We are a Living Wage Employer2 Mar 2021
We are pleased to announce we have been accredited as a Living Wage Employer!
The pandemic has helped us to look at what we can do to become more sustainable, and one of the things we wanted to do was to make sure all of our team are earning a wage that they can live on - and making a commitment to that as we re-build for the future.
Our Living Wage commitment will ensure everyone working at TSS receives a minimum hourly wage of £9.50 in the UK or £10.85 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the government minimum for over 25s, which currently stands at £8.72 per hour.
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 over 250,000 people and put over £1.3 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.
Laura Gardiner, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that TSS has joined the movement of 7,000 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, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like TSS, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
