BBK Accounts Ltd Celebrates Commitment To Real Living Wage
BBK Accounts has recently been accredited as a Living Wage Employer
By: BBK Accounts Ltd
SOUTHAMPTON, U.K. - Nov. 19, 2022 - PRLog -- Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at BBK Accounts receive a minimum hourly wage of £10.90, significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £9.50 per hour.
BBK Accounts is based in the South East, a region where over 12% of all jobs pay less than the real Living Wage - around 533,000 jobs. Despite this, BBK Accounts has committed to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day's pay for a hard day's work.
The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to almost 400,000 people and put over £2 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.
Director of BBK Accounts, Jenny Coffin explained: "I have long believed that the national minimum wage is not enough for people to live comfortably, and in actual fact I have used the Living Wage rates for some years as a guide to hourly rates. I felt that it was time that we formalised that arrangement by joining the Living Wage Foundation movement, and I am very proud to now officially be a Living Wage Employer."
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: "We're delighted that BBK Accounts has joined the movement of almost 11,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on."
"They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like BBK Accounts, believe that a hard day's work deserves a fair day's pay."
Director of BBK Accounts, Jenny Coffin added: "As accountants we do provide our clients with payroll services, and love to work with our clients to see how their business could also offer the Living Wage to its employees."
