For this month’s HotC Highlight we’re talking about the Living Wage Campaign (11-17 November 2019) and sharing tips on how you can start the journey to getting your business accredited.
We’re often asked at Heart of the City why businesses should become living wage accredited employers, and the message is simple: becoming accredited is good for your business. It ensures your employees earn a rate of pay which is enough to live on, addresses in work poverty and demonstrates your commitment to an ethical benchmark of responsible pay.
This week, the Living Wage Foundation announced new rates for 2019/2020. Lots of Heart of the City members tell us they pay above this rate, so we really recommend checking out these simple tips to starting your accreditation journey. We’ve also shared tips on how to communicate your commitment and make a plan to bring your supply chain and clients on board.
We hope this inspires you to get started!
