We are delighted to announce that the Living Wage Foundation has accredited Net Primates as a Living Wage Employer.
“Our team at Net Primates are committed to providing fantastic customer service, always putting in a hard day’s work – for that they obviously deserve a fair day’s pay,” says MD, Steve Cole.
What is the real Living Wage?
The real Living Wage is the only hourly pay rate based on the true cost of living.
It 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.
At the heart of the Living Wage movement is the simple idea that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. In 2016 the government introduced a rise in the minimum wage for over 25s and called this new statutory minimum The National Living Wage.
But 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 voluntarily commit to going further – because it’s fair.
The real Living Wage recognises that under 25s have the same living costs as everyone else. Rates are independently calculated every year and announced during Living Wage Week in November.
By paying the real Living Wage, employers are voluntarily taking a stand to ensure their employees can earn a wage which is enough to live on. Are you a Living Wage Employer? If not, why not consider taking steps to become a Living Wage Employer today.
