We are delighted to announce that Levenseat is now an accredited living wage employer.
What is the real living wage?
In April 2016 the government introduced a higher minimum wage rate for all staff over 25 years of age. However, the government’s national living wage is not calculated according to what employees and their families need to live. The real living wage rates are higher because they are independently-calculated based on what people need to get by. By qualifying for this accreditation we are making a commitment to ensuring our employees earn a wage that meets the costs of living, not just the government minimum.
Commenting on the achievement, Angus Hamilton, Managing Director said “We are really proud to be able to make this commitment, which fits with our value of being a great place to work. The Real living wage is the only rate calculated according to costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. We hope our commitment highlights our dedication to encouraging a positive and kindhearted culture for the Levenseat Team.”
