SEE celebrates becoming an accredited
Living Wage Employer
Press Release - November 2020
SEE are now officially recognised as an accredited Living Wage Employer.
The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the 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. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 250,000 people and put over £1.3 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.
“We are proud to be recognised as a Living Wage Employer.” said Jeff Alden, Group Strategy & Development Director for SEE. “We are family run business where our people are at the heart of everything we do and the benefits that the Living Wage can provide our staff and business are evident. It is important that not only do we recognise our employees hard work and dedication, but we also provide them with the confidence and support they need, which has never been more poignant in these everchanging times.”
Laura Gardiner, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that SEE Services has joined the movement of over 7,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.
“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like SEE Services, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
