Living Wage Week18th October 2016 / Posted by CRP Team
The Living Wage Week is being held 31st October to 5th November 2016. During this week, the new London Living Wage for the year ahead will be announced by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who has said “paying the London Living Wage should be a badge of honour for employers – and it makes good business sense too. As well as making a real difference to their employees’ quality of life, businesses experience significant benefits through increased productivity and reduced staff turnover.”
The wage is currently £9.40 per hour, enabling those working and living in London to pay for the essentials they need to live, and cope with unforeseen circumstances. Employers can sign up to become a Living Wage Employer to demonstrate their commitment to supporting their workforce.
We encourage employers to pay the London Living Wage, as know through our Recruit London project that paying this helps businesses attract and retain the best staff, makes people feel valued for the work they are doing and means work is a genuine route out of poverty.
