We’re thrilled to announce that Comply Direct have become an accredited Living Wage Employer, joining thousands of businesses, across the UK, who believe their staff deserve a wage which meets every day needs.
We have recently celebrated 15 years as a compliance scheme, multiple staff members stepping into leadership roles and the launch of numerous new services. Our momentum of business growth and success provides us with the opportunity to become an accredited Living Wage Employer, ensuring our employees receive a deserving wage which meets their living needs.
The campaign for a living wage was started by and is managed by Citizens UK in 2001, when the government’s minimum wage was just £3.70 an hour. Employers that joined the campaign identified real company benefits, that also ensured their staff could afford a decent standard of living. Even though the government introduced a higher minimum wage rate for all employees over 25 years of age in April 2016, this rate only takes into account what is affordable for businesses, not what employees and their families need to live comfortably.
As a Living Wage Employer, we ensure that all employees are paid at least the living wage and are committed to increasing salaries in line with official announcements. For Comply Direct, this attainment sits alongside multiple other accreditations and is a long-term investment into our employees, which encompasses our core company values, trust, commitment, and respect.
