Growing numbers of top businesses including Barclays, KPMG, HSBC and Royal Bank of Scotland have introduced a Living Wage.
They recognise that fair pay is not only moral and just but is also a sensible and profitable decision from a business perspective.
Businesses which pay a Living Wage see greater staff retention, decreasing recruitment costs, and higher staff morale and better quality service and production from their employees.
“Fair pay means motivated staff who stay working at Barclays longer. Improving people’s standard of living makes business sense.”
-Karen Pleva – Chief of Staff, Global Operations, Barclays PLC
Paying a Living Wage also adds value to a company’s reputation as an ethical and responsible employer.
