Commercial has reported that a year has passed since it last confirmed its commitment to the Living Wage movement.
The Living Wage is independently calculated each year based on living costs, and accredited employers choose to go further by paying all their staff, including subcontracted staff, a real Living Wage.
In 2016 the government introduced a rise in the minimum wage for over 25s and called this new statutory minimum the National Living Wage. However, there is still a gap between the amount all employers have to pay by law and the real living wage that meets the cost of living. That’s why thousands of UK employers have voluntarily committed to going further.
Simone Hindmarch, Managing Director and Founder said, “we are proud and pleased to be a living wage employer. As well as being fair, we believe that being a living wage employer gives staff across the whole company a boost, at all wage levels, and contributes to staff wellbeing.”
