National Fitness Day 2021

In September 2021 the whole team at Dyce Energy took part in ‘National Fitness Day’. The day included a whole host of activities for the Dyce Team at our head office in Wath Upon Dearne, including yoga classes, kettle bell training, spin bike fun and a range of healthy snacks throughout the day to keep the team bursting with energy.

National Fitness Day is an annual event, which attempts to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier lifestyles through being physically active.
Here’s how we got involved at Dyce…

Welcoming Back our Awesome Team!

Dyce Energy Staff Return to Office Working

We are delighted to welcome back our awesome team! Over the past 12 months we have worked diligently to continue our excellent service to our customers, suppliers and Partners, all the while adjusting the way we work to make sure we remain online and available.

Due to the reduced impacts of COVID19 and the successful roll out of the vaccination programme we have returned to Business as Usual. We continue to work in a COVID19 secure manner and have in place; regular COVID19 testing for staff, office measures to reduce close contact and increased sanitation stations.

Although the way the world works has changed due to the Coronavirus, all Dyce Energy staff have returned to their normal office workplace.  We will continue to carry out any external meetings virtually until the COVID19 guidance changes.

Dyce Energy remains focused on driving our online services and ability to work remotely both for our customers and employees. It’s because of our innovative approach to working that we have remained open throughout the whole of the pandemic without any disruption to our service levels. It’s also due to the commitment of our staff and our supply chain to keep on working in such difficult times.

We want to thank everyone for their co-operation to date and wish our customers, suppliers and Partners a safe return to work.

COVID-19 Virus – Stage 3 Business Continuity Plan

We would like to inform our customers, suppliers, and partners that we began a phased return to work in September and are in stage 3 of our Business Continuity Plan. The decision was taken following the Governments advice to ‘Work from the Office Where Possible’. As a result, we conducted a full office risk assessment and introduced the necessary measures to keep staff safe while at work.

In light of the latest Government advice to ‘Work from Home Where Possible’ we have consulted employees and will remain in Stage 3 ‘Phased Return to Work’. This means that we have some staff at home and some in the office to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. We remain flexible to change and have planned for a second lockdown both locally and nationally and will inform you should we return to stage 2 ‘Home Working’.

Throughout the pandemic Dyce Energy has lost only 24 hours of phone lines being down and have remained open for business online via live chat and email. We want to thank all our employees, suppliers and customers for their support and understanding throughout this difficult time.

New Tariff Options for Our Customers

We are pleased to offer some exciting new tariffs to help through COVID-19. We have been working hard to understand our customer needs, whilst doing our best to act responsibly for business continuity throughout the lock down period. You may have seen our introduction of fixed debit tariffs, which enabled us to continue acquisition sales. We also made slight changes to our Partner Portal in light of the Coronavirus.

We are now excited to offer even more options for customers. Starting in June 2020 you will see the re-introduction of our variable direct debit tariff. You’ll also see a new product with a slightly higher standing charge for those customers who want a lower unit rate. In addition, we have relaxed our credit policy a little further to match the Government’s ease of lock down for certain business types.

To make life even easier for our Partners we have packaged it all within our online Partner Portal, giving the option to select the right tariff for customers during lock down.

We will continue to improve our systems and service levels through collaborating with Partners and customers, in an effort to help you focus on your day to day work and make our energy tariffs simple and easy to use.

For Partner queries regarding our new products please contact our Sales Team on: 01709 357315 or [email protected]. Customer can contact us via the same number or: [email protected]

Contacting Your Insurance Company

Businesses that have cover for both pandemics and government-ordered closure should be covered, as the government and insurance industry confirmed on 17 March 2020 that advice to avoid pubs, theatres etc is enough to make a claim.

Insurance policies differ significantly, so businesses are encouraged to check the terms and conditions of their specific policy and contact their providers. Most businesses are unlikely to be covered, as standard business interruption insurance policies are dependent on damage to property and will exclude pandemics.
