We are delighted to announce that Glen Group has been accredited as a recognised service provider by the Living Wage Foundation.
What is the Real Living Wage?
The real Living Wage is an independently calculated rate of pay that is based on the cost of living.
In 2016 the government introduced a statutory minimum wage the ‘National Living Wage’. However, this is not based on the real cost of living. That’s why we at Glen have voluntarily committed to going further. The Real Living Wage is based on the actual cost of living, taking into account the cost of housing, food, travel and other essentials.
On every new bid, re-tender and discussion on pay rates, as well as submitting a market rate bid, we will submit a Real Living Wage Bid, allowing you to decide and hopefully move closer to the Real Living Wage. The National Living Wage (NLW) will rise to £10.42 from 1st April 2023, an increase of 92 pence or 9.7 per cent.
We are in the process of writing to all our clients confirming the rise and asking you to consider an increase to move pay rates to the Real Living Wage.
The Real Living wage is currently standing at £10.90 per hour.
