Living Wage Accreditation

Post by Mearns & Company in News

Only the real Living Wage is independently calculated each year based on what employees and their families need to live. It is an hourly rate that provides a benchmark for employers that voluntarily choose to ensure their staff earn a wage that meets their cost of living.

On becoming accredited, employers are awarded the Living Wage Employer Mark, a symbol of responsible pay. This mark is a badge of honour.

By displaying the Living Wage Employer Mark, employers can signal to others their commitment to paying a wage that is enough to live on.

Paying the Living Wage is good for business, good for the individual and good for society.
