It's only taken us two and a bit years, but we've finally got around to getting ourselves accredited as a Living Wage employer.
We've been paying over and above the London Living Wage since we first hired staff (the lovely Lewis and Craig back in early 2015) but, with one thing or another, put off doing the paperwork to make it official. We're proud to announce that today we have received our accreditation.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually, calculated according to the real costs of living. It is significantly higher than the statutory minimum wage. Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis.
Paying fairly forms part of our wider commitment to being an ethical business in all we do. Our staff are fantastic and they contribute a huge amount to what makes HB&B special! Cheers guys :)
