Case study: Empowering change through fair pay

Promoting fair pay within organisations is paramount for fostering equity and respect among employees. One crucial aspect of this endeavour is ensuring that employees receive the real living wage (RLW), as set out by the Living Wage Foundation, individuals earning below this threshold struggle to afford basic necessities.

While transitioning to the real living wage may entail short-term costs, the long-term benefits are significant, employee retention and reducing recruitment costs are among the advantages. We spoke to some of our accredited organisations to find out how paying the real living wage has helped their business and employees. 

Feeling inspired?  

We are incredibly inspired by the dedication of the accredited organisations featured in this blog, championing the Real Living Wage (RLW) and embodying the principles of fair pay. These organisations have not only recognised the importance of paying employees fairly but have also taken concrete steps to prioritise the well-being and empowerment of their workforce.
