S and B supporting The Living Wage week
As an accredited Living Wage employer, we continue our support and welcome the increase in UK and London rates announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week (November 5th-11th 2017).
As part of the movement of over 3,500 employers who voluntarily opt-in to paying the real Living Wage.
The new UK rate announced by the Living Wage Foundation already applies to all staff at S and B.
Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation said:
“Year-on-year, we see organisations and businesses across the UK embracing the real Living Wage as they recognise that a fair day’s pay is not only the right thing so to but can improve the quality of staff’s work, reduce absenteeism and increase motivation and retention.”
“Today’s increase acknowledges that the cost of living continues to rise for workers everywhere and the leadership shown by businesses who welcome this is a cause for celebration during Living Wage Week, sending a positive message to the business community to show what others can achieve.”
