We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for the East of England Living Wage Champion Award and share the release below:
RehabWorks Shortlisted for the Living Wage Champion Awards 2016 in the East
RehabWorks, with its head office in Bury St Edmunds, has been shortlisted by the Living Wage Foundation for the Living Wage Champion Awards 2016.
The awards recognise Living Wage employers that have made great contributions to communities and industries by implementing and celebrating the Living Wage.
The Living Wage Foundation offers a recognition mark for employers that commit to paying the Living Wage. There are now over 2700 accredited employers.
The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet. An employer chooses to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis and enjoys cross party support.
Living Wage Foundation Director, Katherine Chapman said:
“I would like to offer huge congratulations to RehabWorks on being shortlisted for the Living Wage Champion Awards. The commitment of Living Wage employers like RehabWorks to responsible pay makes a life changing difference to families and communities across the UK. We look forward to celebrating this even more when announcing the winners of the regional awards during Living Wage Week which will begin on October 31st.”
The award winners will be announced during Living Wage Week, with one winner announced for each region of the UK: Scotland; Wales; Northern Ireland; the East Midlands; the West Midlands; the East of England; Yorkshire and the Humber; North East England; North West England; South East England; South West England; and London.
An independent panel of community leaders from Citizens UK; national community organising charity and home of the Living Wage campaign judge the awards.
