We are delighted to announce that we have become an accredited London Living Wage Employer! This means that every member of staff working for Gardenia of London will earn a real Living Wage.
The real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It is calculated each year and is announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week. It is currently £9.50 in the UK, with a higher rate of £10.85 for London, reflecting the higher costs of living in the capital.
Over 7000 organisations voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.
We are really proud of this commitment!
