Greenzone is an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every employee working for us will earn a real Living Wage.
Independently calculated, it’s an hourly rate of pay based on the actual cost of living, higher than the government’s minimum or national living wage. The real living wage is currently £9.90 in the UK, with a higher rate of £11.05 for London, reflecting the higher costs of living in the capital.
The real living wage, provides a voluntary benchmark for employers, ensuring their staff earn a wage they can live on. Over 10,000 organisations voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage. Greenzone have chosen to join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Nationwide and Ikea. As a business we’re committed to our most valuable resource, our people.
This commitment applies to not only directly employed staff, but also to our third party contracted cleaning and security staff.
“It’s essential that our employees are valued and motivated. It’s key to our growth and success. The financial wellbeing of employees is important, especially now when we are feeling the pressure of increasing costs. This accreditation is just part of our commitment, to retaining and recruiting ambitious talent. Improving morale and performance, for the mutual success of employees and the business.”
Louise Taggart, CEO Greenzone
