AMFM celebrates Living Wage recognition
AMFM has become a Recognised Service Provider working alongside the Living Wage Foundation. The Living Wage commitment will see AMFM offer a Living Wage option for each and every request for tender.
This will mean that even more organisations can consider paying all of their contracted staff a wage that meets the cost of living. Recognised Service Providers also commit to paying the real Living Wage to all staff working for their core business.
The London Living Wage is currently £10.20 per hour and covers all boroughs in Greater London. The UK Living Wage for outside of London is currently £8.75 per hour. These figures are set annually by the Resolution Foundation.
The Living Wage Foundation recognises and celebrates the leadership shown by employers across the UK. Currently more than 3,600 employers commit to paying all of their directly employed and contracted staff the real Living Wage as part of the accredited employer network. Over 100 Recognised Service Providers work with the Foundation to offer Living Wage options for contracted staff, ensuring a real Living Wage is always possible when outsourcing services.
Recognised Service Providers are highlighting the benefits of the Living Wage at every possible opportunity. Callum Macleod, AMFM group managing director says: "What this means is that we will be writing to all our clients and offering them the opportunity to renew their contract on Living Wage terms.
"In London that's currently £10.20 an hour and we're hoping to see a significant number of our clients agree to this, which would make a considerable difference to the many of our operatives working in the Capital, who are faced with very high rent charges on a weekly basis."
Living Wage Foundation Director, Katherine Chapman says: "The benefits the Living Wage brings to staff and business are clear. I welcome the leadership shown by AMFM on this important issue."
