We are proud to be celebrating Living Wage Week as an accredited Living Wage and Living Hours Employer. The Living Wage campaign is a movement of independent businesses, organisations, and citizens who believe a fair day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.
We welcomed the Fair Work Secretary, Neil Gray, to our site in Carluke this morning where he announced that the Scottish Government has become the first national administration in the UK to become a Living Hours accredited employer, following commitments to provide secure contracts and flexible hours.
Stephen Currie, Managing Director, said “Gaining Living Wage accreditation in 2019 was a fundamental part of really establishing ourselves as a fair and responsible employer. Committing to
Living Hours was the next logical step in our journey, and this really helps our employees, especially against the backdrop of the cost-of-living crisis.
Our staff are guaranteed an agreed minimum amount of working hours every week. This stability in knowing their regular income allows them to arrange things like travel plans and childcare well in advance. As a Living Wage and Living Hours accredited employer, we also benefit from a stronger employee brand, increasing staff retention, and improved workforce morale. We are not facing the same challenges in recruitment as many of our competitors, primarily due to the fair and flexible reputation we have established since accreditation”.
