Effective Consumable Solutions is now a Real Living Wage Employer, ensuring that each of its members of staff receives a minimum of £9.50 an hour.
The company has become part of a small group of companies in the UK who ensure that they pay this figure to their staff, which is above the Governments minimum wage. The remanufacturer explained that becoming a Real Living Wage Employer shows that it’s going above and beyond to provide its members of staff with a happy, healthy and comfortable work and home life.
Felicity Rabbitte, CEO said, “becoming a Real Living Wage employer has been something that has been on our minds for some time, but the effort and commitment of our employees through these difficult times encouraged us to commit to this fantastic campaign. We’re pleased to be in the position we are, enabling us to achieve this accreditation by providing all members of staff with a wage which helps them meet everyday needs, something which minimum wage doesn’t do.”
The remanufacturer also referred to statistics which suggest there could be further benefits in store for them as a company for implementing this change.
Steven Meggett, General Manager added, “figures have shown that 93 per cent of companies who’ve taken the plunge and become a Real Living Wage Employer have seen enormous benefits themselves, including an enhanced reputation, increased employee motivation, higher staff retention, as well as a competitive advantage. We’re excited for both our staff and the company to reap these rewards.”
