Anthony Gold welcomes the new London Living Wage week
As a member of a movement of over 3,500 employers who voluntarily opt-in to paying the real Living Wage, Anthony Gold has committed to the increase – independently calculated to meet the cost of living – which will be implemented within six months.
The new UK rate announced by the Living Wage Foundation of £8.75 will apply to all applicable staff at Anthony Gold over 18.
David Marshall, Managing Partner said:
“We are proud to implement this rate in line with the London Living Wage. It’s a win-win for everyone. It helps individuals to live with dignity and improves motivation..”
Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation said:
“Year-on-year, we see organisations and businesses across the UK embracing the real Living Wage as they recognise that a fair day’s pay is not only the right thing so to but can improve the quality of staff’s work, reduce absenteeism and increase motivation and retention.”
“Today’s increase acknowledges that the cost of living continues to rise for workers everywhere and the leadership shown by businesses who welcome this is a cause for celebration during Living Wage Week, sending a positive message to the business community to show what others can achieve.”
