We are delighted to announce that Impact is now an accredited Living Wage Employer! This means that every member of staff and our temps will earn a real Living Wage.
The real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay which is based on the actual cost of living. It’s calculated each year and is announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week. It is currently £9.00 in the UK, with a higher rate of £10.55 for London, reflecting the higher costs of living in the capital.
Over 4,700 organisations, including Impact, voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.
This commitment applies to not only directly employed staff but also to our third party contracted staff. We have ensured that we have a plan in place to ensure that all our third party contracted staff, such as our cleaners, are paid the real Living Wage.
We are really proud of this commitment which is in line with our values and commitment to Good Business
Impact has recently been accredited as a London Living Wage employer. We are proud of commitment and all future temps supplied by us will be paid at a rate above the London Living Wage minimum.
