Today marks the start of Living Wage Week. Living Wage Week is run by the Living Wage Foundation and is a UK-wide celebration of the Living Wage movement.
Here at Benefex, we became an accredited Living Wage Foundation organisation back in April this year. The Living Wage Foundation promotes a Living Wage which genuinely reflects the cost of living within the UK. It differs from the National Living Wage which was implemented earlier this year in that it is not mandatory – it is a higher rate of pay which employers can choose to sign up to and become accredited as a result.
