Its not just customers who dislike Energy and Utility companies with a passion. Company bosses in the Energy and Utility indsutries are amongst the most hated in British society – by their own employees.
A new survey finds that 42% of energy and utility employees don’t like their bosses – they are the fifth most hated in the UK, just behind Healthcare and Construction – both notorious for arduous working conditions.
Meanwhile the charity Citizens Advice says an estimated 600,000 people were forced to make the switch away from credit meters after racking up debt with their energy supplier in 2022, compared with 380,000 in 2021.
The charity fears a further 160,000 people could be switched by the end of winter if no further action is taken, and is calling for an immediate ban on the use of court warrants.
