extremely proud to have been accredited by the Living Wage Foundation for paying all employees a realistic ‘living wage’.
Speaking of the accreditation, Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said:
“We welcome Sycous to the Living Wage movement as an accredited employer.
“Responsible businesses across the UK are voluntarily signing up to pay the real Living Wage now.
The real Living Wage rate is annually calculated to reflect the real costs of living. We are a movement of over 3000 UK employers who together want to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.
These businesses recognise that the Living Wage accreditation is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Sycous, join us, because they too believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
Joe Collier, Director, Sycous added:
“We’re really proud to be members of the Living Wage Foundation. We work really hard to make sure our team are happy; earning a living wage, supported with ongoing training and development and a great social atmosphere are all key to having an effective work/life balance.”
We want to thank The Living Wage Foundation for acknowledging the efforts we make to ensure our workplace is a happy one, and we hope you, as customers reap the rewards of our hardworking, happy employees.

As some of you may have seen, our Business Development Director, Bob Hatton, wrote an article for CIBSE Journal this month, discussing the new Heat & Metering regulations 2014. Here at Sycous, we do like to go on about the regulations a fair bit, so any opportunity to voice our opinion on the topic is one we grab with both hands!
In the article, Bob discusses the recent criticism of the regulations in the CIBSE Journal 2017, stating that he believes Terrance Rooks critical opinions are misguided and ill-informed. As a business in the heat and metering industry, we feel so passionate about the regulations as they ensure that, as Bob says “both domestic and commercial heat users are billed fairly and transparently for the heat they use.” Unlike other regulations, such as the Code for Sustainable Homes and Green Deal, these regulations have a real defined and practical purpose, which is most important when implementing and following regulations in such a sector.
The article then goes on to criticise Rooks opinions on the price of metering and billing, stating that “heat meters are expensive.” As Business Director at Sycous, Bob knows more than anyone that this is an uneducated incorrect statement, and these days, meters can be installed for less than £200. Also, with payment plans such as Sycous OpenPay, this cost can be staggered over a period of time, which takes the weight of heavy upfront payments. In terms of billing, insourcing an appropriate billing strategy with a software such as the one Sycous provides, an affordable figure of £24 per tenant per year can easily be achieved.
With the government wishing to expand low-carbon district energy in the UK, Bob believes heat metering is far from being consigned to the dustbin, and is definitely here to stay!
Bob Hatton would like to thank CIBSE Journal for the opportunity to voice his opinion, and encourages you all to let him know your thoughts on the new heat regulations:

Last week was a big week for the team here at the Sycous office, as we travelled up to London for EcoBuild 2017! The event, which is the leading conference for construction, design and energy, allowed us to share our passion for all things metering with tens of thousands of you – and we had an absolutely brilliant time!
Over the three days, we had some really interesting discussions with housing associations, local authorities and house builders about the importance of open protocol systems, and we were really overwhelmed with the amount of support we received in discussing this topic! At Sycous, we are really passionate about promoting the benefits of open protocol, as not only do they reduce risks, they also improve overall service and costs, a benefit for both suppliers and consumers. We do appreciate that sometimes insourcing metering and billing can seem daunting, however open protocol gives clients the opportunity to move between outsourced solutions when needed, whilst also allowing them to maintain flexibility and change providers when they aren’t delivering.
Speaking of the event, Luke Chambers, Commercial Director said:
“It was really interesting speaking to everyone about the benefits of open protocol systems at EcoBuild 2017. Our software, which has been developed to take the difficulty out of insourcing, attracted a lot of interest, and we were delighted to see you all share our passion for our Sycous software.
We would like to thank EcoBuild for the opportunity to speak at such an inspiring event, and encourage anyone who we spoke to throughout the event to get in touch and see how we can help!”
If you didn’t manage to attend the event, our team will be happy to discuss our range of software, hardware and services, and you can also catch up with our live tweets from the day over on Twitter @Sycous.
