The UK Living Wage Employer Accreditation
The Workplace Depot is extremely proud to be named as a member of the Living Wage Foundation, as of 2015. As an organisation we have made the commercial decision to pay our staff a salary they can live on. This is opposed to a lesser amount required by law (Minimum wage). The living wage is an independently set hourly rate, which is updated annually and is calculated according to the cost of living, as opposed to being enforced by HMRC. With the cost of living rising, employers have a responsibility to their employees. We believe at the workplace depot that this is simply good business practice. Motivated and happy employees paid a fair wage, must be good for everyone.
