We are delighted to announce that Elpromotions Ltd is now an accredited Living Wage Employer! This means that every member of staff working for us will earn a real Living Wage. (yay!)
The real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It is calculated each year and is announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week. It 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. 95% of our bookings pay at least £12.50 per hour plus travel cost. Our utmost priority is you – the staff who do the hard work and we want to reward you!
Over 9000 organisations, including Elpromotions Ltd, voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. You can find other organisations who pay the Living Wage here.
This commitment applies to not only directly employed staff but also to our third party contracted staff. We have ensured that we pay all our third party contracted staff and suppliers, such as our cleaners, photographers etc are all paid the real Living Wage.
We are really proud of this commitment and would love you to share the good news with your friends and family.
How will it benefit you and your team members?
