GSS IS SHORTLISTED AS THE NORTHWEST LIVING WAGE CHAMPION
GSS 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 2,700 accredited employers.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. 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. Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross-party support.
Living Wage Foundation Director, Katherine Chapman said:
“I would like to offer huge congratulations to Global Support Services on being shortlisted for the Living Wage Champion Awards. The commitment of Living Wage employers like GSS 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.”
